Adani Stocks Back On Track After the Hindenburg Report


2023 has been one of the most eventful years for the Adani Group. Throughout the year, Gautam Adani faced challenges marked by allegations of acquisitions and investor losses. However, despite the controversies, the Adani Group recovered from the situation and continued on its journey towards acquiring success. Many strategic acquisitions were made, and multiple expansion activities were carried out in due course.

As per Adani latest updates, the final dismissal of the Hindenburg allegations by the Supreme Court on January 3 2024, was a respite for the company. First and foremost, by choosing not to get involved in SEBI’s investigations without concrete proof of SEBI’s shortcomings, the Supreme Court has shown its faith in the regulatory framework. The court clearly rejected the use of unreliable reports from third parties to question the effectiveness of India’s statutory regulators.

So, here’s a quick look at how the Adani Group’s journey towards success became all the more straightforward after the Hindenburg report

The Hindenburg Report:

According to Adani latest updates, on January 24 2023, Hindenburg Research, a short selling firm that specialises in finding loopholes in various company’s financials, came up with multiple allegations against the Adani Group regarding stock price manipulation and money laundering. In the Hindenburg Report, the company sought answers to 88 questions from the Adani Group. This served as a massive blow to the conglomerate. SEBI started its probe on the charges made by the Hindenburg Report under the watch of the Supreme Court. This caused the shares of the Adani Group to crash for a considerable amount of time.

After the Hindenburg Report, the market valuation of the listed companies began to fall. Many investors also started drawing themselves away from the happenings of the Adani Group. However, the Adani Group became clear of the allegations, and the share prices began to recover. By the end of the year, the conglomerate had completely recovered from the situation. The investors once again started to invest in the various subsidiaries of the Adani Group.

The Role of the Investors:

The Adani Group’s companies, which owned some of the country’s best airports, ports and power plants, started to draw big investors like GQG Partners, having assets of over 100 billion USD. In fact, Rajiv Jain’s GQG Partners and Qatar Investment Authority were two of the most prominent investors who bet on the Adani Group’s ability to turn the situation around.

Around 4.21 billion USD investment in the various stocks of Adani Group, which were made from March to August 2023, has doubled by now. The QIA’s 474 million USD investment in Adani Green has far-fetched a 74% return. This has drawn the attention of the investors towards the happenings of the conglomerate. The retail investors in Adani Enterprises went up by over three lakhs. For Adani Total Gas, the value went up by 3.5 lakhs; for Adani Green, it was up by 2.8 lakhs.

The Path That Lies Ahead:

The Adani Group has been slowly progressing towards success by increasing its hold over the port sector, building new data center and investing in joint ventures. The company has already invested over INR 5,000 crores in the country’s various airports during the first half of the fiscal year. It plans to make more investments in this sector.

Adani New Industries is planning to achieve 10 GW of integrated manufacturing ecosystem by the end of the year, as mentioned in Adani’s latest updates. TotalEnergies of France has also strengthened its business partnership with the Adani Group by investing 300 million USD in a joint venture to produce 1,050 MW of green energy. Adani Power has also won a bid for the bankrupt Coastal Energen and a stake in a media company.


The Hindenburg Report did turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the Adani Group. It helped the subsidiaries operating under the Adani Group acquire their lost assets and further strengthen their hold in their respective sectors. This offered our country with excellent economic growth and prosperity. The companies under the Adani Group were also able to attract new investors and continue their business operations with full force.
