Each business decision taken by management impacts the profitability and survival of business, said Mr. Jyoti Prakash Gadia, Managing Director, Resurgent India Limited at the Seminar on Revival Strategies & Making Money from Stressed Assets organised by PHDCCI. He shared that taking orders at lower margins to justify working capital; operating with no margin for error; noncompliance; Poor planning and unable to absorb even minor shocks can lead to stress in organisations. He explained the early signs of stress including Cash flow from operations not materializing; small delays in paying creditors or statutory dues and managing non- fund limits indicate stress. He said that purchasing Stressed Assets is a way for investors and businesses to acquire valuable distressed assets at a throw away price. He explained the different ways of investing including Long term equity commitment ensuring the success of venture; Debt assignment with  growth plan for  sustainability and  leveraging strategic  potential; Structured approach  to realise maximum  potential and follow  dynamic approach for  long term success


Mr. Harak C. Banthia, Chief Financial Officer, HMEL shared experience of company going into NCLT. He observed that it is important for banks to trust the companies going into stress as some potential NPAs may revive in the near future. Thus re-establishing the trust deficit by banks is the key mantra to revival of stressed assets.


Mr. Rajiv Chawla, Chairman, IamSMEof India observed that entrepreneurs need to monitor their cash flows on a daily basis. Exit Strategy is also a business strategy thus needs to be understood carefully.
