Earlier in a regulatory filing on 16 July this year, the company had said it defaulted on payment on unsecured commercial papers worth Rs 45 crore.

On 1 July, Cox & Kings had said in a filing that company's working capital situation was stretched in the last few months, which was further impacted due to its inability to replace the short term loans with long term loans or regular working capital lines.

The company is taking all required measures to resolve the temporary cash flow mismatch, it had said.

Shares of Cox & Kings closed at Rs 14.75 per scrip on the BSE, down 4.84 per cent from the previous close.
