Around 4.14 million shares, representing 0.57 percent of the company, will be allocated to certain employees of the company and its subsidiaries as part of the employee IPO grant plan.
ACWA Power’s IPO is expected to raise more than $1 billion, valuing the company about $10 billion, two sources have told Reuters on condition of anonymity, asking not to be named because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
