Tamilnad Mercantile Bank IPO: GMP Today
As per the information available on BSE, the equity shares of Tamilnad Mercantile Bank Limited shall be listed and admitted to dealings on the BSE and NSE in due course. So, all eyes are now set on Tamilnad Mercantile Bank IPO listing date. Meanwhile, the grey market is also signaling about the kind of debut Tamilnad Mercantile Bank shares may have. According to market observers, Tamilnad Bank IPO GMP (grey market premium) today is Rs 15 which means shares of Tamilnad Mercantile Bank are available at a premium of Rs 15 in grey market today.
However, stock market experts said that GMP is not an ideal indicator about the possible premium on the listing date. They said that grey market premium is completely speculative and it has no fundamental connection with the stock. They advised allottees to stick with their conviction and suggested following what its balance sheet says.
What to Expect?
Aayush Agrawal, Senior Research Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd., said: “We expect a flat or a negative listing based on the current GMP or Rs.12 i.e. 2.5 per cent 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."
TMB, founded in 1921, had been in the public eye of late due to squabbles among the promoters. The four promoter outfits – comprising trading members of the Nadar community – belonged to four towns in Tamil Nadu and the bonhomie among them had given way to mutual distrust over the way the bank was functioning, or rather run by a section.
