The Adani Group under Regulatory Scrutiny: Latest Updates on the Financial Controversy

The Adani Group Expelled From The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices

The recent damning report by Hindenburg Research about the Adani Group has sparked widespread concern in the financial community. The report cites accounting malpractices in the company’s economic releases, harming the company’s reputation and financial performance.

The situation has taken a turn for the worse as the Adani Group has now been removed from the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are widely recognized as a benchmark for sustainable investing, and the removal of the Adani Group is a significant blow to the company’s image.

It is important to note that the removal from the indices does not guarantee a decrease in the company’s financial performance. Still, it does raise questions about the company’s commitment to sustainability and ethical practices.

Adani Companies Move Into ASM Framework

In light of the recent developments, the Indian Securities Agency has taken measures to protect investors by moving companies under the Adani Group into the ASM framework. This move is designed to ensure that these companies are subjected to increased regulatory oversight and scrutiny.

ASM, or the Additional Surveillance Measure framework, is a regulatory mechanism implemented by the Indian Securities Agency. It is used to monitor companies that exhibit increased risk to investors and the financial system.

The companies under the ASM framework are subjected to heightened surveillance and regulatory oversight, including frequent disclosures and inspections.

The implementation of the ASM framework for the companies under the Adani Group is a significant development, as it signals the Indian Securities Agency’s commitment to protecting investors and ensuring the stability of the financial system. Either way, it remains to be seen how the companies will respond to the increased regulatory scrutiny and whether it will help restore investor confidence in the Adani Group.

SEBI to Investigate the Adani Group

The country’s Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has announced that it will launch a full investigation into the shares crash of the Adani Group. This investigation will examine the possible irregularities in the company’s recent Follow-on Public Offer (FPO).

SEBI will also examine the relationship between the Adani Group and the banks to measure exposure, as many banks have significant leverage with the group. The investigation aims to ensure that investors are protected and that the financial system remains stable.

In response to the announcement of the investigation, a representative from the Adani Group stated that its EBITDA or Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization levels are in a good place, and its cash flow is stable. The company is focused on the long term and is preparing to find a way forward.
