Adani Enterprises Ltd.

Company Background

Adani Enterprises, founded in 1988, is the flagship company of emerging Indian conglomerate Adani group. The group was built by Gautam Adani from India's western state of Gujarat. Today, the group is the country's top importer of coal and a leader in port development and electric power generation. Adani Enterprises presides over the group.


The group started out as an importer, growing sharply through its involvement with the development and management of Mundra port in Gujarat during the 1990s. Through running the port on its own, the amount of coal the group handled increased markedly. In 2008, the group acquired an interest in a coal mine in Indonesia and then another in Australia in 2011. At present, the group is expanding its power generation business through Adani Power, a subsidiary of Adani Enterprises, aggressively purchasing power stations in India.


Gautam Adani, the resourceful architect of the group, serves as Adani Enterprises chairman. Together with his family, he holds a stake of around 70% in the company. As Narendra Modi, former chief minister of Gujarat for over 10 years, has become India's prime minister, the Adani group is expected to grow further.

Business Summary

Adani Enterprises Ltd. engages in the business of coal and power trading. It operates through the following segments: Integrated Coal Management, Mining and Services, Solar Manufacturing, Shipping, Uncubating Business, and Others. The company was founded by Gautambhai Shantilal Adani in 1988 and is headquartered in Ahmedabad, India.
