Now Two More Serious questions need to be answered in this continuing Satyam Saga !
QUESTION NO 1
DID RAMALINGA RAJU INTIMATE LENDERS TO SELL HIS PLEDGED SHARES BEFORE RELEASING HIS CONFESSION LETTER TO REALISE A BETTER PRICE TO CLEAR MORE OF THE LOAN ?
This is very much posssible as the Promoters Holdings was 8.61 % on December 16,2008 when Satyam announced the controversial Maytas Takeover Proposal but has since dropped to below 4%…It so transpires that promoters had pledged their shares to raise funds…Ramalinga Raju claims in his confession that the understated Liability of Rs 1230 crs in Satyam is on account of his raising funds for the Company against his own Shares !
Lenders have sold these pledged shares post December 16,2008….Question arises as to whether the disgraced Ramalinga Raju pre-warned the Lenders to selloff before he released his confession letter yesterday morning…This would have got the Lenders a better price as Satyam share was murdered yesterday from Rs 175 to close at Rs 40 on release of the Confession Letter
Another Thought !…If Raju claims he arranged Rs 1230 crs for Satyam against his shares then what was the accounting entry passed in the Books of Satyam for this ?…as Monies should have come into Satyam,the Debit obviously would have been “Bank” but where was the Credit given for the Double Entry ?…If it was ,as it should have been,given to the Lenders to reflect their Lender Status in the Books then where is the understatement ?…..Understatement arises only when the Credit was not given to the Lenders but to some other Accounting Head…It cannot have been a Single Entry…Books would not have tallied !….What the hell were the auditors Price Waterhouse doing ? How did these entries escape them in both Substance and Form ! ?
I want to know where the Credit was given in the Satyam Accounts for such funds as Raju claims were arranged by him against his shares !
OUESTION NO 2
NOW WE KNOW WHY THE MAYTAS PROPOSAL WAS STRUCTURED THE WAY IT WAS ! QUESTION IS WHICH ‘BIG FOUR FIRM ‘ CONNIVED WITH SATYAM TO BRING UP THE VALUE OF THE MAYTAS DEAL TO US $ 1.6 BILLION ! TO MATCH THE SATYAM ASSET HOLE ?
IF INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS WERE IN THE DARK,THEN WHEN THIS MAYTAS DEAL WAS PROPOSED AT THE BOARD,THEY SHOULD AND WOULD HAVE IMMEDIATELY QUESTIONED WHY ALL SATYAM CASH WAS BEING USED AND WHY THE DEAL WAS BEING ROUTED THROUGH SONS OF SATYAM PROMOTER RAMALINGA RAJU AND NOT DIRECTLY GIVEN TO MAYTAS !…AT THIS STAGE THESE GREAT ACADEMICS,PROF KRISHNA PALEPU OF HARVARD,PROF RAMMOHAN RAO,(DEAN OF ISB) AND DR MANGALAM SRINIVASAN AND INTEL ICON, MR VINOD DHAM WOULD HAVE REALISED THE DUBIOUS REASONS FOR SUCH A STRUCTURING AND THE CRIMINALITY THAT WOULD STAND EXPOSED…THEY SHOULD HAVE NOTED THEIR DISSENT IN THE MEETING !
