The company has been partially successful in selling off a few of its radio stations to Entertainment Network India Limited (ENIL, Radio Mirchi) and has also recently signed on ENIL on to hawk ads for its three remaining stations.

(a) 100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10,000,000 = 10 million = 1 crore.

(b) 10,000 lakh = 100 crore = 1 arab = 1 billion.
