SJMSOM, IIT Bombay to Organize Educational Event "Finance Continuum 2007"
Theme: "Financing India's Growth Story"
On August 11, 2007
Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management at IIT Bombay is organizing FINANCE CONTINUUM 2007 on 11th August, 2007. The day-long educational event will be focusing on the theme "Financing India's Growth Story" with a panel discussion and speeches by eminent speakers from the financial domain.
The theme of "Financing India's Growth Story" is apt with India Inc. companies' global ambitions. Matching and even setting new global standards has become a norm in this quest for global scale. Strong growth story of India coupled with the ever improving business environment makes for a strong organic growth of the Indian companies. On top of this, these companies are looking at the inorganic route more than ever before. The acquisition of foreign companies started off in the IT and related services sector, and it has taken off now in other sectors too. The year 2007 has already seen two major foreign acquisitions by Indian companies. The Tata - Corus deal is the largest Indian takeover of a foreign company. Tata Steel will now become the fifth largest manufacturer of steel in India. The Birlas soon followed with another billion dollar deal to acquire Novelis Inc., the largest flat-rolled aluminum maker in the world.
So, an important question to ask is, "Where will the money for these huge investments come from?" The role of banks, money markets, financial institutions, investment banks, venture capitalists and private equity firms becomes very critical at such a juncture.
It is in this context, that the Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management, IIT Bombay, brings forth "Finance Continuum" on the theme, "Financing India's Growth Story". The keynote speech will be delivered by Dr. Shailesh J. Mehta, President, Granite Hill Capital Ventures LLC.
The panel discussion will feature: -
Mr. Saurabh Singhal, Head Global Markets, Deutsche Bank
Mr. Sughosh Moharikar, Executive Director and Head of M&A, Kotak Investment Bank
