“UFO’s advertisement performance during the quarter and full-year was weak primarily on account of lower government spending. Additionally, the shutdown of operations in mid of March due to the Covid2019 pandemic impacted total revenues including corporate advertising. This has severely impacted the overall profitability of the a,” said joint managing director Kapil Agarwal.

He adds, “To conserve cash, we have implemented cost optimisation strategies. The company's liquidity position remains comfortable to sustain during this challenging phase. We are awaiting the government’s decision to reopen cinemas that is likely to take place in the third phase of unlocking based on the situation. Post-re-opening, we expect slow recovery as social distancing will impact cinema footfalls until the situation normalises. However, we are optimistic that UFO will emerge stronger at the end of this crisis.”
