What led to the selloff

The selloff in Adani Group stocks resumed following a report by The Ken. The report raised questions on whether Gautam Adani-led ports-to-power conglomerate has actually repaid debt totalling $2.15 billion.

"Despite the Adani Group's claim of “complete" repayment of $2.15 billion in share-backed debt, regulatory filings show that banks have not released a significant portion of the promoters' shares held as collateral, indicating that the debt has not been fully paid off," according to the report.

Further, the report said that the Adani Group has only reduced the loan amount through partial repayment to avoid pledging more shares and any action against it by the lenders.

Following the group's prepayment announcement, banks have only released the pledged shares of Adani Ports & SEZ, per the report.

"The pledged shares of Adani Green and Adani Transmission have not been released by banks even a month after the loan repayment. This is highly unusual as pledged shares are usually released immediately after the borrower settles their debts," it added.
