Sony terminates Zee’s employment due to a merger agreement

  • Sony officially notified Zee of its decision to void the merger with its India division.
  • A leadership impasse has caused Sony to renounce a $10 billion merger agreement with Zee.
  • The SEBI investigation into Goenka’s leadership led to the dismissal.

Sony officially notified Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. of its decision to void the merger with its India division, citing unfulfilled requirements as the cause. It is anticipated that the Japanese entertainment behemoth will reveal its decision to fire Zee to the exchange at a later time.

A leadership impasse has caused Sony to renounce a $10 billion merger agreement with Zee, citing SEBI-inquired Punit Goenka as the chief executive officer.

The goal of the merger was to build a $10 billion media behemoth that could take on international heavyweights like Netflix and Amazon.com. The SEBI investigation into Goenka’s leadership led to the dismissal.

After a 30-day grace period expired over the weekend, Sony sent out its termination letter. The deadline that was set for late December was not met by the two parties during this time.

In June, SEBI charged the media outlet based in Mumbai with falsifying loan recovery documents to hide secret financing arrangements made by its founder, Subhash Chandra. According to the interim SEBI judgment, funds were diverted by Chandra and his son Goenka, who “abused their position”.

Sony nevertheless saw the ongoing investigation as a potential threat to corporate governance, even though Goenka was able to challenge the SEBI judgment that prohibited him from holding an executive or board position in a listed firm through an appeal authority.
