New Delhi: Gautam Adani, the chairman of the Adani Group, has witnessed an extraordinary surge in wealth due to the remarkable rise in the shares of Adani Group companies. Let’s delve into the specifics:

  1. Share Price Surge:
  • Shares of eight Adani Group companies have experienced tremendous growth, contributing significantly to Adani’s net worth.
  • The rise in shares has led to a staggering increase of $4.56 billion in Gautam Adani’s wealth.

  • As a result, Gautam Adani has climbed to the 13th position on Bloomberg’s list of billionaires.
  1. Adani Group’s Resilience:
  • The Adani Group faced a significant setback following the Hindenburg report last year, which caused a massive fall in the company’s shares.
  • Despite this setback, the group has managed to regain its reputation within just 18 months.
  • Adani Group shares have surged threefold compared to February 2023, reaching record levels.
  1. Ambani vs. Adani: The Battle for the Top Spot:
  • Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, currently holds the 12th position in the Bloomberg Billionaires List.
  • His total wealth stands at an impressive $114 billion.
  • The gap between Adani and Ambani’s wealth is now $5 billion.
  • If Gautam Adani’s wealth continues to grow at this pace, he may soon surpass Mukesh Ambani as Asia’s richest man.
