Asian Paints Under Pressure After Whistle-Blower Flags Related Party Transactions

Asian Paints shares slumped over 4% today after reports said that a whistle-blower has reportedly flagged off related party transactions carried out by the paint maker's promoters that allegedly benefited them at the cost of the company's shareholders.

The whistle-blower informed the market regulator that money to buy a company called Paladin Paints and Chemicals went from Asian Paints but its promoters Ashwin Dani and son Malav now control it in their personal capacity.

The market watchdog has reportedly sought further details from the whistle-blower.

In a clarification to the exchanges, Asian Paints said,

  • The said complaint was investigated in accordance with the company's whistle blower policy, and after undertaking a detailed review of the transactions which were mentioned therein, the said complaint was closed as the enquiry concluded that the transactions were undertaken in compliance with the law, and there was no basis for the allegations made.

Explaining further, the company said that it had entered into a technical consultancy agreement with Jayram Nadkarni, a former employee of Asian Paints and Paladin Paints & Chemicals during the financial year 2005-2006.

Pursuant to this agreement, an upfront consultancy charge of Rs 12 m and a monthly consultancy of Rs 1.2 m for a period of 21 months amounting to Rs 25.2 m was paid to Nadkarni for providing necessary technical consultancy, technology knowledge package and process for manufacturing of resins to the company with respect to the products governed by the agreement, Asian Paints said in the exchange filing.

Asian Paints share price ended the day down by 2% on the BSE.
