BENGALURU:  Indian private FM player Entertainment Network (India) Limited (ENIL) reported 9.1 per cent increase in Total Income from Operations (TIO) in the quarter ended 30 June, 2015 (Q1-2016) to Rs 101.56 crore as compared to the Rs 93.12 crore in Q1-2015, but declined 18.4 per cent as compared to the Rs 124.43 crore in Q4-2015.

The company?s profit after tax (PAT) in the current quarter increased 6.3 per cent to Rs 25.88 crore (25.5 per cent of TIO) as compared to the Rs 24.35 crore (26.2 per cent margin) in Q1-2015 and was 1.5 per cent more than the Rs 25.49 crore (20.5 per cent margin) in Q4-2015.

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

(2) The numbers in this report are consolidated unless stated otherwise.

Let us look at some of the other numbers reported by ENIL

The company?s EBIDTA in Q1-2016 at Rs 35.38 crore (34.8 per cent margin) was 1.8 per cent more than the Rs 34.74 crore (37.3 per cent margin) and was 2.5 per cent more than the Rs 34.53 crore (27.7 per cent margin) in Q4-2015.

ENIL total expense (TE) in Q1-2016 at Rs 74.38 crore (73.2 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2016 was 11.7 per cent more than the Rs 66.58 crore (71.5 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2015, but was 24.2 per cent lower than the Rs 98.10 crore (78.8 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015.

ENIL paid 10 per cent higher license fee in Q1-2016 at Rs 5.11 crore (five per cent of TIO) as compared to the Rs 4.65 crore (five per cent of TIO) in Q1-201, but was 15.3 per cent lower than the Rs 6.03 crore (4.8 per cent of TIO) in the immediate trailing quarter. 

The company?s marketing expense in Q1-2016 at Rs 11.29 crore (11.1 per cent of TIO) was 59.3 per cent more than the Rs 7.09 crore (7.6 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2015, but was a little more than a third (64.5 per cent lower) than the Rs 31.57 crore (25.4 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015.

Employee Benefit Expense (EBE) in Q1-2016 at Rs 22.10 crore (21.8 per cent of TIO) was 8.3 per cent more than the Rs 20.41 crore (21.9 per cent of TIO) in the corresponding quarter of the previous year and was 5.3 per cent more than the Rs 20.98 crore (16.9 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015.

ENIL managing director and CEO Prashant Panday said, ?It?s been a sombre quarter for radio companies, largely on account of the high base of election advertising last year. Overall advertising growth remains satisfactory, though below expectations, possibly because of the sluggish economy. The good news is that Phase-3 auctions have finally started. This will spur new growth in the years to come.?
