Commenting on the performance of the company, Mahendra Mohan Gupta, Chairman and Managing Director, JPL said, “After two consecutive quarters of de-growth, this quarter witnessed some growth in advertisement revenue. We were also able to pass part of increase in newsprint price to the readers in majority of our areas of operation, but there were still some areas where it could not be possible due to the competitors not agreeing to our proposal of increasing cover prices. We expect spike in growth in H2."

"Digital, Outdoor and Radio businesses deserve special mention as these performed incredibly well and cumulatively contributed significantly to the company’s profit. I hope that we will end the current fiscal with the expected growth in profits achieved at the back of higher per copy realisation coupled with high single digit growth in advertisement revenues of print business in addition to double digit growth in the above referred businesses," Gupta added.
