Adani Enterprises, a diversified conglomerate in India that operates in various business areas from airports to renewable energy, has stated it will pour around Rs 80,000 crore ($10.8 billion) into its businesses come FY 2024-25. Healing the majority of it will be on new ventures in the energy and airports sectors. 

Bulk of the planned capital expenditure for FY25 according to Saurabh Shah who is the Deputy Chief Financial Officer of Adani Enterprises will be invested in Adani New Industries Ltd (ANIL) and airport business with both likely getting about Rs 50,000 crore from capex. ANIL is a solar power company that turns sunlight into electricity and green hydrogen. The remaining part of funds shall be distributed among roads/businesses involving PVC products newly established as well as a data center system.                                                                                                                                                                                  Adani Group comprises of seven functioning airports in India and has a proposal of setting up an airport in Navi Mumbai, which is expected to be finished by end of FY25. In the process including expanding their renewable energy portfolio they will be producing wafers and ingots for making solar cells and modules in their Gujarat factory at a higher pace.

When asked about the company’s plans, a senior executive officer at Adani Enterprises said, “For ourselves we have elaborated a detailed roadmap till FY25, which should place us on top of the global renewable entities list as well as meet our carbon-neutral objectives. The increased deployment shall enable us to move faster into renewables in India; it will entail job opportunities creation for many people as well.”

One of the recent results of the company was a YoY decrease in net profit by 38% to Rs 451 crore ($61 million) in the quarter ended March 2024, which was mostly caused by appreciation of material costs and exceptional expenditures. Adani Enterprises’ revenue from operations grew by one per cent YoY amounting to Rs 29,180 crore ($3.9 billion). 

Their leaders despite all these challenges still have a positive outlook for the future and are very focused on achieving their objectives. “We are still committed to creating value for our shareholders while we also continue giving way for long-term growth as well as sustainable development,” explains the spokesperson.

Market has visibly digested and appreciated Adani Enterprises’ pronouncement. Equity crawled to a close at Rs 2,799.20 ($38) on Friday exhibiting a daily gain of over 1.17%. The company’s total market capitalization was standing around Rs 3,200 Bln ($43B), therefore it was considered as the priciest member of the Adani Group. 

Through announced investments, Adani clearly shows his intention to transform the current shape of his business into a more diversified and expanded one in the coming years. Those plans are in consonance with the vision of the company as being the largest renewable energy enterprise in the world eventually and that they can achieve their objective of having net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. And through increasing its energy and infrastructure sectors, Adani Enterprises is gradually becoming an integral part of India’s new economic landscape.
