Investors shrug off Hindenburg response, Adani Group stocks Adani Ent, Adani Ports trade flat

Posted by


Adani Group stocks: Most Adani Group stocks traded mixed in early deals on the BSE on Tuesday, July 2, after India’s capital market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), issued a show-cause notice to the US-based short-seller Hindenburg Research.

Hindenburg Research has said it received a show-cause notice from SEBI, which it thinks is “nonsense, concocted to serve a pre-ordained purpose: an attempt to silence and intimidate those who expose corruption and fraud perpetrated by the most powerful individuals in India.”

According to media reports, SEBI’s 46-page show-cause notice details Hindenburg’s relationship with an investor who took a short position in Adani. In response, Hindenburg stated that it had one investor partner and, after accounting for costs, it might “barely come out above breakeven” on its Adani short.

The short-seller reported earning $4.1 million in gross revenue from “gains related to Adani shorts from that investor relationship” and only $31,000 from its short position in Adani’s US bonds. The investor’s name was not disclosed, media reports further added.

Hindenburg Research alleged last year that the Adani Group was involved in stock manipulation tactics and accounting fraud schemes over the course of decades. This triggered a sharp selloff in the group’s stocks last year, making them lose nearly $150 billion.

The Adani Group denied the allegations in a 413-page response.

SEBI has been investigating the matter since last year. The Supreme Court of India has instructed the market regulator to complete its investigation by August 14 this year.

In January this year, India’s apex court said, in its response to public interest litigants, that SEBI would investigate the issue, and the case did not warrant a transfer of investigation to other agencies like a Special Investigating Team (SIT).

Most Adani Group stocks have risen significantly from their January 2023 low levels.
