Jet re-working profitability plan
Posted on 19th May 2014
Private carrier Jet Airways is re-working a comprehensive profitability plan sought by its foreign partner, Etihad Airways, which completed a 24 per cent stake purchase in the Naresh Goyal-led carrier recently. The development comes on the heels of the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) exempting the UAE carrier from making an open offer to the public shareholders of Jet. Had Sebi insisted on making an open offer, Etihad would have automatically become the controlling partner of Jet with 50 per cent stake, which would have been one per cent more than what the sectoral FDI norms permit. Reportedly, Etihad skirted the open offer scare following which both partners reworked some of their joint venture terms.
