    Umimpressive results from Pentamedia Graphics

    If there is anything that hampers the valuation of Pentamedia Graphics it is the negative perception of the management. The company derives 58% of its revenues from animation, 19% from special effects and 23% of the turnover from multimedia products.

    (Rs m) 2QFQ00 2QFY01 Change
    Sales 985 1,350 37.1%
    Other Income 40 100 147.5%
    Expenditure 561 914 62.8%
    Operating Profit (EBDIT) 423 436 3.1%
    Operating Profit Margin (%) 43.0% 32.3%  
    Interest 18 (34) -292.7%
    Depreciation 190 112 -40.9%
    Profit before Tax 256 458 78.8%
    Other Adjustments   (200)  
    Tax      
    Profit after Tax/(Loss) 256 258 0.7%
    Net profit margin (%) 26.0% 19.1%  
    Earnings per share* 25.65 25.84  
    (annualised)      

    Even for the record Pentamedia has declared unimpressive results for the quarter ended September 2000. The net profit has stagnated despite a 37% growth in the topline.

    Operating margins have fallen from 42% to 34%. This is partly a result of the fact that Pentamedia became a full fledged animation company in the current year as compared to it being partly a software company last year.

    The stock quotes at Rs 368 which implies an earnings multiple of 14.2 times FY2001 earnings
