Adani Total Gas, Adani Transmission is placed in the second phase of the ASM framework


Two other Adani Group entities – Adani Transmission and Adani Total Gas – will be placed under the second phase of the long-term additional supervisory measures (ASM) framework, according to leading exchanges National Stock Exchange (NSE) and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).

The move, which takes effect Monday, also comes close on the heels of the NSE placing Adani Enterprises, Adani Power and Adani Wilmar under the short-term ASM framework Stage – I from March 9.

The exchanges had also brought NDTV and Adani Green Energy under the long-term ASM framework Stage – II.

Interestingly, the exchanges announced on Monday that Adani Enterprises, the flagship of Adani Group, will exit the short-term ASM framework as of March 8.

Earlier in February, both the NSE and BSE had placed three Adani Group firms under the short-term ASM framework to curb volatility in the counters following a US-based short seller Hindenburg’s explosive report against the empire.

The parameters for shortlisting securities under ASM include high-low variation, client concentration, number of hits in the price range, price variation close to close, and price-to-earnings ratio.

The NSE and BSE said these companies meet the criteria for inclusion in additional Long Term (ASM) surveillance measures.

The applicable margin percentage is 100 percent and will apply from March 15, 2023 to all open positions from March 14, 2023 and new positions created from March 15, 2023. In addition, a lower price tier will apply from March 13, 2023, according to the exchanges.

Adani Group shares end with mixed feelings

On Friday, shares of the Adani Group ended on a mixed note amid a volatile trend in stock markets.

“Following the GQG deal in four Adani stocks, share prices of the group companies have mostly risen well. Concerns about margin calls related to sales have subsided as promoters have used the sale proceeds to meet the margin calls,” said Deepak Jasani, head of retail research at HDFC Securities.

Shares of Adani Enterprises plunged 2.90 percent to settle 1,896.45 on the BSE. The market valuation fell 6,458.11 crore to 2.16 lakh crore.

Shares of NDTV plummeted 4.90 percent to close 233.75, Adani Wilmar lost 4.47 percent to settle 453.30, and Ambuja Cements plunged 1.66 percent to finish at 378.35.

ACC fell 0.70 percent to settle 1,847.15.

Adani Transmission settled on 903.85, Adani Green Energy op 683.05 and Adani Total Gas op 950.15. The shares of these companies rose 5 percent each and reached their highest price ranges.

In addition, Adani Power rose 4.69 percent to settle 205.25 and Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) rose 0.09 percent to close on 697.85 on BSE.

“Shares of the Adani Group (including Ambuja, ACC and NDTV) have about recovered 1.7 lakh crore or approximately 23 percent of their combined market capitalization since March 1 to today,” said Manish Chowdhury, Head of Research at Stoxbox.
