Music Broadcast Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Shareholders,

The financial year 2017-18 was eventful, as India's macroeconomic sentiment remained optimistic for most of the year. The country's GDP grew by 6.7% during FY 2017-18 and powered ahead by 7.7% in the fourth quarter, after the twin impacts of remonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) implementation began to wane. If we take a broad perspective, even with this sluggish pace, the 4-year average GDP growth has been 7.3%, the highest among the world's major economies. With rapid GST implementation and consistent focus on solving the issues related to non-performing assets of banks, the economy is heading towards enhanced momentum.

Supported by favourable demographics, improving performance of several advertiser sectors and a huge demand for information and knowledge, India's Media and Entertainment (M&E) sector is seeing an interesting change. The reach of media is expanding signi3cantly. This is not only driven by traditional media like television, radio and print, but also by the digital evolution. Media consumption is growing exponentially, based on growing choices and rising opportunities of access; with consumers consuming the content of their choice, at the place of their choice, in the language of their choice and at the time of their choice. India's M&E industry is expected to grow by 11.6% CAGR to touch Rs.2 trillion by 2021 from Rs.1.5 trillion (US$ 22.75 billion) in 2017. The country remains one of the highest spending and fastest growing advertising markets globally. India's advertising expenditure is expected to grow at 12.1%.

OUR PERFORMANCE

During FY 2017-18, we grew by 10% with revenues of Rs.298.24 crore vis--vis Rs.271.42 crore in the previous year. As a result, our EBITDA increased to Rs.97.09 crore in FY 2017-18 from Rs.91.25 crore last year. The operating margins stood at 33% vis--vis 34% in FY 2016-17, with a 1% margin dip attributable to Phase III investments.

10

During FY 2017-18, we grew by 10% with revenues of Rs.298.24 crore vis--vis Rs.271.42 crore in the previous year.

72 %

With the acquisition of Friends 91.9 FM, our coverage has increased from 62% to 72% of the FM population (subject to MIB approvals).

(Source: IRS Q4 2012, Census 2011 & Radio City Extrapolation)

The net pro3t reported Rs.51.72 crore against Rs.36.66 crore reported last year, a 41% escalation.

We continue to adhere to our strategy of widening our reach in this Phase of FM's expansion. Our aim is to be present across all relevant markets of the country to attract quality advertisers and thus sustain our leadership by reaching out to more audiences. Our focus on content innovation has paved the way to reinforce our leadership position across markets. We have a portfolio of 39 radio stations, excluding the recently acquired Friends 91.9 FM in Kolkata (subject to MIB approvals). This acquisition was done with a view to be present in the markets where Radio City is yet to make a difference. With this acquisition, our coverage has increased from 62% to 72% of the FM population (subject to MIB approvals) (Source: IRS Q4 2012, Census 2011 & Radio City Extrapolation). We are con3dent that tying up with a brand like ‘Friends FM', which has a strong local team, supported by our national presence will bene3t us in creating EPS-accretive opportunities. The stations acquired under Phase III policy are operationalised and have started contributing to the revenue and also have achieved EBITDA breakeven in FY 2017-18 Q4. Our presence across Tier I, II and III cities serves various national and local advertisers as well as various sectors of the industry.

We also have a digital presence with 51 web radio stations, present across 10 languages with over 800 playlists and approximately 40 million streams. (Source: Lasopi & Purple Stream). We have our web presence across www.radiocity.in and hindi.radiocity.in. To make the radio experience more experimental, we launched VideoCity last year, which offers a range of customised programmes comprising celebrity interviews, viral videos, live studio, traffic updates, curated playlists and much more. We believe in understanding the choices and preferences of our listeners and localising our content to suit listenership habits. This has helped us maintain leadership in several markets. We have been ranked No. 1 in Mumbai, Pune, Ahmednagar, Bengaluru, Baroda, Surat, Jaipur, Delhi, Lucknow, Nagpur, Vizag, Gorakhpur, Hisar and Karnal (Source: AZ Research, TG 12+, Period - March 18 Weekly Listenership). A recent research report commissioned by MBL entitled ‘Power of Radio', highlighted radio as having the second-highest ad-attention, compared to all other media. Thus, in terms of ad effectiveness, radio ads were the second most-effective in driving purchase intent. Radio, as a medium, also turned out to be the most trusted and credible information source with RJs being key in3uencers amongst their listeners.

After the success of Tamil, Kannada and Telugu Cine Awards, Radio City extended its IP into Marathi, Bhojpuri and Punjabi markets with cumulatively over 2 crore votes, making Cine awards a grand hit amongst listeners. Radio City Freedom Awards 5.0, which honours and celebrates the essence of independent music across genres and languages, was executed with 13 LIVE gigs in 10 languages across 8 cities and garnered 864 entries and 16,000 votes.

RADIO CITY TEAM

We believe that operational excellence is achieved through a continuous emphasis on processes, research and best-in-class people practices. Our focus on people has ensured that we are one of the best places to work at across industries, and the employer of choice in the media industry. We believe in building an experienced team, which delivers industry-leading performance. In order to improve the skill sets of our employees, we conduct various training programmes and focus on developing talent for the radio industry.

SOCIAL COMMITMENT

We are helping build an empowered society through educational and vocational training, to assist children associated with orphanages and blind schools gain sustainable employment. In FY 2017-18, we contributed Rs.1.03 crore towards our CSR initiatives, primarily in the form of financial aid to organisations, such as Happy Home and School for the Blind and Saath Charitable Trust.

WAY FORWARD

To further increase the penetration of radio, in December 2017, the Cabinet gave its approval for the e-auction of Batch 3 of private FM radio Phase III. Under this batch, the Government was expected to auction 683 radio frequencies in 236 smaller cities, thus becoming an alternative local medium with an increased listener base. The industry is also working on implementing its own measurement across 21 cities, pilots of which are expected to begin in 2018.

Going with the brand philosophy, Rag Rag Mein Daude City, our strategy is to remain as local as possible across markets and also become the most in3uential FM network in the country. The radio industry is bound to see faster growth compared to the traditional medium for several years to come as it moves from its nascent stage to a more mature one. As a leader, we expect to bene3t from this fast-paced growth and expand our market share even further. Before I conclude, I would like to thank our advertisers, shareholders, government, bankers and most importantly our Radio City team, who have contributed to our growth story. I am con3dent that Radio City will continue to deliver on stakeholder expectations and live up to the trust reposed in it.

Warm regards,

VIJAY TANDON
