On Sunday, embattled Adani Group said it has repaid loans aggregating USD 2.65 billion to complete a prepayment programme ahead of the March 31 deadline to cut overall leverage in an attempt to win back investor trust, post a damning report of a US short seller.
Adani group stocks ended on a mixed note on Friday amid a volatile trend in the equity markets. At close, five of the group companies were in the red while the rest were in green territory.
After taking a beating on the bourses, following the report by US-based short seller Hindenburg Research, the group stocks have recovered significantly in the last few trading sessions.
The report had made a litany of allegations, including fraudulent transactions and share-price manipulation, against it.
The group has dismissed the charges as lies, saying it complies with all laws and disclosure requirements.
