SpiceJet almost went bankrupt during 2014-15. In February 2015, Kalanidhi Maran transferred his stake in SpiceJet to Ajay Singh. Ajay Singh took over the company’s liability of Rs 1,500 crore. For this he had paid Rs 2 to the airline. Under the then agreement, Maran and Kal Airways gave Rs 679 crore to SpiceJet in lieu of issuance of warrants and preference shares. In 2017, Dayanidhi Maran accused him of not issuing convertible warrants and preference shares. He said that Spiget has not even given him money. He filed the case in Delhi High Court.
