This is the only national joint-stock commercial bank headquartered in Zhejiang Province. However, its stock price performance in the first year of listing was unsatisfactory.
There are 15 shareholders involved in the lifting of the ban of Zheshang Bank, including Minsheng Life Insurance Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Yongli Industrial Group Co., Ltd., Zhejiang RIFA Holding Group Co., Ltd., and many of them are corporate shareholders in Zhejiang. The intention of these shareholders to reduce their holdings is not clear.
In terms of performance, Zheshang Banks performance this year is also weaker than that of its peers. In the first three quarters of 2020, Zheshang Bank realized operating revenue of 35.239 billion yuan, up 2.43% year-on-year, and realized a net profit of 10.144 billion yuan belonging to shareholders of listed companies, a year-on-year decrease of 9.74%.
Among the 34 A-share listed banks, net profit ranked fourth from the bottom. Whether compared with the banks in Jiangsu and Zhejiang, or compared with joint-stock banks, Zheshang Bank performed poorly.
By the end of the third quarter, although Zheshang Bank had broken through the 2 trillion yuan mark in total assets, other core data were weak, with both non-performing loans rising and provisions falling.
After the lifting of this round of restricted shares, it is still difficult for Zheshang Bank to see signs of breaking through the ceiling of issuing price for a period of time.
