The deal is reportedly valued at an enterprise value of Rs 6,000 crore ($72.9 million) for Sanghi Industries. Recent media reports revealed that Adani Group’s company was among the top contenders in the race to buy Sanghi Industries.

Adani Group’s Focus on Cement Sector
While Adani Group refrained from responding to media queries, Sanghi Cement declined to comment on the potential deal. Sanghi Industries is recognized as one of the leading cement manufacturers in Gujarat, with an annual capacity to produce 6.1 million tonnes of cement, according to information available on its website. As Adani Group continues to expand its market presence in the cement sector, this potential acquisition could further solidify its position as a significant player in the industry.
