KakaoBank shares decline for 3 days amid downward pressure

Sep 7, 2021

PUBLISHED :September 07, 2021 - 10:52 UPDATED :September 07, 2021 - 10:52 KakaoBank’s mascot is displayed at the Korea Exchange on Aug. 6, when the mobile-only bank went public. (Yonhap) KakaoBank, the country’s mobile-only bank that went public a month ago, saw its shares fall for three consecutive days on September 6 due to an expiring lock-in period for millions of its shares. Shares in the banking arm of mobile giant Kakao declined 4.21 percent to close at 77,400 won ($66.76), while the benchmark Kospi inched up 0.07 percent to 3,203.33 points. Some 3.14 million shares or 8.72 percent of the total shares subscribed by institutional investors became available for trading as their lock-in period ended on September 6. The downward pressure began when the market learned that the Korea Post sold 90 percent of its holdings in KakaoBank, pocketing more than 1.1 trillion won. Korea Post’s sell-off pushed down KakaoBank shares more than 7 percent on Stember 2. “Korea Post’s block deal which followed that of Netmarble heightened market concerns over ample supply,” Choi Jung-uk, an analyst at Hana Financial Investment Co., wrote in a report on September 6. “Having said that, foreign investors are estimated to have taken more than 80 percent of the Korea Post block deal, an indicator of foreign investors’ interests in KakaoBank.” Korea Post’s exit could instigate other early investors such as Yes24 to sell their shares, wrote Kim Soo-hyun, a researcher at Shinhan Financial Investment. KakaoBank went public with the IPO price of 39,000 won per share and had the biggest market capitalization for a financial institution. By Park Ga-young (
