BENGALURU: Balaji Telefilms Limited (Balaji) reported 15.5 percent decline in consolidated total revenue from operations (TIO) for the year ended 31 March 2016 (FY-16, current year). The company’s consolidated profit after tax (PAT) in the current year declined to less than half as compared to the previous year. Balaji attributes the decline in consolidated TIO to release of just one film in the current fiscal as compared to five in the FY-15. Further, the company had to pay more than a five-fold (5.6 times) increase in income tax in the current year as compared to FY-15.

Balaji’s reported consolidated TIO in FY-16 at Rs 292.76 crore as compared to Rs 342.65 crore in the previous year. PAT in FY-16 was Rs 2.74 crore (1 percent PAT margin) as compared to Rs 5.63 crore (1.6 percent PAT margin) in FY-15. 

Note: The unit of currency in this report is the Indian rupee - Rs (also conventionally represented by INR). The Indian numbering system or the Vedic numbering system has been used to denote money values. The basic conversion to the international norm would be:

(a) 100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10,000,000 = 10 million = 1 crore.

(b) 10,000 lakh = 100 crore = 1 arab = 1 billion.

EBIDTA in the current year declined 2 percent to Rs 5.95 crore (2 percent EBIDTA margin) as compared to 6.06 crore (1.7 percent EBIDTA)

For the quarter ended 31 March 2016 (Q4-16, current quarter), Balaji reported 6 percent year-over-year (y-o-y) growth in consolidated TIO at Rs 83.23 crore as compared to Rs 77.81 crore in Q4-15, and a 12 percent quarter-over-quarter (q-o-q) growth from Rs 73.15 crore in Q3-16.

Revenue for the quarter from commissioned programs (including Nach Baliye) declined to Rs 55.64 crore as compared to Rs 59.51 crore in Q1-15 and Rs 71.27 crore in the immediate trailing quarter. The company says that the decline in revenues for Q4-16 was due to Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi, Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar and Pyar Ko Ho Jane Do going off air during the quarter.

The company created lesser hours of programming in Q4-16 as compared to during the corresponding year ago quarter and during the immediate trailing quarter. Total programming hours in Q1-16 were 247 as compared to 258 in Q1-15 and 294.5 hours in Q3-16. Net realisation per hour in Q4-16 increased to Rs 22.5 lakh as compared to Rs 22 lakh in Q1-15, but declined when compared to Rs 24.2 lakh in Q3-16.
