The fundraising comes after the Supreme Court’s decision that the Adani Group is not required to undergo additional investigations beyond the market regulator’s current scrutiny.

Domestic brokerage firm Motilal Oswal Financial Services raised target price on Adani Ports shares as it believes the company is well positioned to surpass volume guidance of FY24.

Adani Ports & SEZ reported 42% YoY growth in volumes for the third quarter ended December 2023, taking the total 9MFY24 volumes to 311 MMT, registering a 23% YoY growth on YTD basis.

With a monthly volume run-rate of 35 MMT, management has increased volume guidance to 400 MMT in FY24 from 370-390 MMT earlier. 

Motilal Oswal expect volumes for FY24 to even surpass the revised volume guidance of 400 MMT.

“Going forward, APSEZ targets to become India’s largest integrated transport utility and world’s largest private port company by 2030. APSEZ has a diversified cargo mix and is looking to increase cargo share of port on the east coast. The operational ramp-up at the recently acquired ports is expected to drive a 14% growth in cargo volumes over FY23-26. This would drive a revenue, EBITDA, PAT CAGR of 19%, 18%, 17% over FY23-26," Motilal Oswal said.

The brokerage firm reiterated its ‘Buy’ rating on the stock and raised the target price to 1,410 per share based on 16x FY26E EV/EBITDA.

With improvement in utilization levels of existing ports and improving global trade, the brokerage expects volume momentum to continue ahead. The company’s strong market leadership in the ports segment, focus on value-added areas such as logistics, and commitment to strategic acquisitions position it favorably.

At 10:00 am, Adani Ports shares were trading 3.47% higher at 1,209.25 apiece on the BSE.
