The NCLT, vide its order dated November 21, 2019 sanctioned the Scheme for demerger of Caravan division of VDSPL with the Company with effect from April 1, 2019 (the Appointed date). 

The Scheme became effective from December 4, 2019.

“The new brand identity which we rolled out in December 2019 has received positive feedback from advertisers and it positions us strongly for the future” said UFO Moviez joint managing director Kapil Agarwal. “On the business front, the slowdown in the economy is posing challenges, resulting in weak revenues in both Corporate and Government advertisement segments. Despite short-term challenges, we are optimistic about the future and continue to focus on driving advertisement revenues. We are confident that our continued efforts will help in delivering sustainable growth and shareholder value.”
