Mahut Group (name disguised) is a family owned business group that operates two cement companies, Heera and Moti Cement (name disguised), in the state of Gujarat in Western India. Heera is a sick unit and is under Board of Industrial & Financial Reconstruction (BIFR). Moti Cement is a loss making company. The cement industry was deregulated in India, which resulted in fierce competition and price war. In the face of this fierce competition, as a part of major restructuring process, the group hired an American consulting firm, in early 1998, to find a “synergy” between the two companies and help the two companies to turnaround. This research case discusses the issues of the restructuring and the interventions during the restructuring process that were undertaken by the top management of Mahut Group.
