Commenting on the company’s Q1 FY12 performance, Mahendra Mohan Gupta, Jagran Prakashan Ltd, said, “The company performed satisfactorily in competitive environment. It registered high growth in circulation of all the six print brands of the Group. Other businesses, especially activation too performed incredibly. However, growth in advertisement was subdued due to slowdown in national advertising, lower than expected growth in education sector and strategic decision not to offer steep discounts as desired by a few advertisers.”
