I think Hawkins is a family run business ( no matter what anyone says).
The goal of Mr Vasudev is to ensure the long run sustainability of the brand, continue to be the channel master ( not sharing or giving channel power to distributors) . IN the process certain principles have been set as benchmarks of the company which are expected to be followed in Mr Vasudevs absence - no bribe/corruption , never look at short term gains because they often come at cost of long run benefits.
We should attend AGM keeping this in mind , that although Mr Vasudev may be vacating his posts , the new CEO is well tuned to his philosophy. And to ensure same guiding policy sustains, the new son-in-law director and son are being groomed for same.
So i feel no matter how much 'noise' we create at the AGM, the 'approach' will not change.
We aretodaysshareholders, may be gone tomorrow. Hawkins is His company and Will remain with his family for generations to come.
What we or at least I am hopeful with Hawkins shares is that in spite of 'passive' approach-vis-a vis- TTK, the consumer boom ( and the switch from unbranded to branded goods for Indian consumer) will work in favor of Hawkins ( and not because of some intelligent strategy/management of Mr Vasudev and his team)
thanks- holding good % in this company
