Investors have been increasingly concerned about the Adani Group’s high debt levels and their close ties to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. The group has faced several controversies in recent years, including protests against the construction of a new coal mine in Australia and allegations of insider trading in the past.

Despite these challenges, Gautam Adani has remained optimistic about the future of his companies. In a recent interview, he emphasized the group’s long-term growth prospects and commitment to sustainability, stating that “we are very bullish about the future, we are very confident about the future.”

As the Adani Group continues to grapple with these market challenges, many investors will be watching closely to see how the group responds and whether it can regain its footing in the coming weeks and months.

The Rout of stock continues:

On Wednesday, the decline in the stocks of all Adani Group companies persisted as they followed the trend of the overall domestic stock market. Adani Enterprises suffered a massive 10.43% drop, with its closing value at Rs 1,404.85 on the BSE. Similarly, ACC’s shares on the Mumbai exchange also fell by 3.97% to Rs 1,755.20.

The other companies in the Adani Group also suffered losses, with Ambuja Cement witnessing a 4.92% drop in its share value, while Adani Power, Adani Transmission, and Adani Total Gas were subjected to a 5% lower circuit limit.

As the domestic markets experienced a significant decline on the current day, investors continued to exit from Adani Group companies. The BSE Sensex fell sharply by 928 points, accounting for a 1.53% decline, closing at 59,744.98. Meanwhile, the Nifty50 index tumbled 272.40 points, concluding at 17,554.30.
The total market value of all 10 companies under the Adani Group has dropped below $100 billion as a result of a substantial loss of approximately Rs 11 lakh crore since January 25. This followed the release of a report by US-based short seller, Hindenburg Research, which alleged that the conglomerate was involved in “blatant stock manipulation and accounting fraud”. As a result of these allegations, the equity market value of the Adani Group’s companies has witnessed a significant decrease.
The conglomerate owned by Gautam Adani has refuted the allegations made against it by Hindenburg Research, stating that it is in compliance with all relevant laws and disclosure requirements.
