Some of the issues to be addressed through settlement include payment of dues and clearing related party transactions.
Padmaja Reddy resigned from her position as the managing director of the company on November 2, 2021. Subsequently, certain disputes arose between Reddy and the board.
On May 30, SSFL said this settlement will include a reconciliation of all historical matters. These were to be verified and validated as part of the finalisation procedures for the full‐year accounts. It had indicated to release its annual audited financial results no later than June 30, 2022. The company expects results to be largely in line with its unaudited figures.
SFFL said While Reddy was no longer serving as the managing director, she continued to be a substantial shareholder and member of the company’s Board. Reddy continues to remain a well-wisher of Spandana and will extend all the required guidance and support, it added.
