Adani Group Reportedly Secures ₹24,755 Crore From Sovereign Wealth Fund

Adani Group has secured a $3 billion (₹24,754.8 crore) loan from a sovereign wealth fund, per a Reuters report.

What Happened? A report citing two sources close to the embattled conglomerate said that the group has told creditors that it has secured a loan, which could be upsized to $5 billion (₹41,249.35 crore).

The sources referred to a memo that was circulated to participants as highlights of a three-day investor roadshow ending on Wednesday. The identity of the sovereign wealth fund was not disclosed in the memo, the report added.

The development arrives after Adani Group revealed on Feb. 28 that it plans to prepay or repay share-backed loans worth between $690-790 million (₹5,692 – ₹6,516 crore) by end of March 2023.

Last week, the Adani Group's Adani Ports & SEZ paid ₹1,500 crore loan and promised to repay more as the embattled conglomerate mapped a comeback strategy.
