Satyam vows to continue business as usual

Tuesday, 13 January, 2009


In the wake of last week’s US$1 billion balance sheet scandal, Indian outsourcer Satyam has appointed three new board members and issued a joint statement in order to calm clients and investors.

Of primary importance in the statement was the news that the company will appoint an independent accounting firm within the next 48 hours to recalculate and announce the company’s previously misrepresented Q3 results.

“The top priority of the board is to restore confidence of the customers, employees, suppliers and investors by ensuring business continuity,” the statement reads.

The document also revealed that several more new members will be appointed to the board, followed by the appointment of a new Chairman.

The new members of the board are Deepak Parekh, Chairman of HDFC Bank; Kiran Karnik, former President of NASSCOM; and C Achuthan, Director of the National Stock Exchange and also a former chairman of Securities Appellate Tribunal.
