Network18's fourth quarter net profit rises 58% YoY at Rs 61 cr;  13% reduction on TV

In addition, the JioCinema OTT app (currently owned by RPPMSL) will be transferred to Viacom18.

Network18 Media & Investments on Tuesday detailed 58.1 percent year-on-year surge in its combined net benefit to over Rs 61 crore during Q4FY22. The media organization detailed a 14.6 percent year-on-year ascend in solidified income from operations to over Rs 1,621 crore. News business (TV and advanced) conveyed a sharp improvement in yearly benefit, while entertainment business kept up with solid margins in spite of a move forward in investments. In late April, Reliance and Viacom18 had declared an essential partnership with Bodhi Tree Systems – – a foundation of James Murdoch’s Lupa Systems and Uday Shankar – – to shape one of the biggest TV and digital streaming companies in India.

Given the importance of distribution reach in a highly cluttered and competitive digital landscape, this partnership will allow Viacom18 to reach out to India’s largest mobile and broadband user base.

The investment will enable utilisation of a large smartphone and JioPhone user base for advertising and driving subscription revenue for premium contents.

“FY22 was a remarkable year, not only from the perspective of numbers, but in terms of building a strong foundation on which the business can continue to grow for the foreseeable future,” said Adil Zainulbhai, Chairman, Network18, while announcing the results.

“The financial performance has vindicated our decision of investing in new businesses a few years ago which have started showing encouraging positive results. In a similar vein, we have set ourselves an ambitious target to become a leading player in the digital space while strengthening our core TV offering,” Zainulbhai added.

Meanwhile, TV18 Broadcast too announced its Q4 earnings on Tuesday, reporting a 13.4 per cent year-on-year fall in consolidated net profit at Rs 146 crore for the quarter ended March 31.

The broadcasting company’s consolidated revenue rose 11 per cent year-on-year to Rs 1,496 crore during the quarter under review.

“Ad revenues had a pulsating journey, with strong growth during the year bookended by events which impacted the growth. The year began with the second pandemic wave sweeping across the country, slowing down the growth momentum which had begun in the second half of the last fiscal,” it said. However, increasing inflation, further worsened by the Russia-Ukraine conflict, impacted consumer demand and consequently the advertising spends, it added.
