KINGFISHER AND AIR DECCAN MERGER PDF

Air Deccan, India's largest low-cost carrier, has been running short of cash and had been seeking an investment partner to provide more funds to help it continue with its ambitious expansion programme, which includes adding dozens of new Airbus Afamily and ATR turboprop aircraft. The marriage is an unlikely one, as Kingfisher is a full-service carrier while Air Deccan is a strict no-frills operator. Kingfisher and UB Group chairman Vijay Mallya has said many times that he believes no-frills carriers cannot be successful in India. Gopinath, one of Air Deccan's founders, says the deal was agreed only after he was satisfied that Mallya would not take full control. But how long Air Deccan will be able to remain independent is an open question, as UB Group has only said it will maintain separate operations for Air Deccan and Kingfisher for "the near future".

The merger will create the largest player in the domestic aviation market and pave the way for Vijay Mallya to fly his Kingfisher Airlines to overseas destinations. Deccan Aviation will subsequently be renamed Kingfisher Airlines. Both the airlines are in the red. While Deccan Aviation reported a loss of Rs crore for the year ended June 30, , Kingfisher Airlines had a loss of Rs crore on its books for the year ended March 31, The new firm will operate two separate brands — Deccan and Kingfisher — and will retain their identities of being a low-cost carrier and a full-service airline, respectively.

Addressing the media after the board meetings, Mallya said that the new firm will kick off by early next fiscal. This process of merger has been a result of Kingfisher Airlines recently acquiring 46 per cent in Deccan Aviation through a two step process. First, Kingfisher Airlines acquired 26 per cent in Deccan Aviation and then made a public open offer for shareholders of Deccan Aviation. UB Holdings collectively spent around Rs 1, crore for this acquisition. Mallya, who has been lobbying hard with the government to let him fly abroad before his airline completes five years of domestic operations, would get what he wanted through this strategic move.

From August , the merged firm will have a right to fly overseas. Gopinath further added that Accenture in addition to this merger has also advised elaborately on the route rationalization, cost utilization and staffing issues, which will be detailed at a later date.

The inside story of Vijay Mallya's tumble: He bought Deccan with eyes closed

Vijay Mallya bought Air Deccan with his eyes closed. His team never went through the books of the loss making Air Deccan before Mallya agreed to buy it for a total consideration of Rs crore in At least that is what the book, called "The Vijay Mallya story" suggests. Written by senior journalist K Giriprakash, the book also speaks of how Mallya rushed into the airline business with Kingfisher Airlines, despite his close associates warning against the move. Kingfisher was to be a gift to son Siddharth Mallya on his eighteenth birthday on May 7, And no one - not lenders who were skeptical, not other airline veterans nor close associates - would dissaude Mallya senior from taking the plunge.
