Network 18 PAT at Rs 114 million

MUMBAI: Network18 Media & Investments (Network18) reported a marked improvement in its numbers for the quarter ended 31 December 2017. The consolidated revenue (net of revenue from joint ventures and associates) for the company declined marginally by 1.8 per cent year-on-year (yoy) to Rs 3660 million.

With lower distribution and business promotion expenses, the company reported earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of Rs 77 million as against EBITDA loss of Rs 130 million in Q3FY18. Though other income grew significantly, the decline in EBITDA and higher tax outgo weighed down PAT. The company reported PAT of Rs 114 million against loss of Rs 778 million in the same quarter last year. 

Network18 posted consolidated revenue of Rs 9690 million (including a proportionate share of JVs) in Q3 FY18, a 7 per cent yoy growth. The revival in growth in the broadcasting business was partially offset by a pullback in the TV shopping business.

Media operations revenue (including a proportionate share of JVs) grew by 7.6 per cent yoy to Rs 9595 million. Revenue from film production segment declined by 18.0 per cent yoy to Rs 153 million.

Led by cost control in TV shopping, margins of the broadcasting segment improved, thereby leading to a reduction in EBIT loss for the media operations segment to Rs317 million against EBIT loss of Rs778 million in Q3FY17.
