OPEN SECRETS: Gold Man Sacks Summary
Goldman Sachs, Gaohua and UBS Securities (Beijing) have won a series of IPO deals in mainland China. PetroChina, Asia's biggest oil producer, recently hired the UBS unit to help sponsor its Shanghai IPO, expected to raise $7 billion in the fourth quarter of this year
Foreign early birds to the market include Wall Street banks Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. Morgan Stanley has long had a leg up on most of its global rivals in the Chinese market. In 1995, it bought 34.3 percent stake of the country's first investment bank joint venture China International Capital Corp. (CICC).
Goldman Sachs owns 33 percent of the Beijing-based joint venture Goldman Sachs Gaohua Securities Co, which was established in 2004.
"UBS will become a neighbor of Goldman," said another banking source in Beijing. Goldman is working on at least two big-sized Shanghai initial public offerings for Ping An Insurance and Bank of Communications separately these days. UBS Securities is inheriting control of about 26 branches from Beijing Securities, which no longer exists.
Kingdom Holding Co 4280.SE, owned by Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, said on Saturday that it had revised its fourth-quarter earnings to show a small overall profit after initially reporting a net loss close to $8.3 billion.
The revision followed the completion of an examination by Kingdom Holding of its preliminary financial earnings for 2008 and a "re-categorization of some items of its income statement," according to a statement posted on Saudi bourse website.
Based on this "re-categorization," the company said, Kingdom Holding showed an "overall" profit of 276 million riyals ($73.6 million).
The company reported on January 20 a Q4 net loss of 30.97 billion riyals ($8.26 billion) after a dive in the value of its assets, which include a substantial stake in Citigroup (C.N). Kingdom's spokeswoman Heba Fatani declined to immediately comment on the official stock market disclosure.
