Pause in Adani Rout

Shares of Adani Enterprises surged, leading gains in the group stocks after the conglomerate's founders pre-paid some debt and traders covered short positions.

The group's flagship stock rallied as much as 25%, while three of its peers jumped by their 5% limit in early trading.

This helped trim the slump in the group's market capitalization to US$ 112 billion (bn) since US-based Hindenburg Research released a report on 24 January 2023 alleging market manipulation and accounting fraud claims Adani group has repeatedly denied. The loss was US$ 118 bn as of Monday.

The reprieve came as Gautam Adani and his family prepaid US$ 1.1 bn worth of debt in a bid to calm a selloff that sparked fears of contagion across the economy.

Concerns had grown over the billionaire's access to funding amid the turmoil and scheduled release of four group companies' earnings on Tuesday.

Hindenburg's accusations have propelled long-held concerns about the group's debt-fueled expansion onto the global stage.

Adani Green Reports two-fold jump in Q3 profits

Adani Green Energy's consolidated net profit more than doubled to Rs 1 bn in the December 2022 quarter, mainly on the back of higher revenues.

The consolidated net profit of the company was at Rs 490 million (m) in the year-ago period

Its sale of energy from the wind portfolio has increased significantly backed by strong capacity addition.

However, the wind CUF has reduced primarily due to a one-off disruption in the transmission line (force majeure) for a 150 MW plant in Gujarat, which is now fully restored.

Adani Green Energy's operating capacity is now set to increase to 8,300 MW, the largest in India, by the end of the financial year 2023.

The company is a part of the Adani group and has an overall portfolio of 20.4 GW, including operating, under-construction and awarded projects catering to investment-grade counterparties.

However, After witnessing a massive rally in the past two years, the fastest-growing stock of 2022 - Adani Green Energy has seen a steep fall. The stock has lost over 50% of its value in the past two weeks.

The selloff comes after Bloomberg reported a US activist firm Hindenburg Research LLC taking a short position on the group stocks.
