The British CFO of Indian FTSE 100 company Essar Energy has resigned his
position just five months after taking the job.
Gerry Bacon is to study art history at Reading University, a decision made in
June following the £1.3bn flotation of the firm . Share prices initially fell 7%
after the IPO as the company struggled to attract institutional investors,
although they have now recovered.
The company also announced a fall of pre-tax profits to £112m from £156m due
to weak retail prices and a volatile inventory. Revenue had risen 66% to £4.76bn
Bacon will be replaced by the current finance director of the Essar Oil
division, P Sampath.
