Adani: remote prospect - Carmichael status update 2017

Mounting debt across the Adani Group suggests that the Indian conglomerate’s Carmichael mine proposal for northeast Australia has become an increasingly precarious house of cards, according to new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA). The report—“Adani: Remote Prospect: Carmichael Status Update 2017”—notes that Adani Enterprise Ltd’s equity market capitalization has declined from over US$10 billion in 2015 to $1.9 billion today. Relative to net debt estimated at $2.5 billion, this capitalization is wholly insufficient to underwrite even the reduced $5 billion total project cost for Carmichael.
