Segment results

The company has two main segments – Television broadcasting (TV) and Radio broadcasting (Radio) – it currently three runs radio stations under the brand Oye FM 104.8 at New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. 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. Probably, the results of this association will start showing over the next few quarters.

Note: The unit of currency in this report is the Indian rupee - Rs (also conventionally represented by INR). The Indian numbering system or the Vedic numbering system has been used to denote money values. The basic conversion to the international norm would be:

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

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