Sab TV to ramp up focus on broadcast, publication

The Board of Directors of Sri Adhikari Brothers Television Network at its meeting on August 28, 2014 reviewed the proposal to realign the business verticals of the Network with a view to unlock the value created in broadcasting and allied business, create greater financing flexibility and offer investors opportunity to benefit from sector-focussed business entities.

In a filing to the BSE, Sri Adhikari Brothers stated that favourable market and competitive dynamics have opened up opportunities for the Group to accelerate growth in its various business verticals.

Commenting on the proposal made by the management to the Board, Markand Adhikari, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Sri Adhikari Brothers Television Network said, “In the last few years, the company has strengthened its content business and ventured into broadcasting business by launching niche category TV channels and also forayed into allied businesses in publication and event management.”

He further said, “Foreseeing the change business would undergo with penetration of Internet and Government plans to unleash remote connectivity through digital platform, the company believes that it is the right time to venture into new age technology.”

The Board has considered the proposal to consolidate the broadcasting business into TV Vision, hitherto a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company to enable direct participation of the shareholders, while continuing with management control.

The Board also approved consolidating the publication business under the company and the subsequent demerger of the publication business as vested into the company to Marvick Entertainment (to be changed to public company).

This restructuring will result in the creation of two more listed entities where existing shareholders would become shareholders in same proportion to their holding in Sab TV.
