Before the Hindenburg Research report caused a drop in the share prices of Group companies, the blistering run of Adani firms, lead by AEL, on the stock exchanges propelled the Group to the top spot in market capitalization and made Gautam Adani the third richest man in the world.

Stock of AEL

US-based Hindenburg Research published a report on the Adani group on January 25 accusing the firm of “brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud” as the Adani Enterprises follow-on-public offering (FPO) to fund Rs 20,000 crore opened for subscription for anchor investors.

The shares of all nine listed group firms fell as the Adani group referred to the article as “maliciously nasty” and even said that it intended to sue Hindenburg. They have lost a total of Rs 9.1 lakh crore in market capitalization during the past seven trading sessions, or 47.4% of their market value. Market capitalization for the group decreased from Rs 19.18 trillion on January 24 to Rs 10.07 trillion on 3rd February
On Wednesday and Thursday, there was intense selling pressure on the company’s flagship, Adani Enterprises. Its stock has decreased by 54% in the past seven trading sessions.

Gautam Adani, who fell from third place to seventeenth place on the index of the world’s billionaires on February 3, with a net worth of $61.7 billion, has seen a major erosion in his net worth as a result of the decrease in the share prices of the Adani company.

AEL’s development pattern

In 1988, Gautam Adani, a school dropout who had worked briefly as a diamond sorter and as the manager of a small plastics facility, founded AEL as a partnership company. He was 26 years old at the time. On March 2, 1993, it was formed and incorporated in Ahmedabad under the name Adani Exports Ltd. Later, to reflect changes to its business strategy, the name was changed to Adani Enterprises Ltd. The Registrar of Companies issued a new certificate of incorporation on August 10, 2006.

The business grew to be the nation’s largest private coal importer by acquiring mines in Australia, Indonesia, and India. Its sponsored power plant grew to be the biggest private generator of electricity. AEL joined the ports and airports industries as well. In May 2022, it purchased ACC and Ambuja Cements.

Company incubator

AEL claims to have incubated and successfully listed six “decacorn enterprises”: Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd., Adani Power Ltd., Adani Transmission Ltd., Adani Green Energy Ltd., Adani Total Gas Ltd., and Adani Wilmar Ltd.
