Advertising revenues grew from Rs.112 crores to Rs 122 crores, up by 8% in spite of challenging business environment on media spends by companies.

The company has aggressively expanded its screen portfolio in the current financial year by adding 67 new screens across 11 properties and now operates a network of 825 screens spread over 173 properties in 71 cities across the country.

Commenting on the results and performance,  Ajay Bijli, Chairman and Managing Director, PVR Ltd said “The operating and financial performance of the business for Q3 has been robust amidst difficult macro-economic conditions. The box office performance has been satisfactory with a strong performance from Bollywood and Hollywood film industry. The performance of the regional film industry, specifically Tamil and Telugu, however, has been below par in the current quarter resulting in muted growth in our overall box office performance. This truly reflects the strength of our business model and our strategy for a wide geographical distribution of our cinema footprint where we have reduced our dependence on any one film industry or region. Our operating performance on all other parameters remains strong and we continue to innovate and identify areas where we can serve our customers better. Our screen opening outlook remains strong and we are on track to open 90-100 new screens in the current financial year.”
