    Anyone can make their own stuff public. – Lawrence Oct 20 at 12:00
  • ARAMCO had to produce financial statements ahead of it's $10 Billion public bond offering in April. There is also speculation that they may go public, but that's was the initial impetus. – D Stanley Oct 21 at 13:21


They are planning to perhaps make ARAMCO a publicly traded company.

In order to do that, it's practically impossible at the same time to hide the financial statements. People won't invest in a public company without knowing its financials.

So, even though ARAMCO is currently not a publicly traded company, someday it could be.
