Commenting on the results, Apurva Purohit, Director, said: “Our company delivered a robust topline growth of 14% in Q4. The growth was majorly contributed by Phase III stations in terms of volume and by legacy stations in terms of yields. We reported margin of 36% for the quarter and 32.6% for the year end 2018, much better than expectations and infact maintained consistent margins of above 30% in all the four quarters despite a tough year and Phase III investments. This was on the back of a volume growth of 8%; higher than the Industry growth of 5%, thereby gaining 1% market share for Radiocity.”

“Our Phase III stations have seen a breakeven for Q4 much before our estimates and they will have a meaningful contribution to the EBITDA in the quarters to come. Our legacy stations are running at a healthy utilization levels. This gives us confidence that our strategy of being focussed will continue to deliver better than industry shareholder returns,” she added.
