As per market talk, advertisement revenues are on the downswing due to the poor reception got for Zee's serials and programmes. The second quarter results of the company, in any case, are expected to be disappointing.
Recently, a foreign brokerage house had slashed its earnings estimate and price target for Zee Telefilms due to the continued sluggishness in the advertising market and the dominance of the company's main rivals on television rating points charts.
The advertising revenue growth forecasts for Zee was reduced to 2.6% for the current fiscal. However, the brokerage still maintained its 'buy' recommendation on the Zee stock.
Zee Telefilms' revenues on a standalone basis have been highly impacted by sluggish advertisement revenues. A rise in subscription revenues from overseas, though, has helped Zee Telefilms.
