RG Chandramogan remembers 1996 vividly. It was the year Hatsun Agro, the company he built from scratch, went public. “It was a disaster,” he remarks. “We overestimated things. Everybody congratulated us, nobody invested in us.” But a passionate badminton player who runs HAP Badminton Centre of Excellence in Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu, Chandramogan has a habit of making a comeback in business too. The Tamil Nadu-based company’s market cap today stands at Rs.96.53 billion compared with Rs.186.25 million when it listed.
