BENGALURU: Prime Focus Limited (PFL) reported 48.3 per cent growth in Income from Operations (TIO) in the quarter ended 31 December, 2015 (Q2-2015, current quarter) to Rs 316.67 crore from Rs 222.33 crore in the corresponding year ago quarter (quarter ended 31 December 2013, or Q3-2014) but was 10.7 per cent lower than the Rs 356.96 crore in the immediate trailing quarter Q1-2015 (q-o-q).

Notes:

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

(2) The company had filed results for a fifteen month period ended 30 June 2014, hence y-o-y comparison is being done between Q2-2015 and Q3-2014 and q-o-q comparison is between Q2-2015 and  Q1-2015 (quarter ended 30 September 2014).

The company’s loss widened by Rs 36.17 crore in Q2-2015 as compared to the profit after tax (PAT) of Rs 10.33 crore (4.6 per cent of TIO) and a loss of Rs 22.01 crore in the immediate trailing quarter.The company says that loss for the quarter widened primarily due to non-cash tax charges, adverse FX fluctuation, residual exceptional integration expenses and finance charges.

PFL, in its earnings release for the previous quarter (Q1-2015), had said that loss for Q1-2015 had risen to Rs 22.02 crore because margins had been impacted primarily due to seasonal effects and due to significant duplication of costs in the creative services business in the first quarter post-merger. The company had initiated a global Integration process at its London, Vancouver and Indian facilities across both these entities. Consequently, the effects of the first phase of one time integration costs were also reflected in the financials claimed PFL. In its current quarter earnings release, PFL says Global integration of DNeg and PFW was proceeding as expected, with major integration expenses already incurred.

PFL’s simple EBIDTA excluding other income and based on the numbers submitted by it to the stock exchanges at Rs 35.48 crore was 20.9 per cent less than the EBIDTA of Rs 48.88 crore in the year ago quarter, but was a whopping 67.4 per cent more than the Rs 21.19 crore in the immediate trailing quarter.
