the jet imbroglio

The banks have been spared the blushes, at least temporarily, in the case of Jet Airways. After extending the deadline for submission of Expression of Interest (EoI), they have managed to attract several potential suitors. This reportedly includes several private equity firms as well as Abu Dhabi based Etihad Airways, which had 24 per cent stake but refused overtures from banks earlier to put in additional money. Naresh Goyal, the founder of the airline, who had been ejected last week by the lenders as a condition for lending emergency funds to the airline, submitted his last minute EoI for the stake on sale. Whether it is with a partner or on his own is not clear.The government, too, must be heaving a big sigh of relief. It did not want…

end of a safe haven

DEBT MUTUAL FUNDS have traditionally been a safe haven for risk-averse investors, but that seems to be changing now. In April, Kotak Mahindra Asset Management delayed the redemption of six of its fixed maturity plans (FMPs) while HDFC Mutual Fund also announced rolling over one of its FMPs because of exposure to the highly leveraged Essel group. With this, the financial stress in debt-laden companies seems to be spilling over to debt mutual funds. Just like Essel, which owns Zee, there could be other instances brewing as many promoters, starved of bank credit, have pledged their shareholding with mutual funds to raise money.With corporate profits contracting at an annualised rate of 1.8 per cent between FY14 and FY18, the leverage levels in companies have gone up. In case of default,…

rbi power stays

(ILLUSTRAIONBY RAJVERMA)THE SUPREME Court has given relief to stressed companies, including those in power and infrastructure, by blocking the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) controversial circular of February 12 last year. The circular, issued under Section 35AA, had asked banks to follow a six-month deadline to resolve a stressed company where there has been even a single day default. But the RBI’s power under the said Section stays in respect of specific defaults by specific debtors. The earlier circular was a blanket rule for all companies with over ₹2,000 crore exposure. The RBI will now likely issue a new circular or direction that can be used to restructure a loan. Banks need to be careful and act on time in case they see stress in a company.So, what happens to…

going overboard

A BIOPIC ON Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a digital series on him on Eros Now to characters of leading television shows talking about the various initiatives taken by the current government, the BJP has used all means to promote their leader. The Election Commission did stop the release of the biopic till the end of the elections. But, is this blatant publicity in accordance with the Election Commission’s moral code of conduct? The BJP would have surely found a grey area. But the bigger question is whether it will help the current government come back to power. One reason why the Vajpayee government’s India Shinning campaign failed was because it was overdone. TV, print and radio platforms were blasted with 52 different ads boasting about the then PM Atal Bihari…
