According to an exchange filing, the Adani Group has secured an investment of Rs 15,446 Crore ($1.87 billion) from US-based firm GQG Partners. The infusion came through a series of secondary block trade transactions in Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited, Adani Green Energy Limited, Adani Transmission Limited and Adani Enterprises Limited.

What this means for Adani's future

The investment has made GQG a key investor in the development and growth of critical Indian infrastructure. Jefferies India Private Limited acted as a Sole Broker for the transaction. Rajiv Jain, Chairman and CIO of GQG Partners, said: “I am excited to have initiated positions in the Adani companies. Adani companies own and operate some of the largest and most important infrastructure assets throughout India and around the world. Gautam Adani is widely regarded as among the best entrepreneurs of his generation."

Celebrating investor cofidence

Jugeshinder (Robbie) Singh, Group CFO of Adani Group, said: “We are delighted to complete this landmark transaction with GQG. We value GQG’s role as a strategic investor in our infrastructure and utility portfolio of sustainable energy, logistics and Energy Transition. This transaction marks the continued confidence of global investors in the governance, management practices and the growth of Adani Portfolio of companies.”
