The price of TV Today then rose 6 per cent to Rs 217 on the NSE. Before that, since September 2013, RK Damani had held a 1.5 per cent stake in the TV broadcaster.

TV Today reported a 58.1 per cent y-o-y increase in production costs coupled with a 40.4 per cent increment in employee benefit expense (EBE) and a 36.6 per cent rise in other expense numbers which pared its PAT to register a 2.9 per cent increment in Q2-2015.

Higher TIO in Q1-2015 can be attributed to the national elections that saw revenues of most news channels rise during the first quarter of FY-2015.
