"The Board has decided to actively work on a plan on exiting Company's investment in including divestment opportunities (expected to be concluded by March - June 2022)," said in notes to its second quarter results.

In August this year, had said its investment in a port in was not in violation of any sanction guidelines issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of Treasury.

"believes that it is not in violation of any sanction guidelines issued by OFAC, and has, therefore, applied to OFAC for a general license to operate the Port," it had said.

The project had run into controversy after it was reported that APSEZ chief executive Karan Adani had in July 2019 met Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, the army chief who led a coup against the elected government.

The Adani Group had previously said it had won the Yangon International Terminal project last year through a global competitive bid. The project requires USD 290 million investment.
