If needed, I am willing to quit: Subhiksha chief
Chennai: R. Subramanian, Managing Director of the troubled retail chain Subhiksha, Wednesday said he was ready to quit if it would help in reviving the company.

"If there is a need to install a new management for the better future of the business, its employees and customers, then I shall be more than happy to facilitate that and play an appropriate role as a financial stakeholder," Subramanian said in a statement.

He, however, added: "I cannot leave the system in the lurch till one is sure that the company is back on track and all stakeholders are taken care of adequately."

The statement comes in the wake of media reports that the 23-percent stake holder ICICI Venture is working with other investors to revive Subhiksha.

"There is no question of any greater control ICICI Venture can exercise than presently under the rights they already have and have been exercising," Subramanian later told IANS.

"There is no contradiction - even if I am to step down that can be only when I am sure that we have the right people in place who can take care of the company and take it forward," he added.

Taking a dig at ICICI Venture officials, who have resigned from the Subhiksha board this month, Subramanian said: "Would you leave the boat in the middle of a rough sea and escape? That would be like what ICICI venture has done by trying to withdraw nominees from the board."

ICICI Venture sold a portion of its holding in the cash-strapped retail chain to Zash Investment - the private equity fund owned by Wipro's Azim Premji - for 2.3 billion (230 crore) in March last year.

Subhiksha, with a debt burden of over 7.5 billion (750 crore), is looking for a 3 billion (300 crore) cash infusion to stay afloat.

"All employees and banks and stakeholders can be reassured that I am not walking out of this nor trying to evade or escape responsibility for resolving the issues that we face today due to lack of liquidity and the wrong decision on letting equity not flow into the company," Subramanian said.

1: Dear Sir,

I admire your decision of stepping down if it is going to be beneficial for the employees and the customers. But I want you to be there and turn around the companys future. I really admire your guts and patience in this market scenario and the pressure from all the side.

Have really got to learn a lot while operations were ON. Looking forward for the ball to start rolling again. All the very best to you.

5: Dear Sir,

Though i worked for a short period at Subhiksha, I learnt a lot. Yes today the company is having lots of problems with regards to financially & I believe this is just a passing cloud & I am very sure that you & the company will bounce back.Starting from 1 store to 1600 stores is not a joke & many people from Reliance,Future group have taken a leaf from Subhiksha. My best wishes to you & the company & still interested to work with the Subhiksha.

Rgds,
Krishna.

17: Dear Mr.Subramaniam I know its really easy to post a comment sitting at home and pressing Enter but as an Entrepreneur I guess you really don't want to quit, and do follow your heart and use all your wits to regain as there could be a solution I am not having adequate knowledge to judge your decision but we all middile class and below middle class families want Subhiksha ro Raise again. My mom is a big fan of subhiksha. And i like the innovative-ness in the market but I am unable to guess the intricacies in you business

25: Quitting the chair is not going to help any of the stake-holders now. Sir, given the current recessionary situation, you will have to show the required tenacity and grit to tide over the present crisis and turn things around.

29: Quiting the chair will give room at large for filferation.Being in the chair, getting the situation bailing out would appreciate the interest of the stake holders and the employees.This exercise will give a big HOPE to all in this recision hit times.
