The bank is one of the oldest sector banks in India with a history of almost 100 years. It was initially formed as Nadar Bank on May 11, 1921 and its name was changed to Tamilnad Mercantile Bank in 1962.

The grey market premium of the company’s shares have come down to ₹15 from ₹35 earlier.

Analysts have recommended subscribing to the IPO following the bank’s consistent performance over the years.

“TMB is demanding a slightly higher valuation when compared to its peers given that TMB is outperforming its peers in the majority of financial parameters. Given the consistency in its performance over past periods and healthy return ratio, we recommend a Subscribe-Long Term,” said a report by Anand Rathi.
