Tamilnad Mercantile Bank IPO Should you Subscribe on Day 2?

Most analysts said retail investors should apply for the IPO citing consistent financial performance and healthy asset quality. At the same time, a few are cautious in the short term as they see a couple of risks.

“At the upper end of the price band, the bank is valued at 1.35 times price to book value (after issue) as on 31 March 2022 which looks reasonable. However, a change in management and pending legal proceedings in relation to shareholding remain risks,” said Kajal Gandhi at ICICIdirect.

The broker said investors can apply for the IPO with a long term view. As much as 37.7 percent of equity share capital is subject to legal proceedings, which ICICI Securities said is a key risk. Besides, significant regional concentration in southern India also poses a risk.

“Company’s consolidated revenue growth of 5 per cent over FY20-22 but interest/discount on advances was of 4.1 per cent over FY20-22. It It will be challenging for the bank to grow its business in Tamil Naidu as well as new geographics. Looking at the current valuation of price to book of 1.4 times we believe that near-term positive has been priced in the IPO price. Thus, we have a NEUTRAL rating on the issue,” said Angel One.

Tamilnad Mercantile Bank (TMB) is one of the oldest private sector banks with a history of 101 years, having been established in 1921 as Nadar Bank. The bank offers a wide range of services primarily to micro, small and medium enterprises, agricultural and retail customers.

The shares of the company are expected to list on stock exchanges BSE and NSE on Thursday, September 15, 2022.
