As reported by Reuters, Saudi Arabian petrochemicals companies Saudi Industrial Investment Group and the National Petrochemical Co. (Petrochem) have begun talks over a potential merger.

The companies' boards have approved initial discussions to study the feasibility of a merger but no agreement has been reached on any final structure of a merged entity, the companies said in separate statements.

SIIG owns 50% of Petrochem but the two companies are similar in size, suggesting a deal would be a merger of near equals.

The two companies had combined assets of US$9.5 billion as of June, Refinitiv data shows. SIIG had total assets of 19.2 billion riyals (US$5.12 billion) at the end of June while Petrochem had 16.4 billion riyals in total assets.
