In August 2022, Adani Power agreed to take control of DB Power at an enterprise value of ₹70.2 billion ($850 million). The acquisition was approved by the country’s competition regulator a month later.

Amid the media reports that Adani Power had cancelled the acquisition of the coal plant, Adani Power informed both the stocks exchanges — BSE and NSE — on Tuesday that it was not going ahead with the acquisition. (ALSO READ: Adani against bid for stake in power trader PTC India: Report)

The Adani Group company and DB Power mutually agreed not to proceed with the transaction after a long-stop date expired on February 15. DB Power operates a 1.2-gigawatt coal power project in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh.

The DB Power buyout, which currently operates a 2×600 MW coal-fired power plant in Janjgir Champa district in Chhattisgarh, was expected to expand Adani Power’s offerings and operations in the thermal power sector in the state.
