NCLT Approves $10 Billion Mega-Merger Between Zee and Sony

Mumbai bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) had approved the merger between 2 entertainment industry named Zee Entertainment Enterprises, and Culver Max Entertainment (formerly known as Sony Pictures Networks India or SPNI), where SEBI is going to decide their take on 14th of August. Till now, the decision is taken behind by a panel headed by Justice HV Subba Rao alongside member Madhu Sinha. Over this decision, the Former ED of SEBI had told by media “The organisation or a corporation as an entity is different from a person. In this case, NCLT has given approval for a merger between Sony and Zee. Now in the merger, there was a condition that Punit Goenka will be MD but that condition was there as long as Punit Goenka was not prohibited by any other law of the country from becoming MD. So this NCLT order on the merger is separate and any other proceeding that is going on whether it is by SEBI, RBI or whatever it may be, will be separate. So as per the NCLT order the two entities can merge and the consequences of any future order will be on the merged entity. The merged entity cannot say that NCLT had approved so I will not follow what SEBI says, so the orders are separate,”
