Advertising revenues grew from Rs 112 crore to Rs 122 crore, up by 8  per cent in spite of challenging business environment on media spends by companies.

Commenting on the results and performance, PVR Ltd chairman and managing director Ajay Bijli said, “The operating and financial performance of the business for Q3has been robust amidst difficult macro-economic conditions. The box office performance has been satisfactory with strong performance from Bollywood and Hollywood film industry. The performance of the regional film industry, specifically Tamil and Telugu, however, has been below par in the current quarter resulting in muted growth in our overall box office performance. This truly reflects the strength of our business model and our strategy for a wide geographical distribution of our cinema footprint where we have reduced our dependence on any one film industry or region. Our operating performance on all other parameters remains strong and we continue to innovate and identify areas where we can serve our customers better. Our screen opening outlook remain strong and we are on track to open 90-100 new screens in the current financial year.”
