Adani Green Energy, the renewable energy division of the Adani Group, plans to raise ₹12,300 crore by selling shares to qualified institutional investors.

What Happened? After a board meeting on July 6, Adani Green Energy made a statement announcing a move that is expected to lessen worries over the group’s ability to pay off its debts and reinforce investor confidence. The initiative also aims to aid the group’s transition from coal to green energy.

The details in Adani Green’s filing to the stock exchanges reveal plans to issue equity shares and/or other eligible securities worth up to ₹12,300 crore, pending necessary approvals.
