Stock Market Today: Adani Group Down; Nifty, Sensex & More

Shares of the troubled firm, Adani Enterprises led by Indian tycoon Gautam Adani were repeatedly suspended on Friday, the 3rd of February, 2023 in the stock market today. This was all due to the Hindenburg Report published by Hindenburg Research that levied allegations on the company of accounting fraud.

By funneling money into its units through offshore tax havens, Adani has artificially boosted its share prices, according to Hindenburg Research. The company mentioned,

“This brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud scheme" is "the largest con in corporate history."

Late Wednesday, February 1, Adani cancelled a $2.5 billion stock sale that was meant to aid in reducing the debt levels. It was also meant to restore confidence as well as broaden its shareholder base.
