Half Year ended September 30, 2019

Advertisement revenue stood at ₹819 (H1FY19 – ₹942) million. Average advertisement minutes sold per show per screen stood at 4.45 (H1FY19 – 4.77) minutes.

“Corporate advertisement revenue performed broadly in line with the in-cinema advertising industry, however Government advertisement category remained weak during the quarter” said Kapil Agarwal, Joint Managing Director. “EBITDA was under pressure during the quarter on account of a weak Government advertisement performance, planned D-Cinema sunset impact and relatively weaker E-Cinema VPF performance. We reported Net Loss of ₹35 Mn during the quarter owing to one-time write down of net deferred tax assets of ₹126 Mn. Despite short term slowdown, we remain positive about the future and continue to make strides in improving advertisement revenues.”
