Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani.
Adani Group listed entities crossed the market capitalisation of $100 billion collectively in the current financial year (FY22), conglomerate's chairman Gautam Adani said at the annual shareholders' meeting.
This was a first for a first-generation Indian company, Adani said in his address at the annual general meeting 2021, which was held virtually, on July 12.
"The performance of our listed entities propelled our portfolio to cross 100 billion dollars in market capitalisation in the very first week of this new financial year. This valuation milestone is a first for a first-generation Indian company," Adani said.
In FY21, the consolidated EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of Adani Group's listed portfolio was over Rs 32,000 crore, up 22 percent year-on-year (YoY).

"All Adani stocks generated returns over 100 percent–and our businesses ensured that we returned close to Rs 9,500 crore to you, our equity shareholders. This is a 166 percent increase in Profit After Tax on a year-on-year basis," Adani added.
During the last financial year, Adani Ports' business rose 25 percent, while the container segment market share grew to 41 percent, Adani noted.
Speaking about the group's growing airport portfolio, Adani told shareholders that the company had taken over operations of Ahmedabad, Lucknow and Mangalore airports, and signed concession agreements for Guwahati, Jaipur and Thiruvananthapuram.
