As of December 31, 2023, none of the three aforementioned fund houses was listed in the public ownership data on the BSE, suggesting that each held a stake of less than 1 percent in the firm. 

According to the latest shareholding pattern, the government retained a majority ownership stake of 75 percent in the company, while foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) held a modest ownership share of 1.88 percent. This indicates a significant level of government control and a relatively low level of foreign investment in the company. 

Coming onto the company’s financial statements, the revenue decreased by 30 percent from Rs. 1,777 crores during the September quarter to Rs. 1,253 crores in the December quarter. On a contrasting note, the net profits increased by 18 percent from Rs. 285 crores to Rs. 336 crores during the same timeframe. 

Additionally, as of December 31, 2023, the outstanding loan amount of IREDA stood at Rs. 50,580 crores, marking an increase from Rs. 37,888 crores recorded as of December 2022. This indicates a significant rise in the loan portfolio of IREDA within the specified period. 

Although experiencing short-term negative returns, the stocks have exhibited a multibagger growth of 165 percent over the past six months. For instance, an investment of Rs. 1 lakh in these shares half a year ago would now amount to Rs. 2.65 lakhs. 

Headquartered in New Delhi, Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency was incorporated in 1987. It is a Mini Ratna government enterprise in the business of promoting, developing, and extending financial assistance for new and renewable energy (RE) projects, and energy efficiency and conservation (EEC) projects.
