Jet Airways Saga

Revival hopes of debt laden Jet Airways faded further as Russian fund Treasury RA Creator is on the verge of being disqualified.

Reports state that Treasury RA Creator did not provide enough information about itself to Jet Airways' insolvency resolution professional nor did it deposit the mandatory amount required to seek access to the airline's data, making it ineligible to bid.

This leaves South America's Synergy Group as the sole suitor for the grounded airline. Lenders are still conducting due diligence on Synergy Group Corporation after it showed interest in investing in Jet Airways.

The company, which owns a majority stake in Colombian carrier Avianca Holdings, the second-largest airline in South America, is looking for a majority stake.

As per the FDI regulations, a foreign airline can own up to 49% stake in an Indian carrier but cannot have controlling rights. Synergy Group is yet to approach an Indian entity to partner it in jointly bidding for Jet Airways.

Note that Jet Airways suspended operations in April due to a severe cash crunch. A consortium of 26 banks led by the State Bank of India has approached the National Company Law Tribunal to recover dues of more than Rs 85 billion.

How this all pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space.

Global Stock Market Drivers

Asian stocks were lower on Tuesday, weighed by Chinese markets after mainland factory-gate prices shrank at their fastest pace in three years.

China's producer price index fell 0.8% in August year-on-year, its sharpest decline since August 2016 as flagging demand at home and abroad forced some businesses to slash prices.

In currency markets, the pound was trading near a six-week high of US$ 1.2385 at the time of writing, after a law came into force demanding that Prime Minister Boris Johnson delay Britain's departure from the European Union unless he can strike a divorce deal.

Meanwhile, the Japanese yen fell to a five-week low against the US$ as a rebound in government bond yields prompted some investors to cut back on bearish bets on the global economy.

Germany's 30-year bond yield rose into positive territory for the first time in more than a month. Benchmark US Treasury yields rose to three-week highs as investors ventured into riskier assets.

As per the economic schedule released by Vijay Bhambwani, editor of Weekly Cash Alerts, here are the important events to look forward to this week:

  • USA's Crude Oil Inventory and PPI data for August Month-on-Month
  • Australia's Consumer Sentiments data
  • India's M3 Money Supply

Oil Rises amid Expectations of Output Cuts

Oil futures rose for the fifth day, rising to their highest level in almost six weeks on optimism that OPEC and other producing countries may agree to extend output cuts to support prices.

Prince Abdulaziz, a long-time member of the Saudi delegation to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), said the pillars of Saudi Arabia's policy would not change and a global deal to cut oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day would be maintained.

The OPEC+ joint ministerial monitoring committee (JMMC), which reports on compliance with the cuts, is due to meet on Thursday in Abu Dhabi.
