The brokerage firm cited factors, while giving the tag, like track record as strong business incubator, 47% CAGR for Airport EBITDA over FY24-FY28E and balance sheet well-placed to take up rise in capex.

Adani Airports commands a substantial 23% share of passenger traffic in India, overseeing operations at eight airports, including the soon-to-be-commissioned Navi Mumbai Airport (NMIAL), according to Jefferies.

Additionally, Adani Airports stands to benefit from its lucrative non-aeronautical ventures, positioning it as a proxy for consumer activity. Recent adjustments to aeronautical tariffs at select airports further enhance its growth prospects. Moreover, the implementation of city-side land development projects and the forthcoming contributions from the soon-to-be-commissioned MIAL Airport add to its promising outlook.

“With new businesses of Airport and Green Hydrogen, we expect EBITDA to grow ~3x over FY24-FY28. AEL is riding on the strong Industry tailwinds in New Energy/ sustainability, Airports, Infra, digitalisation, and import substitution in India," Jefferies said in its report.

Moreover, the recent Supreme Court order had positive outcome in Adani group's year-long investigation related to short-seller report. While the SEBI is still completing its investigation, the order did suggest no further escalation of the case.
