Adani Ent gets 2 Sebi notices over related party deals

MUMBAI: Adani Enterprises on Thursday said that it had received two show cause notices from markets regulator Sebi during the March quarter.
The notices alleged “non-compliance of provisions of the Listing Agreement and LODR (Listing Obligation and Disclosure Requirement) Regulations pertaining to related party transactions in respect of certain transactions with third parties and validity of peer review certificates of statutory auditors with respect to earlier years”.
The management believes that there is “no material consequential effect of the show cause notices to relevant financial statements”. The company also believed there was no such non-compliance with laws and regulations, it said in a regulatory filing on the exchanges.
In Jan 2023, US-based short seller Hindenburg Research had alleged serious corporate governance and other issues within Adani Group companies. As a result, over the next five weeks, the group’s stocks were on a free fall, wiping out about 65% of the group’s total market value. Following those allegations a case was also filed in the SC which then had asked Sebi to investigate the allegations made in the Hindenburg report. In Jan this year, the SC had passed its order in the investigation and had asked Sebi to complete two of the 24 issues it was looking into and were still incomplete then.
Q4 profit falls 39% to ₹449cr
Adani Enterprises said its consolidated net profit for the March quarter dropped 39% to Rs 449 crore. This drop was due to one-time past airport dues and commercial mining losses.
