The second largest AMC’s Rs 2,160 crore IPO did not include a fresh issue but only an offer for sale (OFS) from existing shareholders. The selling shareholders include State Bank of India, Life Insurance Corporation, Bank of Baroda, Punjab National Bank, and T Rowe Price. However, none of the shareholders selling their stake are exiting the company completely but have only sold a part of their stake in the company. With no fresh issue, UTI AMC has not generated revenue from the IPO. 

Analysts believe that the response gathered by the UTI AMC IPO could have resulted from the concern about recent outflow of Assets Under Management. “However, UTI AMC has the potential to regain its market share and increase return ratio,” said Jaikishan Parmar- Sr. Equity Research Analyst, Angel Broking. ” UTI AMC has a well-diversified and strong presence in b 30 cities, where SEBI has allowed to charge additional 30 bps and these inflows are sticky. The company has penetrated well into the B30 cities as its 250+ development officers and Chief Agents are based in B30 cities,” Parmar added. 

The mutual fund industry in India still has significant potential and a wide area to cover, giving UTI AMC plenty of opportunities. Mutual funds industry has grown 13.5% from March 2010 to March 2020. ” At a price band of Rs 552-554, UTI AMC has priced its IPO at ~4.6% of total FY20 AUM (~26x P/FY20 earnings) with ~10% FY20 RoE,” said brokerage and research firm Emkay Global in a recent note, while terming the valuations as attractive and justified.
