Adani Group takes out Rs 20,000 crore FPO; Investors will be refunded

New Delhi: Adani Group has withdrawn its Rs 20,000 crore FPO (follow-on public offering). The new decision came after the company’s shares plunged to a 28 percent loss in the stock market on Wednesday. Company sources indicate that the FPO is being withdrawn due to the setback in the stock market. The company also said it will return the money to the investors.

The decision was made by the Adani Group Board of Directors. Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group, said that proceeding with the FPO does not seem ethical in the current situation and therefore the decision has been taken to withdraw the FPO.
