Umimpressive results from Pentamedia Graphics

Oct 20, 2000

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.

Other Adjustments (200)
Profit after Tax/(Loss) 256 258 0.7%
Net profit margin (%)26.0%19.1%
Earnings per share*25.6525.84

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
