Mint could not independently confirm the news.

The Adani Group's flagship company's FPO filing buzz has been taking rounds since last year. As per the latest news reports, the FPO is likely to be the biggest ever in the country.

The start of the current week was on a bearish note for Adani Enterprises' stock. On Monday, the company's share price finished at 3,619 apiece down by 102.40 or 2.75% on BSE. Its market cap stood over 4.12 lakh crore.

Adani Enterprises filed an offer letter with stock exchanges on Monday for a proposed 20,000 crore follow-on public offer (FPO), ET said quoting sources.

Meanwhile, the Indian Express newspaper reported that Adani Enterprises is expected to file FPO papers with Sebi either on Tuesday or Wednesday once the company gets the green signal from its merchant bankers. This report added that Adani's FPO will likely be launched before the Union Budget 2023-24.

On November 25 last year, as per regulatory filing on BSE, Adani Enterprises' board of directors approved the raising of funds through a further-public offering aggregating to 20,000 crore.

In its filing, Adani Enterprises board approved, the "raising of funds by way of a further public offering through a fresh issue of equity shares by the company aggregating up to 20,000 Crore."

Adani Enterprises' 20,000 crore FPO will likely be the largest further-on public offer in the country. Earlier, Yes Bank's 15,000 crore fundraising through FPO in 2020 — was the biggest ever issue in this basket.

In general terms, FPOs are called when an already listed company makes either a fresh issue of shares or convertible securities to the public or an offer for sale to the public.
