“Further, the material subsidiary has informed the company that, it will take the required legal action in this regard,” it said. CDGL reported a consolidated total income of Rs 920.41 crore with a loss of Rs 67.77 crore in 2022-23.

According to CDEL’s annual report for FY22, CDGL owns 495 cafes in 158 cities and 285 CCD Value Express kiosks, along with 38,810 vending machines that dispense coffee in corporate workplaces and hotels.

Ever since the death of founder Chairman V G Siddhartha in July 2019, Coffee Day Enterprises has been in trouble. It is paring its debts through asset resolutions and has significantly scaled it down from the time the trouble started. In March 2020, CDEL announced it is repaying Rs 1,644 crore to 13 lenders after it managed to finalise a deal with Blackstone Group to sell its technology business park.

Earlier this year, the company also attracted a penalty of Rs 26 crore from the market regulator SEBI, after it failed to stop the diversion of Rs 3,535 crore from it’s subsidiary Mysore Amalgamated Coffee Estates Ltd (MACEL), which is an entity related to promoters. It is trying to recover the amount legally from MACEL.
