Why Are Adani Transmission Shares In Focus On Friday

Adani Transmission, set to announce its June quarter results on Monday, saw a spike in its share price on Friday on the back of a rebranding to Adani Green Solutions Limited.

What Happened? Adani Transmission informed the stock exchange that the name change became effective on July 27, following a “Certificate of Incorporation pursuant to a change of name” they received from the Ahmedabad registrar of companies.

The rebranding by the Adani Group doesn’t alter any stakeholder rights or liabilities. Adani Green Solutions must display its old name alongside its new one for two years, wherever its name appears, as per Section 12 of the Companies Act.

The conglomerate first announced the intended name change on May 29, saying it would require approval from shareholders, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, and other regulatory authorities.
