In case of Television Eighteen, the company posted profits on a consolidated basis, after eight quarters of investments, as the business was in its gestation phase. According to the industry analysts, the company was not expected to report profit before the second quarter of 2002-3. However, it came out of the red and notched marginal profit of Rs 19.5 lakhs against a loss of Rs 1.48 crores in the previous quarter.
