New Delhi: State-owned Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) has recouped losses on its investment in Adani Group stocks after shares of the apple-to-airport conglomerate rose for the third consecutive session. LIC holds shares in seven out of the 10 listed companies of the Adani Group. The shareholding ranges from 1.28 percent in Adani Green Energy Ltd to 9.14 percent in Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd, according to information available on stock exchanges.
Against a purchase price of Rs 30,127 crore, the value of shares LIC held in the Adani Group dropped to Rs 29,893.13 crore on February 24. But the rally in the Adani Group stocks after investors poured in money has reversed the situation.
The value of LIC's shareholding in the Adani Group stocks has risen by about Rs 9,000 crore since and at Friday's closing price, it stands at Rs 39,068.34 crore, according to information available on the stock exchanges. The fall in Adani Group stocks had led to some questioning LIC's investment decision.
