Samundra Manthan Awards

The flagship event of Bhandarkar Shipping News - Samudra Manthan Awards has become BIG. Samudra Manthan Awards is a classic example of raising the bar, for it always seems unreachable until it's done.In its 4th edition, Samudra Manthan is identifying India's astonishing Jal Durgs - forts built in lakes, rivers or seas. When we look at the glorious, colossal structures of Indian 'Jal Durgs' (particularly Sea Forts) built by the leaders of the time, it is awesome! Their extraordinary vision, farsightedness, and exemplary courage to protect their people and economies from ravaging environmental and intruding forces is spell binding. Jal Durgs or Sea Forts do not just represent a symbolic structure of power. They were built to protect a kingdom from invaders, to support trade through water transport and thus establish its unending supremacy. This is similar to award winning companies that build a fortress of business excellence and thereby establish their eminence in business environment and economy. Samudra Manthan Awards is all set to bring these 'Fort' like organizations out of veil. By churning (Manthan) the Samudra, Bhandarkar Shipping News is identifying the marvels of vision and sustainability that were built in the raging oceans of risks. Here comes Jal Durg, the 4th edition of Samudra Manthan Awards.

There are good business and accounting reasons to create a joint venture (JV) with a company that has complementary capabilities such as distribution channels, technology, or finance, joint ventures are becoming an increasingly common way for companies to form strategic alliances.In a joint venture, two or more “parent” companies agree to share capital, technology, human resources, risks and rewards in a formation of a new entity under shared control.Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate restructuring are a big part of the corporate finance world. Every day, investment bankers arrange M&A transactions, which bring separate companies together to form larger ones. When they’re not creating big companies from small ones, corporate finance deals do the reverse and breakup companies through spinoffs, carve-outs or tracking stocks. Not surprisingly, these actions often make the news. Deals can be worth hundreds of millions, or even billions, of dollars. They care dictate the fortunes of the companies involved for years to come. And it is no wonder we hear about so many of these transactions; they happen all the time. Knowing the value of stock in a closely held company is important to anyone that has an ownership interest in a business. The valuation process of determining what a company is worth is not a simple one. Planning is the power source for performance. A process to analyze and recommend organizational, structural and investment alternatives should be set in place. Investing requires consideration of many factors, not the least of which is the economic viability of the underlying investment.
