A video explaining the findings by Hindenburg Research and what lies ahead for the Adani Group

Findings of the investigation conducted by Hindenburg Research allege that Gautam Adani, founder and chairman of the group, has added over $100 billion to his net worth over the last three years, largely through stock price appreciation in the group’s seven key listed companies, which have spiked about 819% in the same period.

Hindenburg Research was founded in 2017 by Nate Anderson, a chartered financial analyst and a chartered alternative investment analyst.

It describes itself as a forensic financial research company and “activist short seller”. It focuses on analysing accounting irregularities, undisclosed transactions, illegal/unethical business or financial reporting practices. among other issues.

You may have read a bit about this already but a few questions may throw up a puzzle: why are banks commenting on their loan status to the Adani group? Why is LIC talking about its investments? Why is the Adani Group’s Current ratio a point of concern?

We also go deeper into what the Hindenburg report says, and what lies ahead for the group.
