PVR announces results for quarter ended june 30, 2019

MUMBAI: PVR Limited today announced its unaudited standalone and consolidated financial results for the quarter ended 30th June, 2019.

The revenues for quarter ended June 2019 were Rs 887 crores as compared to Rs 701 crores during the corresponding period of last year, witnessing a growth of 27 per cent.

Consolidated PAT for the quarter was Rs 18 crores as compared to Rs. 52 crores during the corresponding period of last year.

During the current quarter company transitioned to new accounting standard on leases - Ind AS 116.

After adjusting for impact of this new accounting standard the Consolidated Revenue, EBITDA, EBITDA margin and PAT of the company would have been Rs 887 crores, Rs. 165 crores, 18.6% and Rs. 44 crores respectively. This would represent a revenue and EBITDA growth of 27% and 17% respectively.

The box office revenues for the quarter were up by 19% from Rs. 385 crores to Rs 457 crores led by a 19% growth in admits. F&B revenues were up by 29% from Rs 205 crores to Rs 263 crores. Advertising revenues witnessed robust growth of 28% increasing to Rs 92 crores, up from Rs. 72 crores in Q1 last year.

The company intends to add a total of 80-100 screens in FY 2019-2020.

Commenting on the results and performance, Mr. Ajay Bijli, Chairman cum Managing Director, PVR Ltd said “We are extremely pleased with the performance of the business for Q1 FY 19-20 with strong all round performance of content at the box office despite two big cricketing events, IPL and World Cup, taking place during the same period. This truly reflects the strength of the cinema as a medium for entertainment, especially during a period when the consumer is spoilt for choice in terms of modes available to him to consume content. This give us conviction to continue with our growth plans and keep innovating to provide a better movie watching experience to our consumers.”
