The stock rose today after the company, in an exchange filing, posted a clarification on the disclosure made by SBICAP Trustee Company Ltd. (SBICAP Trustee) in the matter of encumbrance over shares of Suzlon Energy by the promoters.
"SBICAP Trustee has recently reported the creation of encumbrance over the shares held by the promoters in the company in favour of SBICAP Trustee in terms of Regulation 29(2) of Securities and Exchange Board of India (Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers) Regulations, 2011. Please note that, inadvertently; SBICAP Trustee had mentioned the name of ‘Adani Green Energy Limited’ as the ‘target company’ in its reporting, instead of ‘Suzlon Energy Limited’. The said error has since been rectified by SBICAP Trustee," says the company.
The company says encumbrance has been created by the promoters of the company in favour of SBICAP Trustee, only for securing the obligations of the STG towards the REC-led consortium and not in anybody else's favour. There is no existing or new pledge by the promoters in favour of Adani Green Energy Ltd, says the company.
The Pune-based company in its quarterly financial report last month had reported a healthier balance sheet.

Its EBITDA was ₹214 crore in Q1 FY23 and EBITDA margin stood at 15.6%.
The company had posted a multi-fold rise in its net profit at ₹2,432.55 crore for the quarter on exceptional gains. However, the consolidated profit for Q1 FY23 stood at ₹3.64 crore.
