Credit Suisse has assigned zero value to the Adani stocks | So, so things are not at all well for India’s Adani group. Hindenburg's report has created turmoil in the invincible Adani empire. 

Switzerland’s investment banking company Credit Suisse has assigned zero value to the Adani bonds. That is to say, the Adani Group can’t get margin loans from the private banking clients of the above-mentioned Credit Sussies putting their company stocks are collateral. According to the Swiss lender’s private banking arm, the stocks have no value, and Adani Group can use other collaterals for the loan.

This assessment is of some entities under the Adani Group, not all. The entities are namely, Adani Ports & SEZ, Adani Green Energy, and Adani Electricity Mumbai. All the information is through Bloomberg report. 

According to Bloomberg, if a private bank ‘cuts lending value to zero’, clients typically have to top up with cash or another form of collateral, or else their ‘securities can be liquidated.’

Two European banks and Singapore-based banks are still issuing margin loans on the Adani stocks, amidst the concerns.

Interestingly, the equity research arm of Credit Suisse ‘upgraded Adani Ports to Outperform from neutral’ in a report published on Tuesday.
