A double-digit upward swing in ad spends, as per early estimates this year, bodes well for ZMCL, especially when the corporation is charting a clutter bursting path to set itself apart from the commoditised content ecosystem. Our path breaking content propositions, which are finding expression in our evolved programming across channels, are bound to create an unmatched viewer vibrancy that will surely interest the ad vibrant sectors. At ZMCL, we have been quick to adapt to current global trends and tap newer and disruptive opportunities of growth anytime anywhere. A step in this direction is our focus on native communication that has helped us defy industry gravity and diversify our revenue risk. I am hopeful that we will continue to find new avenues of growth and sustain the competitive advantage that we have built over years.”

ZMCL COO Rajendra Kumar Arora added, “ZMCL is an industry pioneer having perfected the art of driving operational efficiencies. It has been our constant endeavour to define and follow processes. As the industry slowly realises the relevance of technology in driving down costs, we at ZMCL have been at the forefront of using cutting-edge technology as an enabler in optimising expenditure. While we are innovatively experimenting with content and investing in it to generate impact, we are confident of maintaining a robust bottomline as we go ahead. The fact that we have been able to garner more

eyeballs will, in near future, also provide an impetus to topline. Our improved EBITDA margins point to synergy in operations.”
