Jet Airways Takes Flight

On Monday, Jet Airways' share price went up by over 12.5% as it was reported that founder and principal promoters Naresh Goyal and his wife, Anita Goyal would step down from the board.

As per an article in The Economic Times, the debt-laden airline's lenders' consortium may invoke the entire 51% stake of Naresh Goyal in the airline and start looking for a new buyer in the weeks to come.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

  • The current CEO Vinay Dube is expected to stay on and steer Jet out of the current crisis.

    Former SBI managing director and a former Jet Airways board member Srinivasan Vishvanathan may be invited to join the airline's top leadership. Vishvanathan was on Jet's board as an Independent Director till August 2018 for nearly three years.

Reportedly, this development occurred after Etihad expressed its desire to exit the airline by formally asking State Bank of India (SBI) to purchase its stake in the airline.

In 2013, Jet Airways survived a similar crisis when Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways injected US$600 million of capital for a 24% stake in the airline, three London Heathrow slots and a majority share in Jet's frequent flyer programme. The infusion helped Jet pare down debt and fight growing domestic competition.

With more than US$1 billion of debt, Jet is struggling to stay afloat. It has delayed payments to banks, suppliers, pilots and lessors - some of which have forced the airline to ground as many as 40 planes.

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