  • Six Adani Group firms, including Adani Enterprises and Adani Ports, face SEBI inquiries for alleged breaches in related party transactions and listing regulations.
  • SEBI’s scrutiny follows allegations raised by US-based Hindenburg Research, questioning over 6,000 related party transactions within the Adani Group.
  • The firms have responded to SEBI notices, with auditors expressing caution over potential implications on future financial statements.

Six Adani Group firms, including Adani Enterprises and Adani Ports, are under scrutiny by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for alleged breaches in related party transactions and listing regulations. The inquiries stem from regulatory concerns raised after US-based Hindenburg Research questioned the appropriateness of over 6,000 related party transactions within the conglomerate. SEBI’s investigations follow an August report to the Supreme Court, identifying 13 specific related party transactions for further examination.

In response to SEBI’s show cause notices, the firms have engaged legal counsel and provided explanations, yet auditors have expressed caution over potential implications on future financial statements. While SEBI’s scrutiny isn’t an indictment, it raises questions about corporate governance and regulatory compliance within the Adani Group. The ongoing investigations underscore the importance of transparency and adherence to market regulations in maintaining investor trust and market integrity.
