Ahmedabad, 9 July 2023: Adani Group, which started the capital transformation journey for its core infrastructure portfolio in 2019, has raised over $9 billion in a short span of four years.

It has attracted investments across various listed entities – Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ), Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), Adani Transmission Limited (ATL), Adani Total Gas Limited (ATGL) and Adani Enterprises Limited (AEL).

The faith and confidence shown by these large global investors are proof of the underlying strength of the group’s businesses and the Adani Group’s commitment to the highest level of governance. Moreover, the success of the investment program also demonstrates the group’s ability to raise funds across companies at each stage and achieve the stated goals.
In the most recent instance, Adani family has raised $1.38 billion (Rs. 11,330 crore) through stake sale in the three portfolio companies—AEL, AGEL and ATL. This ensures higher capital availability at the group level, for growth as well as near-term
commitments of both debt and equity for the portfolio companies over the next 12-18 months. In addition, the three portfolio companies have also received board approval for primary issuances.
A similar stake-sale by the family in March 2023 aggregating to $1.87 billion (Rs. 15,446 crore), resulted in full prepayment of margin-linked, share-backed financing and created flexibility in a rising rate environment to equitize debt capital as and when due.
AEL is among the world’s largest business incubators, with focus on building infrastructure businesses. Its strategic priorities include the airport and green hydrogen business. Green hydrogen will enable decarbonization of industrial and mobility sectors, and support India’s push towards self-sufficiency in primary energy.
AGEL is the largest and the fastest growing renewable power company in India with operational portfolio of 8.1 GW. It envisions commissioning 45 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, while being the lowest cost generator of renewable power.
ATL is the largest private energy solutions player in India with presence in power transmission and distribution and an increasing focus on smart metering. Smart meters will enable electricity distribution companies to efficiently integrate and plan renewable energy into power grids and are essential tools for the decarbonization of the energy sector.
Adani is committed to raising capital to fulfill its 10-year roadmap of the transformative capital management program, which was formulated in 2016 to execute the plans for various portfolio companies.
