Business Headlines : Which is the most profitable company in the world?


The first official glimpse of Saudi Aramco’s financial performance confirms the state run oil giant, which produces around 10% of the world’s crude oil, can generate profit like no other company on earth. Net profit last year was 111.1 Billion $ (roughly 7,70,000 crore ₹) which is equal to the combined profits of behemoths such as Apple, Google and Exxon Mobil; which makes Aramco a super behemoth of an entity. Aramco’s financials were made public after decades because it plans to raise money via an issue of bonds for the acquisition of Sabic from international investors.

The Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) has arrested Hari Sankaran, who was the former Chairman, in connection with its ongoing investigation, marking the first arrest in the fraud hit IL&FS.
