AHMEDABAD: The follow-on public offer (FPO) issued by Adani Enterprises has been fully subscribed on the last day. Data showed the demand for the FPO was led by non-institutional investors, and they subscribed to the shares 3.26 times. The portion for institutional investors was also oversubscribed.

Adani Enterprises had filed a red herring prospectus with the markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for the Rs 20,000 crore follow-on public offer (FPO), the largest ever in India. A follow-on public offering (FPO) is the issuance of shares to investors by a company listed on a stock exchange after its initial public offerings.

There were concerns that the FPO may not receive a strong response from investors amid a report by the US-based Hindenburg Research that surfaced on January 24, which claimed that the Adani Group had weak business fundamentals among others.

The US-based firm, in its report, raised concerns about shares of Adani group companies having a possibility of declining from their current levels owing to high valuations. In response, Adani Group on Sunday said the recent report by Hindenburg Research was not an attack on any specific company, but a “calculated attack” on India, its growth story and ambitions. It added that the report was “nothing but a lie”.

On Monday, an Abu Dhabi-based diversified conglomerate, International Holding Company, announced that it will invest about $400 million (AED 1.4 billion) into the Adani Enterprises’ follow-on public offer (FPO) through its subsidiary Green Transmission Investment Holding RSC Ltd.

“Our interest in Adani Group is driven by our confidence and belief in the fundamentals of Adani Enterprises Ltd. We see a strong potential for growth from a long-term perspective and added value to our shareholders”, said Syed Basar Shueb, Chief Executive Officer, IHC. (ANI)
