ETC's turnover is down to Rs 313.3 million (Rs 538.2 million in the year to March 2001) even as expenses on exceptional items of Rs 136.12 million have dragged its net profit into negative terrain (Rs 141.06 million as against a profit of Rs 24.36 million last year).

To top it all, its reserves have dropped to Rs 273.81 million (Rs 299.24 million). 

Zee Telefilms has in recent times acquired the promoters interest in ETC Networks from the present promoters and ETC has allotted 22,20,812 equity shares at price of Rs 31.52 to the media major. Consequently, Zee will be holding more then 51 per cent of the expanded capital of the company.
