Adani Enterprises jumped nearly 17 per cent to settle at ₹1,879.35 on the BSE on Friday after US boutique investment firm GQG Partners’ 15,446 investment in group stocks. During the day, it jumped 18.56 per cent to ₹1,905.

In the broader market, the BSE Sensex zoomed 899.62 points or 1.53 per cent to settle at 59,808.97 points.

All Adani stocks surged after GQG bought shares worth ₹15,446 crore in four of the group companies, the first major investment in the conglomerate since a short-seller’s critical report sparked a stock rout.

In an phone interview with Bloomberg, GQG Chairman Rajiv Jain said he first looked at Adani companies more than five years ago but decided they were not enough of a “bargain” at that time.

“The funding will assuage concerns about the Adani Group’s ability to raise funding for loan repayment,” said Aditya Mongia and Teena Virmani of Kotak Institutional Equities.

Adani Group will hold road shows this month in London, Dubai and several cities in the US, according to a Reuters report.

The meetings are scheduled for Dubai on 7 March, London on 8 March and multiple US locations between 9-15 March, the document revealed.

“Adani stocks rallied post the block deal in the secondary market in four of the group stocks on Thursday between the promoters and a US based investment firm. This improved the overall sentiment in the market and especially in the PSU banks,” Mitul Shah, Head of Research at Reliance Securities, said.

Adani Group companies ended in the positive territory on Wednesday and Thursday as well.
