MUMBAI: UTV Software Communications Ltd. has posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 34 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2006, same as in the year-ago period.

While revenue rose seven per cent to stand at Rs 523 million, operating profit was at Rs 46 million. The company has consolidated the financials of post production outfit United Entertainment Solutions Ltd (UESL), UTV-US, UTV-UK and UTV-Mauritius. The board of directors, in its meeting held today, have taken on record the un-audited consolidated financial results of the company and its subsidiaries.

Commenting on the quarterly results, UTV CEO Ronnie Screwvala said, “The first quarter of the current fiscal has witnessed a marginal growth in revenues over the same quarter last year. This growth is largely driven by the new shows in the television and A&S segments and film revenues have largely remained flat as most of our releases for this fiscal are during the third and the fourth quarter. The margins of the company haven’t shown a corresponding increase mainly because the new shows introduced would take some time to mature in TV and airtime sales business. In our animation business, during past few quarters we have focused on overall scale by strengthening order book, moving up the value chain by entering into production of DVD and theatrical movies and expansion of facilities. These investments are expected to translate into higher revenues and margins going forward.”

The UTV scrip shed 4.01 per cent to close today at Rs 167.35 in the BSE. Even in the NSE, it lost 4.23 per cent to end at Rs 167.60.
