Business Restructuring Exercise in the Final Quarter

BYJU’s spokesperson stated, “We are in the final quarter of a business restructuring exercise. Through this, we aim to simplify operations restructuring and improve cash flow management.

BYJU’s Battles Cash Crunch

The company is currently facing a cash crunch. To alleviate this, BYJU’s has sold two of its major assets, Aakash and Great Learning. Alongside this, the company has been under regulatory scrutiny for the past few months. In July, the company’s auditor, Deloitte Haskins & Sells, resigned from their position and stated that they were not helping prepare the company’s financial results.
