Special Seminar on “What went wrong with Satyam & Kingfisher”, September 27, 2017

Under the auspices of “Special Seminar Series”, a Special Lecture was delivered by Prof. J.P.Sharma, Director, IMS Ghaziabad, on “What went wrong with Satyam & Kingfisher” on September 27, 2017. Prof. Sharma, with his vast experience and innumerable publications on the related topic of “Corporate Governance”, engaged the PGDM I Year IMSians on an academically pertinent topic today.

Based on his own researches, Prof. Sharma explained, what could be the probable reasons for such collapses?. He deplored how company like Satyam, which received the prestigious “Golden Peacock Award” in 2008 collapsed in 2009?. The acceptance Rs. 7000 crore fraud by Mr. Ramalinga Raju on January 7, 2009 and subsequently takeover by Tech Mahindra in June 2009 infact Satyam now merged with Tech Mahindra. Prof. Sharma termed Satyam as a classic case of “bogus accounting”. In a similar vein, he also highlighted the failure of “Kingfisher Airlines” a classic case of mismanagement and not adhering to the tenets of Corporate Governance (CG) norms. In his view, the owner of Kingfisher -Mr. Vijay Mallya, a well educated man coming from a sound family behaved in an unethical manner. The Kingfisher Airlines was launched by Mallya in 2005, with initially 4 aircrafts, but emerged as second largest market share holder in Indian aviation by 2011, with its fleet reaching to 92. However, the company never declared profit.

Prof. Sharma elucidated several factors responsible to the downfall of “Kingfisher Airlines” including Mallya considered Kingfisher as his fiefdom; he withdrew substantial amount of money and diverted to several shell companies outside india and IPL; the CEO of the Kingfisher was paid exorbitant salary, ie second highest salary; Questionable role of Independent Directors/ Auditors/regulators/bankers; Lack of transparency prevailing at Kingfisher; Lack of professional management; ill timed merger with Air Deccan; Political funding; Lack of delegation of responsibilities; Defaulted on salary payments; pledging of shares by Vijay Mallya for getting loans from other banks. In all, based on facts and figures, the seminal lecture critically analyzed the “Rise & fall of Satyam & Kingfisher Airlines” and put forth a right perspective. Chairperson for “Special Seminar”- Dr. S. K. Dube expressed vote of thanks to the Director, Prof. J.P.Sharma for his ‘insightful lecture’ and keeping the flame of “Knowledge sharing” alive in IMS.
