“The last twelve months have been extremely challenging for the entire industry on account of one-off events like demonetization and implementation of GST, especially the media sector which was most severely impacted,” said Sanjay Gaikwad, Founder and Managing Director. “Q2FY18 was one of our toughest quarters, advertisement revenues declined sharply on a high base of last year combined with slowdown in Government advertisement spends. Nevertheless, we continue to remain extremely positive about the long-term growth prospects of the advertising business.We are hopeful that demand will pick up in few months. Temporary slowdown has failed to deter us and we remain focused on achieving our long-term strategic goals by entering into a Scheme of Arrangement and Amalgamation with Qube Cinema Technologies Pvt.
