The case gives a comprehensive account of the loss incurred by Crompton Greaves Ltd. (CGL) in 2000, and the restructuring measure adopted by the company that led to its spectacular turnaround. CGL is one of the leading companies in power equipments and appliances manufacturing based in India. Set up in pre-independent India, the company was able to establish itself as a strong player in the domestic market. When it ran into losses for two consecutive years in 2000 and 2001, many analysts and investors were ready to write it off. But CGL introduced effective restructuring measures which resulted in the company coming back into profits in 2002. CGL then focused on globalization. Going forward, the company aimed to increase its presence in international markets and become one of the top five players in its industry globally.
