In three days, shares of Bank of Baroda declined 10.93 percent, State Bank of India fell 9.42 percent and Life Insurance Corporation tanked 6.52 percent. The Hindenburg Research report came two days before Adani Enterprises’ Rs 20,000 crore Follow on Public Offer (FPO) that opened for subscription on January 27.
Meanwhile, Hindenburg Research has rejected Adani Group’s charge that its report was an attack on India, saying a “fraud” cannot be obfuscated by nationalism or a bloated response that ignored response to key allegations.
Commenting on the 413-page reply that Adani Group released late on Sunday evening in response to its report, Hindenburg said it believed India was a vibrant democracy and an emerging superpower with an exciting future and it was Adani Group which was holding it back through “systematic loot”.
Hindenburg stood by its last week’s report that said its two-year investigation found Adani Group “engaged in a brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud scheme over the course of decades”. Meanwhile, in the broader market, the 30-share BSE Sensex ended 169.51 points or 0.29 percent higher at 59,500.41 after volatile trading during the day.
