Should you invest in TMB IPO?
The overall performance of TMB has been quite impressive in the past years especially in terms of its core financials, like the increase in deposits by 10.46% CAGR, increase in interests income by 17% CAGR, and decrease in gross NPA from 3.62% to 1.69%.
The ROA (Return on Assets ratio)for the bank is also higher at 1.66% compared to the average of 0.80% of its peers. Reviewing these hard data and given its more than 100-year-old existence, it can be safely said that TMB Bank has established itself as a trustworthy name among the masses.
Also, the TMB IPO is priced at approximately 1.4 times higher than its book value in FY 22 (based on fully diluted post-issue equity). All these factors make it an overall attractive investment option for investors looking for long-term investments. However, investors looking for listing gains may be disappointed as the grey market premium was approximately 10% which had eventually come down to Rs. 7 by end of the trading day on 5th September 2022.
