BR Research: All


Only a couple of months ago, the environment seemed all set for Oil and Gas Government Development Company Limited (OGDC); the much needed privitisation plans took off well with the successful secondary public offering of UBL and PPL, setting the stage for OGDC’s global depository receipts (GDRs) issue.
While the delay in IMFs fourth review has less to with the governments delaying the earlier agreed upon power tariff increase, it may well have a bearing on the final outcome. In pure economic sense, increasing the power tariff is direly needed. It is because the cost of generation continues to be higher than the units sold. And also, the circular debt has continued to mount despite some efforts.

But the same cannot be said of Pakistan’s economic competitiveness, which remains abysmal in the global comity of nations (see BR Research column Pakistan’s Competitiveness-–any better, dated September 8, 2014).
Initial public offerings are back in the headlines and that too with a bang. Stock exchanges round the globe have been tied up with overflowing number of public listings. Some global business groups have even regarded 2014 as the busiest year for book runners, financial advisors and lead managers since 1999-2000 era of the dot-com bubble.
