Multibagger stock Inox Wind was locked in the 10 percent lower circuit at 147.65 after a 5 percent stake in the firm changed hands via a block deal at a floor price of 151, a discount of 8 percent from the previous close. The stock has rallied 460 percent in the last 1 year.

According to media reports, approximately 1.69 crore shares of the firm were traded, resulting in a turnover of 257.61 crore on the BSE.

However, it is suggested that promoter entity Inox Wind Energy was likely the seller, as it planned to divest up to 5 percent of its stake in the wind energy solutions provider through block deals today.

Additionally, other promoter groups held significant stakes: Aryavardhan Trading LLP with 5.23 percent, Inox Leasing and Finance Limited with 5.02 percent, and Devansh Trademart LLP with 4.19 percent.

Just in 2024 YTD, the scrip has advanced over 18 percent, giving positive returns in 2 of the 5 months so far. It has lost almost 6 percent in May after an over 20 percent gain in April. Before this it shed 13.5 percent in March, rose 26 percent in February and fell over 4 percent in January this year.

In the March quarter, the wind energy solutions provider reported a consolidated net profit of 36.7 crore, a significant turnaround from the net loss of 119 crore in the same quarter the previous year. Revenue more than doubled, reaching 527.7 crore. Further, EBITDA turned positive, reversing a 25 crore loss in the same period last year. The company's robust order book of approximately 2.7 GW provides substantial visibility for future revenue growth.

Commenting on the results, Kailash Tarachandani, CEO of Inox Wind, said, “Q4 has been a milestone quarter for the company as we successfully transitioned to 3 MW WTG supplies from 2 MW WTGs. Our EBITDA run rate in Q4 places us on a strong footing for FY25. Our debt levels have also come down drastically and we expect to be net debt free within H1 FY25. The macro tailwinds are reflected in the strong orderbook which stands at 2.7 GW today. Our other initiatives including ramping up operations, strengthening our balance sheet, coupled with our large order book, will translate into higher order execution from FY25 onwards, resulting in strong growth in profitability."

During the quarter, the company secured its single-largest wind project order of 1,500 MW from a leading power utility, significantly boosting its already robust order book of 2.7 GW. The company's strong order book currently holds a revenue potential of 18,000 crore.
