(Reuters) – India’s Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone, a subsidiary of the beleaguered Adani Group, said on Tuesday it would pay $130 million of its debt early, after bidding for $413 million for early repayment.

Adani Ports tendered up to $130 million of a 3.375% dollar-denominated bond due 2024 late last month, as it seeks to boost investor confidence after the group’s shares plunged earlier this year by a short-seller report. in the United States.
