BENGALURU: Sahara One Media & Entertainment Limited (Sahara One) reported a little more than one third the PAT at Rs 1.78 crore (2 per cent of net revenue from operations or Op Rev) in FY-2014 as compared to the Rs 5.29 crore (4.3 per cent of Op Rev) in FY-2013.  During the last two quarters of FY-2014, the company has incurred loss, and the profit that it has reported is residual from the PAT of the first two quarters of the year.

Sahara One reports revenue from two segments – television and motion pictures. The revenue numbers from its motion pictures segment have been negligible in FY-2013 and FY-2014. However a significant portion of the loss has been attributed to motion pictures segment.
