New Delhi:

Adani Group stocks touched a meteoric high today, rising up to 20 per cent, after news agency Bloomberg reported that a US government agency found short seller Hindenburg Research's allegations against the Adani Group "irrelevant".

Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL) also announced a follow-on funding of $1.36 billion to boost its construction financing framework to $3 billion, backed by a consortium of top international banks.

The Supreme Court on November 24 had also asked tough questions against petitioners in the Hindenburg allegations and a matter linked to a report by a George Soros-funded group that targeted the Adani Group.

Bloomberg quoted a senior US official saying the International Development Finance Corp (DFC) decided the Hindenburg allegations were irrelevant after doing due diligence before allowing $553 million for the conglomerate's container terminal project in Sri Lanka. The DFC is a US government agency that invests in development projects mostly in emerging economies.

Shares of the flagship firm Adani Enterprises Ltd (AEL) rose over 18 per cent to Rs 2,995.80 today, before settling at Rs 2,960.10. AEL's total market capitalisation reached the Rs 3.40 lakh crore mark once again, and the stock surged about 200 per cent from its 52-week lows.

The US agency's observation on the Hindenburg allegations strengthens the Adani Group's pushback against the short-seller. Investors also see the Adani Group stocks performance today as proof that the storm that Hindenburg brought is long gone.
