AdvertisementThoothukudi-based Tamilnad Mercantile Bank listed at ₹510 on the bourses today, higher than its IPO price of ₹500. The ₹10 listing premium is less than what the grey market had predicted.
The IPO’s grey market premium has been falling since it opened. As of yesterday, it stood at ₹15. It was pegged at ₹35 when the IPO opened.
The market capitalisation of the company stands at ₹8,075 crore, according to BSE data.
Analysts had predicted a tepid listing for the company’s shares.
“We expect a flat or a negative listing based on the current GMP or ₹12 i.e. 2.5% over its issue price and less than stellar subscription numbers. We had assigned avoid rating because of the precarious legal challenges and the lack of complete clarity on the management’s long-term performance despite the improvement in fundamentals in the last three years,” Aayush Agrawal, senior research analyst at Swastika Investmart.
The IPO was subscribed 2.86 times amidst volatile market conditions. The retail portion of the IPO saw a subscription of 6.48 times the offer.
The proceeds from the IPO will be used to augment tier-I capital base to meet future capital requirements.

The bank has built a strong network of customers in the state of Tamil Nadu. As of March 31, 2022 Tamil Nadu contributed to 75% of its deposits and advances.
Adding to it, the bank’s profitability nearly doubled in the last three financial years.
