Experts feel that the fundamentals of the company still remain intact and any dips should be used to buy into the stock.

“Aditya Ghosh had been the face and the most capable leader of Indigo. It is the team and the strategy which takes a business forward which remains intact. Every panic in Indigo because of the news is a terrific opportunity to buy,” Raamdeo Agrawal, joint MD at Motilal Oswal Financial Services told CNBC-TV18.

“The business strategy & team at Indigo remains intact. We hope the company will be able to repair the damage of Aditya Ghosh's exit. I am sure the management will bring an equally competent person in the place Mr. Ghosh,” he said.

The company is scheduled to report results for the quarter ended March 30 on 2nd May. Motilal Oswal which maintains a neutral rating on the stocks sees profit falling by 16 percent on a year-on-year basis and sequentially net profit could fall by 51 percent.
