Cepsa’s single shareholder, Mubadala (Abu Dhabi Sovereign Fund), expects to raise up to 2.019 billion euros for the capital of the oil company put up for sale, which implies a value for the company in the range of 7.010 – 8.085 billion euros (more than 11.2 billion euros if the debt is included).
Cepsa will be launched onto the stock market in the last quarter of the year through an IPO. Valuations are being discussed in the range of 10 or 11 billion euros for 100% of the company. The Abu Dhabi sovereign fund (IPIC) bought 100% of Cepsa in 2011. At that stage Cepsa was listed in the stock market for approximately 7.5 billion euros.
