In the past two months, Adani Power has outperformed the market by zooming 135% from Rs 23.85 on September 28, 2018. In comparison, the S&P BSE Sensex was down 0.53% during the same period.
“We are pleased to note the progress in ensuring sustainable operations of the Mundra power plant, with the Hon’ble Supreme Court permitting the Gujarat Government to approach the CERC for implementation of recommendations made by the High Power Committee,” Gautam Adani, chairman, Adani Power said while announcing September quarter (Q2FY19) results on October 31.
“We have also received other important Regulatory and judicial approvals for compensation claims of our projects at Tiroda and Kawai. With the quick ramp-up of coal supplies under SHAKTI, we firmly believe that these developments will help the plants achieve cash flow certainty and improvement in long-term profitability. We remain committed to our goal of catering to India’s growing power demand and contributing significantly to its economic growth,” the statement added.
