Bill Ackman says Hindenburg's Adani report 'highly credible'

Billionaire U.S. investor Bill Ackman has called short-seller Hindenburg Research's report on India's Adani Group "highly credible and extremely well researched."

Shares in seven listed group companies of Adani lost $10.73 billion in market capitalization in India on Wednesday after the U.S. short-seller released the report, which accused the conglomerate of improper use of offshore tax havens.

"Adani's response to Hindenburg is the same as Herbalife's response to our original 350-page presentation. Herbalife remains a pyramid scheme. I found the Hindenburg report highly credible and extremely well researched," Pershing Square boss Ackman said in a tweet on Thursday.

"We are not invested long or short in any of the Adani companies or Herbalife, nor have we done our own independent research," he added.
