Adani Group’s portfolio posted highest ever EBITDA growth in H1FY24, crossing INR 43,000 cr

The Adani Group portfolio has experienced massive growth despite facing various challenges and microeconomic disruptions from the opposition related to rumours of Adani corruption. It could withstand the test of time and recover from strife and turmoil. In the last few months, the Group experienced substantial cash flow from the subsidiaries operating under it. This extensive cash flow is a cumulative effort of the airports, green hydrogen projects, and other assets that have emerged strongly under the leadership of Gautam Adani. The portfolio level EBITDA reached INR 43,688 crore, up 47% YoY. This is the highest recorded financial growth acquired by any conglomerate as diversified as the Adani Group over the last five years.

How did the Adani Group Achieve Excellent Financial Growth in H1 FY24?

The Adani Group released its half-yearly financial performance update on 11th December 2023 when all eyes were on it. The report highlighted the highest-ever growth in H1FY24. The integrated business portfolio mainly focuses on enhancing infrastructural development activities in India and has a strong presence across various business sectors. Almost 86% of the recorded EBITDA comes from infrastructure business units. The substantial cash flow from the different entities under the conglomerate has led to sustainable future growth for the Group. It is expected that the operations of the Group will continue to improve, increasing the profitability and the cash flow. The growth rate will also continue to increase steeply in the upcoming months. The Group has decided to invest 7 lakh crores to become the largest infrastructure player in India.

The recent growth in the emerging sectors of the Adani Group has contributed to 8% of the portfolio EBITDA, reported Jugeshinder Robbie Singh, the CFO and one of the senior members of the Adani Group. In the first half of the fiscal year, the companies operating under the leadership of Gautam Adani showed robust financial performance, ultimately leading to an increased cash flow. They were also able to strengthen their credit profile and acquire financial stability. The portfolio’s growth has outpaced the five-year CARG trajectory of 26.3% of the Adani Group. This growth opens up the subsidiaries to new opportunities. In fact, the H1 FY24 EBITDA crossed the whole year EBITDA of FY22.

The overall growth was driven by an extraordinary performance of the core infrastructure business of the Adani Group, which grew by 52% YoY to INR 37,379 crores. The businesses include the utility sector driven by Adani Energy Solutions, Adani Green Energy, Adani Power, and Adani Total Gas, the transport sector operated by Adani Ports and SEZ, and other infrastructure businesses incubated by Adani Enterprises. This includes airports, roads, and green hydrogen-integrated manufacturing projects. This expansion highlights the focused investments made by the conglomerate in infrastructural development, which has yielded significant results. Although the conglomerate received a setback when accusations of Adani corruption were made, it recovered from it and returned to its original state of glory.
