Capitalisation and share price

mBank shares have been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) since 1992, therefore we continuously monitor the sentiment on a domestic stock market. The situation on the WSEwas largely affected by foreign investors’ sentiment towards the emerging markets basket. A stronger US dollar and further monetary tightening in the United States in 2018 drove investors to move their assets from riskier markets to US bonds. Despite favourable economic situation in Poland and outstanding GDP growth compared with other EU economies, the WSE was adversely affected by the outflow of foreign capital. This was caused by a stronger dollar, rising US Treasury yield and by investors realising profits generated in 2017, which was a good year for the equity market. Domestic capital also failed to provide a boost to the stock exchange. Share prices were under pressure from a redemption of shares in equity funds managed by investment fund companies (TFI) coupled with reduced demand on the part of open-end pension funds. Trends in global equity markets were not of much help, either. Since January 2018, many of them have seen share prices in decline or under consolidation.

mBank’s share price at close of trade in 2018 (December 28) stood at PLN 424.20, which represents a decline by 8.8% compared with the last trading day of 2017 (December 29) or by 7.7% compared with the share price adjusted for dividends paid on June 7, 2018. In the banking sector only Bank Millennium performed better (-0.8%), partly thanks to investors’ positive reaction to the news of Eurobank’s acquisition. The biggest losers were banks ending the year in the red: Getin Noble Bank (-77.2%) and Idea Bank (-89.5%). mBank’s capitalisation amounted to PLN 18.0 billion (EUR 4.2 billion) as at the end of 2018 compared with PLN 19.7 billion (EUR 4.7 billion) at the end of 2017. P/BV (price/book value) ratio for mBank Group stood at 1.2 at the end of 2018 compared with 1.4 a year before. P/E (price/earnings per share) ratio amounted to 13.6 compared with 18.0 in 2017.

Throughout 2018 WIG-Banks Index sank by 12.1%. The general decline in share prices on the WSEwas triggered by the receding prospects for higher interest margins amid a stable interest rates perspective. Moreover, the stock performance of financial sector companies was also affected by the collapse of large debt collector in H1 and the suspicion of corruption scandal in the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (PFSA) that broke in November 2018.
