Is the Jet rescue plan a hogwash?


The debt-ridden Jet Airways, which was once India’s largest private sector airline, has declared a massive quarterly loss again and its market share has fallen and it has become a fringe player. It is also dealing with a host of other problems and its promoter Naresh Goyal is not willing to let go of his company in favour of another investor. Its largest lender, SBI has come up with a revival plan that involves converting debt into equity and this will ensure that Naresh Goyal’s stake in the company comes down to 20% and he will lose effective control over it which has to be approved by shareholders at their next meeting. What is important, however, is that Naresh Goyal should not be given to managing the airline like in case of Kingfisher Airlines back in 2011and a new management must emerge to take control. All these factors must be clearly included in the restructuring plan.
