Published on

Hi,

Here's one more presentation I gave in the 3rd semester of MBA in year 2008. The presentation is all about Satyam Scam.

There's a .PDF file attached in slide number 17 describing what lies ahead for the Satyam. Please don't forget to open it in order to understand the risks associated if Satyam gets acquired.

Thanks,
Varun M.

  6. 6. Maytas – A Hole in theMaytas – A Hole in the ShipShip It all started on 16.12.2008, when Ramalinga Raju thought, buying an infrastructure firm made sense! He, then, nailed a hole in a sinking ship Satyam was. It is a common affair in Indian Inc to make such pointless investments to divide the dividends by manipulating profit margins. Satyam’s Maytas bid dragged media in to it. Satyam intended to buy entire stakes in Maytas Properties for $1.3 Billion and 51% stakes in Maytas Infra for another $300 Million. Raju and his immediate family members own up to 35% stakes in Maytas. The deal was to be financed from “surplus” cash. Investors and the Fund managers were shocked that the bidding process was carried without informing them.   Raju said that the deal was in complete interest of the investors and informing them was “unnecessary”. On following days, Satyam’s share prices started falling
  7. 7. MAYTAS – A HOLE IN THE SHIPMAYTAS – A HOLE IN THE SHIP Satyam’s share prices fell in U.S.A. after the bid was announced. The interrogation by investors forced Raju to reconsider his decision, which he pulled off within hours. World Bank, one of Satyam’s esteemed customers banned it from providing service for next 8 years. Satyam’s image in front of its customers, investors, and more importantly, the entire nation got dented. Share prices tumbled even further by about 16%. The aborted buy- out deal and the ban indicated that something seriously went wrong at the board level. Valuation of Maytas turned out to be fraudulent. All of the four Firms, including Merry Lynch and JP Morgan denied having done any Valuation. The move sparked row between the institutional investors from across the world and Satyam’s board members, One of company’s two independent directors T.R. Prasad defended the decision of buy-out believing it to be increasing share value, Another director Mr. Shrinivasan quit before it was too late. Vinod Dham was also one of the non-executive directors of Satyam who later resigned in the wake of controversy. Two days after the controversial deal, Indian government ordered separate probe in to the matter On 7th January, Ramalinga Raju wrote a letter to all the board members and SEBI, informing them about inflated cash, faked

  9. 9. OTHER ISSUESOTHER ISSUES (WORLD BANK BAN & UPAID LAWSUIT)(WORLD BANK BAN & UPAID LAWSUIT)  The World Bank had banned Satyam from doing business with it for 8 years due to inappropriate payments to the World Bank's staff. The World Bank accused Satyam of giving improper benefits to its (the Bank's) staff and of failing to maintain documentation to support fees charged for its subcontractors.  UK mobile payments company Upaid Systems has sued Satyam for over 1 billion US dollars on complaints of fraud, forgery and breach of contract.
