Music Broadcast Ltd Chairman Speech

DEAR SHAREHOLDERS,

Globally, the havoc created by the pandemic resulted in enormous challenges that has impacted everyone in FY21. The economy was projected to have contracted by 8% due to COVID-19. While some stability was achieved in the second half of the year, it was again pulled back due to the second wave, which started in the middle of March.

This resulted in various state governments imposing partial lockdowns and restrictions on movement to contain the outbreak.

The resultant outcome is likely to dampen economic activity, however, the impact will be much lower than in 2020, as containment measures become more focused, and households as well as businesses adjust to the 'new normal'. These restrictions are expected to continue in the foreseeable future, especially with the anticipation of the third wave, despite the pickup in vaccinations.

Sectors such as auto, real estate, e-commerce, pharma, food and drinks, which are major contributors to the topline, showed some promise and the industry is seeing an increase in volume contribution and growth, while the government sector has undergone a sharp degrowth. Finance and sports are poised to make a strong comeback, with a slew of IPOs, company results, and major sporting events being lined up.

OUR PERFORMANCE

In line with industry trends, the reduction in advertising spends and shrinkage in revenues across core segments, we saw a de-growth of 49% in revenues to ' 127.6 crores from ' 247.82 crores. To minimise the consequent financial impact, we continued with our cost rationalisation initiatives, which resulted in savings of up to ' 52 crores annually. As a result, our EBITDA stands at ' 3.7 crores, and our net loss reported to be at ' 24.2 crores during the reporting period.

These difficult times were met with well-designed and well executed initiatives, resulting in us not just achieving a 27% cost reduction as compared to FY21, but also an impressive improvement in collection efficiency, collecting ' 48 crores in the quarter. The collection for the years amounted to ' 159 crores. This in turn has led to our cash and cash equivalent's reserves swelling to ' 233 crores as on March 31, 2021.

With regards to our industry ranking, we maintained our leadership with 21% market share in Q4FY21, as well as for the entire FY21. While industry volumes grew 4% y-o-y, we witnessed a volume growth of 11% y-o-y, which also saw 43% of the radio platform advertisers advertising on Radio City - the highest in the industry. The same numbers for the entire year suggest a decline of 24% for the industry, in comparison to a 15% decline for our company.

I am happy to share that, continuing our philosophy of rewarding shareholders, we announced Bonus Non-Convertible Redeemable Preference Share to minority shareholders in the ratio of 10: 1, subject to NCLT approvals.

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 ensured that we are recognised among 'India's Best Workplaces for 7 years.

WAY FORWARD

The second and now the impending third wave of COVID-19 may push back the recovery period for the sector and each media vertical will have different time frames to reach pre-COVID levels. Nevertheless, media companies with strong balance sheets and comfortable liquidity positions as well as businesses have managed their costs prudently as a practice, and those who have internalised valuable lessons in managing crisis last year should be able to weather this second storm better than others.

The last two quarters of FY21 showed a marked improvement in revenues for most segments, and we expect the Media and Entertainment sector to recover 25% in FY21 to reach ' 1.729 billion. Just as with any major world event, the pandemic brought about a drastic shift in trends of content creation and consumption and hence there are newer avenues to tap into, which could lead to significant value unlocking from existing assets, talent pools and infrastructure, while leading us to fresh frontiers and creating substantial value for our stakeholders.

These opportunities come in the form of offering end-to-end digital solutions to our clients, which could be used in an omni-channel mode. Another such avenue includes leveraging the brand equity in the space of influencer marketing through our popular RJs and extensive networks, thereby further adding to our 'created business' portfolio.

Radio will continue its growth trend, which picked up second half onwards and it will grow at 63% from 14.3 billion to 23.3 billion on the back of core radio along with integration of digital, credible influencers and content syndication. All of this, coupled with the restart of other on-ground activities could augur well for us and the industry as a whole, and bring back the buzz and excitement.

Before I conclude, I would like to thank our listeners, advertisers, shareholders, the government, bankers and most importantly the tireless Radio City team, who contributed to our growth story.

I am confident that we will continue to deliver on stakeholder expectations and live up to the trust reposed in us.

Warm regards

VIJAY TANDON
