This group had the legacy of conducting business ventures over the past 40 years. Starting as a group of related and unrelated businesses in a purely family-owned entity, now the group had three publicly listed companies and over 15 family-owned businesses in its fold. Following the tradition that the eldest in the family headed the group, the group performed under the leadership of the chairman. Manufacturing and trading units involved goods such as sugar,liquors,granite and cotton yarn, as well as distribution of renowned brands.

In 1983 Bannari Amman Sugar ltd was incorporated which have IPO in 1983 which was oversubscribed by more than 16 times. They recived huge funding from bnks and public to start with their projects. This was due to creditworthiness of Balasubramaniam, chairman of BAG. He believed “if you need to run a business, you should be conversant with all aspects of business”. He was qualified CA,CS and had hands on experienced in sales, export, finance and administration. They extended their business to Sugar, alcohol, food, textile, health, finance, transport, granite and cogeneration, developing synergies in all its business. For example.

He observed that the business group's units emerged as independent entities, but the businesses were complementing each other to a certain extent. This was especially true for the logistics. Due to this, the group's businesses enjoyed an inherent advantage. As he looked at the challenges that the units would come across under new leadership in the forthcoming years, he was also aware of the need to develop the vision across the spectrum of units big and small, flagship companies and the smaller stragglers. The chairman looked for processes to keep the group synergies in place and identify the businesses that could be strengthened over time. The main question remains as How will this private regime that turned into a reputed corporate structure sustains its operations and advance future in all corridors?
