“India is on the cusp of becoming a global leader in renewable energy and Adani Green is in the vanguard of this revolution,” said its chairman Gautam Adani.
“This investment by the Adani family underscores our commitment… to an equitable energy transition where we phase down traditional power sources while simultaneously phasing up green, affordable alternatives to fuel our accelerating growth and development plans.”
Besides Gautam, his brother Rajesh Adani and his nephew Sagar Adani (Rajesh’s son) represent the family on the board of the renewables company.
The company will issue just over 6.3 crore warrants to Ardour Investment Holding and Adani Properties — entities that belong to the promoter group — and each warrant will be convertible into one equity share of Adani Green over 18 months from the allotment date, its notice to shareholders said. Currently, Adani Properties and Ardour Investment do not hold any shares of Adani Green, regulatory filings showed.
Adani Green, the notice said, intends to use half of the warrant proceeds of Rs 9,350 crore to repay loans and bonds to the tune of Rs 4,675 crore. It will use the balance to invest in renewable projects (Rs 2,338 crore) and for its ongoing expenses (Rs 2,337 crore).
