Akme Fintrade IPO Review

The brokerage added in its analysis that, while the firm has a significant presence in these underbanked regions and has lately showed solid financial performance, certain concerns should be carefully considered by potential investors.

For starters, India’s NBFC business is extremely competitive, necessitating strategic differentiation in order to sustain market share. Second, Akme Fintrade has had compliance troubles in the past, which raises further worries. Furthermore, the company’s significant NPAs and poor credit rating suggest future issues. The IPO value exacerbates these worries, since it appears fully priced in the present market environment.

“Given these considerations, we recommend taking a cautious approach to the Akme Fintrade India IPO. While the Grey Market Premium (GMP) indicates some investor interest, the associated dangers exceed the potential rewards for most investors. Thus, we rate this IPO neutrally,” the brokerage said.

Dilip Davda, the contributing editor at Chittorgarh, stated that the firm operates in a highly competitive and fragmented financial services market. It also has ever-changing regulatory guidelines. Based on FY24 annualised profits, the issue is priced aggressively. There is no harm in declining this expensive offer.
