Bengaluru based Ujjivan Small Finance Bank Ltd (USFB) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ujjivan Financial Services Limited (UFSL). UFSL is an Rs 4000 Cr market cap NBFC-MFI providing a full range of financial services to the „economically active poor‟ who were not adequately served by financial institutions. USFB aims to offer small size loan products to underserved & unserved segments in India who are not served by other financial institutions.

Valuation and Outlook
We believe Ujjivan SFB provides good scope of growth as well as a favourable investment opportunity for investors as it accounts for 15% of the Industry AUM as of FY19. At Rs. 37, Ujjivan SFB commands a market cap of Rs. 6,394 crore and on valuation parse it trades at 2.5x P/BV multiples considering the issue proceeds and Rs. 250 crore of equity that Ujjivan raised two weeks ago which seems optimistically priced when compared to listed small bank peers which are trading around 7 times the book. We believe USFB has well managed asset quality with higher provisioning and resulting to higher return ratios comforting investors to invest at the offer price. Considering all rationales we recommend investors to “SUBSCRIBE” to the IPO offer and investors can expect healthy return on investment on short to medium term basis.
