The Kingdom’s authorities approved the listing on Sunday, although details about the size and pricing of the IPO were not provided.

Aramco said in a statement that “the final offer price, number of shares to be sold and percentage of the shares to be sold will be determined at the end of the book-building period.”

The IPO prospectus will be released on November 9, according to the company’s President and Chief Executive Amin Nasser.

Earlier reports suggested that the Kingdom will list 1-2% of Aramco on its local stock exchange, raising as much as $20 billion to $40 billion, and an extra 3% on an international exchange at later date.

A deal over $25 billion would top the record-breaking one of Alibaba in 2014.

New York, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo were cited as potential destination for the international listing.
