"Investors are most negatively impacted. Investors today demand clarity, and if you remain quiet, the investors will lose faith in the market. It is crucial for the Adani Group to convey the precise reason behind the stock price decline. The stocks of Adani Group companies are moving in lower circuits and is nearly down 5% daily. Request should be made to the group and also to the regulator to clarify. It will help in stabilising the free fall in stock price, address those serious concerns and restore the confidence of investors," said Deven Choksey, managing director at KR Choksey.
Further, according to a Bloomberg report, the Adani Group will commence its meetings with fixed-income investors in Asia this week, in an attempt to limit the fallout from claims of accounting fraud and stock manipulation made by shortseller Hindenburg Research.
"About a dozen global banks will help host the investor meetings at Singapore’s Capitol Kempinski hotel Monday. The conglomerate backed by billionaire Gautam Adani will then hold meetings in Hong Kong at the Barclays Plc office on Tuesday and Wednesday. Due to attend are group chief financial officer Jugeshinder Singh and corporate finance head Anupam Misra," said the report.
