Prannoy Roy promoted New Delhi Television has reported Rs 2.7 crore profit after tax and before ESOP in Q1 ’07. The company made 54 per cent YOY growth in revenues for Q1 ’07 at Rs 64 crore as compared to Rs 41.5 crore in the same quarter in the previous year.

EBITDA for Q1 is at Rs 8.17 crore, compared to Rs 4.26 crore in the same quarter of previous year, a growth of 92 per cent.

The news network in a statement said that it had added 75 first time advertisers and 175 new brands this quarter, taking the total brand and advertising universe to 2,261.

It is the first channel launched by NDTV generating news that is not India-related and is specifically for viewers of that country.

“Our news network’s leadership in an environment of increasing competition reflects the strength and credibility of the NDTV brand and the trust our viewers place in us.
