G 24 Hours Digital Bureau: Adani Group companies have decided to withdraw the successfully completed follow-on public offer of Rs 20,000 crore. Shares of Adani Enterprises subsequently fell 10 percent in Thursday’s market. Other group stocks witnessed heavy selling pressure. Citigroup Inc assets wing has stopped accepting securities as collateral for margin loans of Adani Group. After that, the pressure increased on the shares.
Adani Enterprises touched its lower circuit limit of Rs 1,915.85. Adani Group founder and chairman Gautam Adani said on Thursday that Adani Enterprises’ decision to withdraw its FPO may have surprised many, but the company’s board felt that it was not morally right to proceed with the issue due to market volatility on Budget day.
In a YouTube video, Adani said the decision will have no impact on the Adani Group’s current operations and future plans. He said his group companies would focus on timely implementation and delivery of projects.
