Mahindra Said to Consider Bidding for Hawker Beechcraft

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., India’s biggest maker of utility vehicles, is considering bidding for Hawker Beechcraft Inc., the bankrupt aircraft maker part owned by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., a person with knowledge of the matter said.

Hawker would fit well with Mahindra because both produce turboprop aircraft, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private. The Mumbai-based company has not decided whether to make an offer, the person said. Roma Balwani, a spokeswoman for Mahindra, said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.
