BENGALURU: Prime Focus Limited (PFL) reported 47 per cent YoY revenue growth for the quarter ending 31 December, 2015 (Q2-2016, current quarter) at Rs 468.52 crore from Rs 318.67 crore in Q2-2015 and 4.4 per cent higher QoQ as compared to Rs 448.57 crore in the immediate trailing quarter. The company reported more than double (2.02 times) YoY EBITA at Rs 75.56 crore (15.3 per cent margin) as compared to Rs 35.48 crore (11.1 per cent margin) and 37.4 per cent higher QoQ as compared to Rs 52.07 crore (11.6 per cent margin).

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

(2) The company had filed results for a fifteen month period ended June 30, 2014, hence YoY comparison is being done between Q2-2016 and Q2-2015 and QoQ comparison is between Q2-2016 and Q1-2016 (quarter ended September, 2015).

The company reported a lower net loss of Rs 11.40 crore in Q2-2016, a loss of Rs 36.17 crore in Q2-2015 and a loss of Rs 22.51 crore in Q1-2016.

PFL’s EBE in Q2-2016 at Rs 284.10 crore (62.4 per cent of TIO) was 43.8 per cent higher YoY as compared to Rs 197.54 crore and (62 per cent of TIO) and was almost flat (went up by 0.5 per cent) QoQ as compared to Rs 282.57 crore (61.6 per cent of TIO).

Fig B indicates that EBE also shows a linear upward trend in terms of percentage of TIO over the twelve quarters starting Q4-2013 until the current quarter Q2-2016. EBE has been the highest in Q2-2016 (62.4 per cent) in terms of absolute rupees, but in terms of percentage of TIO, it was highest in Q3-2015 at 64 per cent.
