Jana Small Finance Bank’s disappointing debut came as a surprise for many analysts as they believe the negative listing performance paints a less promising picture than initially anticipated.

“This negative performance falls significantly short of pre-listing expectations and raises concerns about investor confidence in the bank's future prospects. Regulatory constraints, borrower creditworthiness, and dependence on unsecured loans remain persistent concerns. Also, broader market volatility and economic headwinds could dampen investor sentiment," said Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

While the bank’s long-term potential remains, the current outlook warrants a cautious approach, Nyati added.

Jana Small Finance Bank raised 570 crore from the recently concluded initial public offer (IPO) which comprised a fresh issue of 1.12 crore equity shares aggregating to 462 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of 26.08 lakh shares aggregating to 108 crore.

The bidding for Jana Small Finance Bank IPO opened on February 7 and closed on February 9. The IPO price band was 393 to 414 per equity share.
