UB Holdings said lenders of now defunct Kingfisher Airlines (KFA), pursuant to corporate guarantees given by it, demanded from it dues owed by the airlines amounting to Rs 6,203.35 crore with further interest and other dues. The company said it was taking further steps on the advice of its lawyers against the Karnataka High Court Order that disposed its writ petition filed against Debt Recovery Tribunal's dismissal of its plea to reject application to recover dues.
UB Holdings is now involved in a number of litigations related to dues incurred by Kingfisher Airlines. According to limited review by its auditor, the company has a total exposure of Rs 13,244.88 crore in the form of investment in equity; advances given; receivable interest, commission and logo fees; guarantees given to banks and guarantees given to aircraft lessors and others.
Two winding up petitions filed against the company before the Karnataka High Court by certain beneficiaries of corporate guarantees have been admitted, the auditors said, adding the company continued to recognise these obligations as contingent liability. Six more winding up petitions against the company are pending disposal.
