Auditors red-flag Kingfisher’s revival plans

Grounded airline Kingfisher Airlines’ decision to consider it a ‘going concern’ entity, despite having accumulated huge losses and defaulted on loans, has come for a sharp criticism by its own auditors, given a lack of clarity about its revival plans.

At the same time, the auditors of Kingfisher’s parent entity, United Breweries (Holdings) Ltd, have also expressed their concern over the company’s significant exposure to the airline, which has been grounded for about ten months now and its flying permit also lapsed long ago.

Part of Vijay Mallya-led UB group, Kingfisher has never reported a full-year profit as its accumulated losses have crossed Rs.17,000 crore, net worth has been completely eroded and lenders have recalled loans totalling more than Rs.6,000 crore after repeated defaults.
