Trilogic Digital Media to infuse fresh capital; to expand channel bouquet

BENGALURU: Trilogic Digital Media Limited (TDM) informed the stock exchanges that its board had passed various resolutions to raise more money. The company has an authorised share capital of Rs 20 crore. Trilogic Digital Media Ltd has informed the BSE that its board of directors had fixed 12 February, 2015 as the record date for reckoning the shareholders entitled to receive the bonus shares of the company in the ratio of 1:1 (i.e., one fully paid up bonus equity shares for every one fully paid equity shares held) as approved by the members in the Annual General Meeting held on 20 September, 2014. The company also plans to up borrowings.

“The new capital that we plan to infuse in will be used for new expansions in our broadcast content management business. We should expand the kitty to between eight - ten channels from the current three that we manage in next couple of months,” revealed TDM CEO and CFO Vishal Gurnani. While refusing to share the channels that TDM plans to manage, Gurnani said that NDAs with the channels prevented him from revealing details at this stage.

Industry sources told that the company plans to add channels from the regional space – South India and Bengal to be more precise.
