Gautam Adani Is Falling From His Position Drastically On The Forbes Rich List: From 3rd To 38th Within A Month.

Businessman Gautam Adani is facing one of the most massive downturns of his life as his position as the third richest man is getting down and down. Gautam Adani, the billionaire owner of the ports-to-power giant Adani Group, has a net worth below the $40 billion threshold.

Gautam Adani’s ranking on the Forbes rich list has fallen dramatically from third to 38th place.

Because of the ongoing market crisis, listed companies in Adani’s self-titled corporate empire, Adani Group, have seen their value wiped away by billions of dollars.

With the release of the Hindenburg report, which had a negative impact on his group’s stock values, this abrupt transformation occurred.

Once the US-based short seller Hindenburg Research accused the conglomerate of engaging in stock manipulation and accounting fraud, Gautam Adani’s personal fortune and Adani Group shares started to decline.

The Adani Group was charged by the short seller with having a lot of debt, engaging in share pledging, and having a dangerous financial situation in addition to operating phony firms out of Mauritius and round-tripping money.

Vinod Adani, the brother of Gautam Adani, was also charged for allegedly running a network of offshore corporations for the purpose of facilitating fraud. The corporation has denied Hindenburg’s accusations and claimed that they lack veracity and were made with malicious purposes.

Additionally, it stated that Hindenburg did not conduct adequate research and that the information was disclosed in a selective, misleading, and incomplete manner.

Adani has strongly refuted all accusations, but according to BSE statistics, his fortune decreased by about $150 billion in less than a month after the publication of the Hindenburg report.

Gautam Adani’s current net worth, on the other hand, was estimated by Forbes’ real-time tracker to be $33.4 billion. Yet, this is a significant decline from his earlier estimated net worth, which was calculated prior to the release of the Hindenburg report.

Adani had an estimated $126.4 billion in wealth and was the third richest person in the world before the revelation and significant market reaction.

Much of Adani’s fortune comes from the Adani Group, which he owns a substantial piece of. The infrastructure sector, where the company operates in ports, airports, highways, and railroads, is where it makes the majority of its revenue.

Due to the market turbulence caused by Hindenburg’s accusations, the value of the listed firms in the Adani Group, and consequently Adani himself, might dramatically change over the course.

Due to the decreasing stock prices of Adani Group firms following the publication of the Hindenburg report, Gautam Adani’s net worth is currently less than half that of Mukesh Ambani, who is the richest person in India.

Adani Green, Adani Transmission, and Adani Total Gas Limited stocks, which have been under selling pressure for the past several trading days, were restrained in the lower circuit.

Aside from these, numerous other Adani Group companies’ stocks were trading in the red, including NDTV, ACC, Adani Power, Adani Enterprises, and Adani Port.

On the other side, Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in India, is moving up the list despite having recently lost his spot among the world’s top 10 billionaires. He currently holds the ninth spot with a net worth of USD 84 billion.

Adani lost the distinction of being India’s richest person after the Adani Group’s shares fell because of the Hindenburg report, and he regained it. Aside from that, Ambani still holds the record for being the richest person in Asia.

The wealth gap between Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), and Gautam Adani is growing as a result of the group companies’ stocks continuing to decline.

Adani trying to recover from the damage

The business tycoon is currently striving to rectify the damage the Hindenburg report created by placing a greater priority on cash preservation, debt repayment, reclaiming pledged shares, and decreasing capital investment plans given the fact that the issue has now reached a boiling point in the country.

The 60-year-old businessman postponed the Adani Group subsidiary Adani Power’s acquisition of DB Power for Rs 7,017 crore after the Hindenburg report’s release and canceled Adani Enterprise’s follow-on public offering (FPO) for Rs 20,000 crore.

With the founders of the company paying off some debt and speculators covering short positions, Adani Enterprises Ltd. soared, driving increases in the group’s stocks.

As compared to three of its competitors, the flagship’s shares increased by as much as 25% in early trading. Since US-based Hindenburg Research, the group’s market capitalization has decreased by $112 billion as a result of this.

The relief came as Gautam Adani and his family paid off debt totaling $1.11 billion in an effort to stop a selloff that had generated concerns about a contagion across India’s markets and economy.

In the midst of the upheaval, worries over the billionaire’s access to capital had grown, and the upcoming earnings reports from numerous group companies will allow investors to judge the health of those companies’ finances.

Seven of the ten stocks in the category saw positive traction. Although the stock fell by over half following the shocking report, Adani Enterprises had a rally.

At the conclusion of the previous week, the open interest ratio of put-to-call options on the flagship’s stock fell to a six-month low, briefly falling to approximately two standard deviations below the 24-month average. According to statistics provided sources using regression analysis, the shares have historically reversed whenever the ratio has crossed that threshold.

According to Hindenburg Research, a web of Adani family-controlled offshore shell companies in tax havens were used to assist money laundering, tax fraud, and corruption. The conglomerate described the claim as “bogus” and vowed to sue. Adani claimed that the company’s balance sheet is sound in a video lecture he gave last week.

Investors are closely observing the group’s actions; some believe much more work will be required to win back the market’s confidence.

Now the wait is to if the company can recover the damage and regain its lost value or go downwards with time.
