BENGALURU: Mukta Arts Limited (MAL) reported a Profit after Tax (PAT) of Rs 21.21 crore for the quarter ended 31 December, 2014 (Q3-2015, current quarter) as compared to the Rs 0.92 crore in Q3-2014 and a loss of Rs 0.03 crore in the immediate trailing quarter Q2-2015.

The higher profit for the current quarter could be attributed to the lower distributors and producer?s share paid by the company, which in most quarters equals or exceeds 90 per cent of the company?s operating income (TIO)

Notes:  100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10 million = 1 crore

For 9M-2015, finance cost at Rs 6.51 crore (7 per cent of TIO) was 54.4 per cent more than the Rs 4.22 crore (1.8 per cent of TIO) in 9M-2014.
