    Anomaly Makes Allied Irish Europe’s 5th-Largest Bank


    The taxpayer last week bought 5 billion euros ($7 billion) of new shares in the bank for 1 euro cent each, giving it a 99.8 percent stake. That left investors with a stake valued at 100 million euros. Allied Irish has since traded at between 9 cents and 12 cents, for a market value of as much as 61.6 billion euros, three times the peak of Feb. 2007.

    “The implied valuation of Allied Irish at about 50 billion euros makes little sense and seems to be an anomaly,” said Stephen Lyons, an analyst with Dublin-based securities firm Davy. “The increase in the government’s stake has not been fully digested.”
