By December 10, the National Welfare Fund Samruk-Kazyna intends to hold an IPO of the national company KazMunayGas. The order book will open in early November, which is when the price of the stock will be known. To date, the book value is 14,325 tenge, but the organizers promise a discount. It will not be people's IPO, as it happened, for example, with KazTransOil ten years ago, but the shares will primarily be sold to citizens of Kazakhstan and institutional investors, and what will remain for foreign investors.
