Browntape investment: Earlier today we reported that Gati invested an undisclosed amount in online order and inventory management company Browntape. Interestingly, the company mentions that it decided to make a “strategic investment in a technology company of Rs 18.50 crores to facilitate long term growth of business.” Gati will be utilizing Browntape’s platform to develop a single window solution for customers which will integrate its logistics network.

Other developments:

– The company is awaiting clarification from the Reserve Bank of India on matters pertaining to foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) issued by the company. In the meanwhile, the trustee of the bond holders has filed a civil suit in the Secunderabad Court for specific performance, which the company is contesting.

– Note that the Delhi High Court had last year pronounced an order in favour of the company in a case against Air India and upheld the award of Arbitral Tribunal. Under this award, Gati is entitled to receive around Rs 26 crore from Air India. As of now, the company mentions that Air India has paid an amount of Rs 22 crore.

– A demand of Rs 51.13 crores was raised by the Income Tax Department on certain other disallowance/additions, which the company contested with an order being passed in favour of Gati. The company, which had paid Rs 12.60 crores, will now be refunded for the amount.
