The Gautam Adani-Led Group has eclipsed Tatas as India’s most valuable conglomerate.
The Adani group of companies has the highest market value in India with a total market capitalization on the BSE of over 22 lakh crore.
With a total market capitalization on the BSE of over 22 lakh crore, the Adani group of companies has surpassed the Tata-led conglomerate to become the most valuable in India.
Based on Friday’s closing, the market valuation of the nine Adani Group companies that are listed on the BSE, including the recently acquired Ambuja Cement and ACC LTD, was more than 22 lakh crore, surpassing the market valuation of 27 Tata Group companies with a market cap of more than 20 lakh crore.
The nine-company Mukesh Ambani group ranked third on the list with a market value of more than 17 lakh crore.
Gautam Adani surpassed Jeff Bezos and rose to the third position on the Forbes list of the world’s richest individuals, behind Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault of Louis Vitton, as a result of a bigger growth in the value of the Adani shares.
Although Mr Adani, who presently has a net valuation of $154.7 billion, briefly overtook Bernard Arnault of Louis Vitton, a slaughter in domestic stocks on Friday forced him back to No. 3 on Forbes’ Real-Time Billionaires List.
This is mainly because the recent market crisis and predictions for a very aggressive Federal Reserve in response to high inflation readings caused the money of American millionaires to lose value.
Elon Musk continues to hold the title of the world’s richest person with a net worth of $273.5 billion. With the shares of several of the companies he controls rising dramatically, Gautam Adani’s fortune has increased more as a result of a surge in stock value than as a result of an improvement in fundamentals like earnings and growth.
But by almost every measure, Gautam Adani’s rise has been nothing short of extraordinary. He first attained the title of Asia’s richest man. Then, his net worth eclipsed that of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Only Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault of Louis Vuitton are wealthier than he is right now.
While one or two huge corporations account for the majority of Tatas and Reliance’s market capitalization, the market valuation of the Adani Group of companies is more evenly distributed across enterprises.
The first-generation entrepreneur of the Adani Group, which includes seven publicly traded companies in the infrastructure, mining, energy, and other sectors, is run by Mr Adani.
Due to a swift diversification drive, Mr Adani’s massive, largely fossil fuel-fueled company has entered several new businesses both inside and outside of India, and he is attempting to reinvent himself for the global stage.
Over the past five years, Adani Enterprises has made large investments in several developing industries, including data centres, airports, cement, copper refining, green hydrogen, petrochemical refining, roads, and solar cell manufacturing.
Adani Group became the second-largest cement producer in the country on Friday after completing its acquisition of Ambuja Cements and ACC. Despite having no past cement manufacturing activities, the group asserted that the companies were a good fit given its ports and logistics, energy, and real estate industries.
Adani Group has grand plans to expand its airport, green hydrogen, and communications sectors. It also pledged to invest $70 billion in infrastructure for renewable energy. Which will be increased their growth and income in the upcoming years. Adani Group is progressing to maintain their position in the world.
According to a different report, Asia’s richest man Adani Wilmar is doubling down on expanding the food activities of his company by looking for domestic and international acquisition possibilities.
RIL and TCS trade for less than 30 times price-to-earnings (PE), in contrast. This is true even though the combined top line of the listed Tata Group companies and the annual sales of the seven Adani enterprises are far smaller than those of RIL.
With Ambuja Cements and ACC excluded, the seven publicly traded Adani Group firms reported combined revenues of Rs. 2.02 trillion and net earnings of Rs. 13,423 crores in FY22.
Comparatively, the combined consolidated revenues and net profit for the listed firms of the Tata Group in FY22 were Rs. 8.6 trillion and Rs. 74,523 crore, respectively. RIL, on the other hand, posted combined sales of 7.4 trillion rupees and a net profit of 60,705 crores during the previous fiscal year.
For CY2021, Ambuja and ACC’s total revenues and net profits were Rs 29,900 crore and Rs 2,780 crore, respectively. In FY23, their acquisition is anticipated to increase Adani Group’s total earnings by 15% to 20%.
The group’s 60-year-old founder, Gautam Adani, began his commercial career as a dealer in Ahmedabad and quickly expanded into a variety of industries. The first significant infrastructure undertaking by the group was a seaport in Gujarat’s Mundra.
