IPO Buzz

On Tuesday, telecom operator Bharti Airtel said Airtel Africa plans to go for an initial public offering (IPO) and listing on London Stock Exchange.

As per an article in a leading financial daily, the documents have been submitted for approval to the UK markets regulator.

The company, which offers telecom services in 14 countries in Africa, plans to use the proceeds from issue of new shares to reduce debt.

Bharti Airtel said in a filing to BSE, 'In furtherance to our previous intimations in this regard, we wish to inform you that Airtel Africa, a subsidiary of the company, has announced its potential intention to undertake an initial public offering for listing its equity shares on London Stock Exchange'.

Speaking of IPOs, we at Equitymaster believe a merit-based selection, primarily including valuation, business, and management quality, is the logical way to go about investing in IPOs.

If it means going against the herd, so be it. And going by recent past, this strategy has been proven to be successful more often.

From the Commodity Space...

India's crude oil production during April stood at 2.71 million tonnes while gas production was at 2655.89 million standard cubic meters (mscm).

According to data shared by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, India's crude oil production during April was 6.9% lower than April 2018 levels.

Natural gas production was at 0.26% lower than April 2018 production. Refinery production was at 20.70 million tonnes, 4.2% higher compared to April 2018 production.

Speaking of crude oil, Vijay Bhambwani, editor of Weekly Cash Alerts, called the US President Donald Trump's bluff on crude oil in his recent article. Here's an excerpt of what he wrote...

  • From 2018 US is the largest oil producing country in the world with 13.4% of the global oil output daily.

    The USA has jumped ahead of Saudi Arabia and Russia in oil output. My question to every oil trader out there is this - as long as the USA was an importer, it made sense to push for lower oil prices. There were tangible benefits in doing so.

    President Donald Trump runs the world's largest debtor nation. One that is gasping for export income and a strong dollar. A firm USD ensures easier servicing and repayment of debt and vice versa. So now that Trump wants to export oil, and earn petro dollars does it benefit him if oil prices were to go up or down? So why does he tweet for lower oil prices?
