<p>He described the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of shareholders on Friday as a “farce” and said that “rumors” of his dismissal from Byju’s “have been greatly exaggerated and highly inaccurate” in a letter to staff members.</p>
<p>“As our company’s CEO, I am writing this letter to you. He remarked, “I remain CEO, management is the same, and the board stays the same, notwithstanding what you may have read in the media.</p>
<p>Friday saw a vote by more than 60% of the company’s stockholders to remove Raveendran and his family from the board due to “mismanagement and failures”</p>
<p>But Raveendran disagreed, claiming that several fundamental regulations had been “violated” in the EGM decision.</p>
<p>He added, “This implies that the decisions made during that meeting are invalid since they violated the set guidelines.Everyone has to be aware of the particular problems that make this EGM absurd.</p>
<p>Since Byju Raveendran and his family believed the EGM to be “invalid,” they chose not to attend.</p>
<p>The CEO of Byju also pointed out in his email to the staff that a quorum was needed for the investor meeting, and that quorum required the participation of at least one Founder Director.</p>
<p>“It is entirely false that a tiny number of chosen minority shareholders claimed to have approved the resolution at the EGM by unanimous vote. Merely 35 out of 170 shareholders, or around 45% of the total shareholding, cast votes in favor of the proposal. That demonstrates the very little support this pointless gathering had,” he said.</p>
<p>Furthermore, Raveendran said that he is certain that the truth would ultimately come to light despite the “relentless trial by the media”.</p>
<p>Once a household name in the nation for ed-tech, Byju’s is now dealing with a number of issues, such as growing losses, a serious financial shortage, and a falling value.</p>
