Jul 19, 2000

Television 18 has surpassed the projections it made at the time of its IPO in December'99. The company has reported a net profit of Rs 198 m on a turnover of Rs 236.3 m for the nine month period ended June 2000.

Interest on IPO application money which amounts to almost 59% of its pre–tax profit is partly responsible for the growth at the net level.

However, even if one were to adjust for this, the company would have achieved a net profit of over Rs 130 m on an annualised basis. This implies an earning multiple of 58 times at the current price of Rs 710.
