Ambuja Cements news

Informing Indian stock market exchanges about the acquisition of My Home Group's cement grinding unit in Tamil Nadu, Ambuja Cements said, "Ambuja Cements, the cement and building material company of the diversified Adani Portfolio, signs definitive agreement to acquire My Home Group's 1.5 MTPA Cement Grinding Unit in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. The acquisition estimated at a total value of Rs. 413.75 Crores through internal accruals will aid in enhancing the coastal footprint across the southern markets of Tamil Nadu and Kerela. The total cement capacity of Adani Group stands at 78.9 MTPA."

This acquisition provides access to the southern market customers with an opportunity to experience and instill their trust in one of the most iconic and trusted brands – Ambuja Cement. Furthermore, the limited availability of limestone in Tamil Nadu presents a unique competitive advantage with the coastal movement of clinker from the Sanghipuram Plant ensuring cost-efficient operations.

In addition to the infrastructure and geographical advantages, Ambuja Cements will also inherit the existing dealer network and retain current employees, facilitating a smooth transition and enabling the rapid ramp-up of utilization."

Ambuja Cements share price target

Expecting a big upside in Ambuja Cements share price once the Indian stock market stabilizes, Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking said, "Ambuja Cements shares are looking positive on chart pattern. The stock may give sharp upside movement once the Indian stock market stabilizes after the current selling. For those who want to make a fresh entry in this Adani group share, this is the time to enter maintaining a stop loss at 585 apiece. The stock may touch 630 to 640 levels in the near-term."

On the suggestion to Ambuja Cements shareholders, Sumeet Bagadia said, "Existing shareholders of Ambuja Cements Ltd can continue holding the scrip for the short-term target of 640.
