The release also states that the increase in profits is mainly because of increase in total revenues and strict cost control measures taken by the company. During the year total operating revenue has increased by 26 per cent and total operating costs have decreased by 17 per cent as compared to previous year's figures.

The release also mentions that the dividend will be paid on expanded capital of Rs 139.2 million. Total cash out flow on account of payment of dividend will be Rs 27.8 million. The dividend will be free of tax in the hands of shareholders' since the company would be paying dividend tax at the rate of 12.5 per cent amounting to Rs 3.5 million.

In terms of future strategy, ETC Networks has started the process of integration of various functions such as sales and programming in order to draw synergies from the strengths of each other. It has started recycling its existing programmes to exploit the same in overseas markets using Zee's existing international platform. In UK, the programmes have received overwhelming response from the viewers, the release adds. There are plans to launch the programmes on a commercial basis in USA and some other markets also.

The release also mentions that the company has taken conscious decision to improve upon its channel content by having optimum mix of trailors and music and film based programmes. As such the inventory for trailors on the channels is restricted. This policy has already resulted in increase in advertising revenues on both channels, the release adds.

According to the release, ETC Punjabi and ETC (Music) have further consolidated their market leader status in their respective genre. ETC Punjabi claims to enjoy 70 per cent market share among all Punjabi channels and ETC (music) claims to have a 40 per cent market share among the music channels in India. Out of top 25 programmes among the music channel 16 programmes are from ETC (as per TAM report), says the release.

In order to improve corporate governance practices, the company has appointed CR. Mehta, former member company law board, as additional director on the board.
