No End For Turbulence At Vedanta As Another CFO Steps Down

The metals and mining colossus, Vedanta Ltd, has been reportedly hit by another top-level departure. This time, it’s their Chief Financial Officer Sonal Shrivastava who has stepped down.

What Happened: Vedanta Ltd has witnessed another high-ranking departure as its CFO resigned, as per a Bloomberg report on Monday. Shrivastava’s departure comes just months after she joined the conglomerate in June this year.

The CFO’s exit follows a series of top-tier exits that have marred the company. This news adds to the existing apprehensions about the management stability of the metals and mining powerhouse.

Why It Matters: This development comes on the heels of a turbulent period for Vedanta. The company has been battling multiple issues, including a nearly 30% drop in its share price this year. The recent downgrade of its long-term debt by India Ratings and Research further aggravated the situation. The downgrade from “IND AA” to “IND AA-” was attributed to the company’s growing liquidity concerns and shrinking financial flexibility, largely due to delays in refinancing.

Price Action: Vedanta’s share price was down 1.86% to trade at ₹218.60 in early trade on Monday.
