Q1-2016: Shemaroo revenue up 20% at Rs 78 crore, PAT up 88%

BENGALURU: Indian integrated media content house Shemaroo Entertainment Limited (Shemaroo) reported 20.4 per cent higher consolidated Total Income from Operations (TIO) for the quarter ended 30 June, 2015 (Q1-2016) at Rs 77.63 crore as compared to the Rs 64.49 crore in Q1-2015. However, q-o-q, Shemaroo’s TIO in the current quarter was 10.6 per cent lower than the Rs 86.82 crore in Q4-2015.

Note: (1) 100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10 million = 1 crore

(2) All numbers are consolidated unless stated otherwise.

Shemaroo’s PAT for the current quarter improved 88 per cent at Rs 11.75 crore (15.1 per cent margin) as compared to the Rs 6.25 crore (9.7 per cent margin) in Q1-2015, but eight per cent lower than the Rs 12.77 crore (14.7 per cent margin) in the immediate trailing quarter.

Shemaroo’s EBIDTA including other income at Rs 24.48 crore (31.5 per cent margin) in Q1-2016 was 23.9 per cent more than the Rs 19.75 crore (31.1 per cent margin), but 9.2 per cent lower than the Rs 26.97 crore (31.1 per cent margin) in Q4-2015.

Two Business Divisions contribute to Shemaroo’s numbers – New media and Traditional Media and Services. On a standalone basis, New Media revenue increased by 83.5 per cent to Rs 13.40 crore in Q1-2016 as compared to the Rs 7.30 crore in Q1-2015, while Traditional Media and Services revenue improved by 12.3 per cent to Rs 64.23 crore in Q1-2016 as compared to the Rs 57.19 crore in Q1-2015.

The company’s Total Expenditure (TE) in Q1-2016 at Rs 54.50 crore (70.2 per cent of TIO) was 18.8 per cent more than the Rs 45.89 crore (71.2 per cent of TO) in Q1-2015, but was 10.9 per cent lower than the Rs 61.17 crore (70.5 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015.

The company’s cost of Raw Materials consumed went up by 16.2 times in Q1-2016 to Rs 92.65 crore (119.3 per cent of TIO) as compared to the Rs 5.73 crore (8.9 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2015 and was 3.1 per cent more than the Rs 89.86 crore (103.5 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015. The company would have incurred a heavy loss, but for the fact that changes in inventories of finished goods and work in progress (inventory) had a negative impact and hence reduced TE to the extent of Rs 47.09 crore in the current quarter and Rs 39.18 crore in Q4-2015. Inventory had increased TE by Rs 32.25 crore in Q1-2015.

Employee Benefit Expense (EBE) in Q1-2015 increased 11.4 per cent to Rs 4.58 crore (5.9 percent of TIO) as compared to the Rs 4.11 crore (6.4 per cent of TIO) in the corresponding year ago quarter, but was almost flat (down 0.4 per cent) as compared to the Rs 4.60 crore (5.3 per cent of TIO) in Q4-2015.

Basic and undiluted EPS in Q1-2016 was Rs 4.29, whereas in Q1-2015, it was Rs 5.41 and for Q4-2015, it was Rs 4.82.
