Saudi Aramco unveils the financial secrets of the most profitable corporation in the world. In its recent public bond issuance prospectus, Aramco offers the first official view of its financial affairs. The bottomline is about $111 billion for the fiscal year 2018-2019. This annual profit is more than the sum of net profits from Apple and Alphabet. As the sole controlling shareholder of the oil company Aramco, the Saudi Arabia government receives $56 billion oil production royalties, $102 billion income taxes, and $107 billion cash dividends from Aramco in the fiscal year 2018-2019. This capital allocation is equivalent to 2.5+ times the $100 billion SoftBank Vision Fund in Japan.

If the international stock investment community pays the equivalent market value of 16-18 times the $100+ billion net profit per annum, the forthcoming Aramco IPO can reach the astronomical stock market capitalization of almost $2 trillion. Saudi Arabia government can use the cash proceeds to buy equity stakes in multinational tech companies for better diversification and national security. In the grand scheme, this stock investment strategy brings forward the future cash flows from Aramco for the middle-east government to diversify outside the energy sector.
