Stake sale

On Friday, shares of all listed Adani Group companies rallied after the group sold minority stakes in four of its listed companies to US-based GQG Partners for ₹15,446 crore.

After taking a beating on the bourses following the report by US-based short seller Hindenburg Research, the group stocks have recovered significantly in the last few trading sessions.

The report had made a litany of allegations, including fraudulent transactions and share-price manipulation, against it.

The group has dismissed the charges as lies, saying it complies with all laws and disclosure requirements.
