    Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) had a great year in FY23, breaking records for revenue and EBITDA. The CEO, Mr. Karan Adani, credited the success to the company’s focus on diversification and transition to a transport utility model. APSEZ made significant investments totaling around Rs 27,000 Cr, including six major acquisitions. These investments were mostly funded through internal accruals and existing cash reserves, resulting in a decline in the gross debt-to-fixed asset ratio. APSEZ achieved its highest-ever port cargo volumes of 339 MMT in FY23, with two of its ports ranking in the top 10 in India based on their annual cargo volumes. The company also set a benchmark for turnaround times for ships, contributing to the overall improvement in turnaround times for major ports in India.

Two of APSEZ’s ports, Mundra and Krishnapatnam, secured positions among the top 10 ports in India based on their annual cargo volumes. Mundra remains the largest commercial port in India, handling 155 MMT of cargo (achieved in a record 355 days compared to 365 days in FY22) and maintaining its status as the leading container handling port with 6.64 Mn TEUs in FY23 (10% higher than its closest competitor).
