Tata Group Conveys Strong Interest In Air India Ownership

Tata has a bid for Air India which is up for sale.

Based on this, Tata filed their ‘Expression of Interest” (EOI) to the airline.

Back Again With A Bang

Air India was started by the ‘Father of Indian Civil Aviation & ‘Bharat Ratna’ awardee Jehangir Rustomji Tata (JRD Tata).

JRD was the first Indian to have got the Commercial Pilot License (CPL).

The Tata Group exited the airline in 1953.  Tata’s achievement of owning Air India again would be monumental.

While doing this, Tata is likely to use the AirAsia India vehicle to file their interest where they have a majority stake.

AirAsia -Tata’s present, minority partner – has expressed inability to infuse fresh funds.  This is due to their financial trouble in its home country, Malaysia.

Air India Employees Bid For Their Airline.

In addition, A group of 200 Air India employees will file their interest in acquiring this airline. Apart from these two, Ajay Singh of SpiceJet is also is eyeing the AI purchase.

AI was first put up for sale in 2018 with no suitors expressing interest.  But this is a different situation now with more than one party bidding.  Consequently, the highest bidder will most likely receive the sale. Bidders will submit the Enterprise Value (EV). As a result, the EV determines the winning bid.

Since this is a confidential procedure,  the Department of  Investment & Public Asset Management (DIPM) is expected to comment on this at an appropriate time.  However, the authorities have not set the time frame for these actions.

Government’s Sweet Offer

Additionally, the sale terms have attracted bidders. Previously the Government has offered only 76% sale of stake both in Air India and Air India Express.  This time around, the entire 100% sale is being offered along with the entire 50% stake sale it owns in ground handling joint venture AI-SATS to bidders.

On its part,  the Tata Sons – the parent company of the Tata Conglomerate – runs a full-service carrier, Vistara, which is a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons.  However,  Tata’s have decided to bid their interest through the JV they have with AirAsia India. Singapore Airlines was not keen on participating in the privatisation programme of AI.

In the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, these are indicators of the turnaround of the Aviation industry.

One hopes faster recovery rates to the pre-COVDI-19 situation for the Industry.  Comments are welcome.
