Muthoot Finance disappoints listing gainers, fails to touch Rs.200 level

Muthoot Finance Limited, which listed its shares on the exchanges today, brought little cheer to investors who expected the stock to list above Rs.200. The share opened at Rs.180 on the BSE, at a marginal premium of 2.85% over its Issue Price of Rs.175/- per share.

Although the share did hover around Rs.190 for first few minutes of trade, but subsequently slid down to levels near its Issue Price. It even went on to take a dip up significantly below par to level of Rs.161.50 as the Intra-day low on the BSE, before closing at Rs.176.25 on the BSE, at a negligible premium of 0.71% on the Issue Price

Muthoot Finance Limited is the largest gold financing company in India in terms of loan portfolio, according to IMaCS Industry Report (2010 Update). It provides personal and business loans secured by gold jewellery, or Gold Loans, primarily to individuals who possess gold jewellery but could not access formal credit within a reasonable time, or to whom credit may not be available at all, to meet unanticipated or other short-term liquidity requirements
