16 CHAIRMAN S STATEMENT Sarfaroshi ki tamanna Ab hamaare dil main hai. These are the words that inspired a nation and created one of the biggest Motion Picture hits of the decade. Rang De Basanti epitomizes the UTV brand in so many ways - unconventional, breaking the mould and that it takes a bold few to make a paradigm shift in the way we think. Rang De Basanti is a superb mix of content meeting commerce. It pushed the envelope in story telling, marketing innovation and affected the lives of ordinary people in extra ordinary ways. Rang De inspired the youth of India to realize the power of an individual voice, to realize that each of us can make a difference belongs to Rang De Basanti. More than ever Rang De Basanti underscores our belief that great Content is the core of any media business. At UTV, Content drives everything. It drives the success of our 20-monthold kids channel Hungama TV. It drives our Movie Productions in India and around the world. It drives our Animation business as we strive to create animation content for the global market. It drives our TV Content business as we conceptualize and create winning and high ratings shows for broadcasters. It is with great pleasure that we welcome a strategic investor. If there is ever a brand in the world that demonstrates that Content is King and great content makes a great company, it is The Walt Disney Company. As this investment consummates over the next few months, post regulatory approvals I am positive that your Company will enter a new phase of growth and strengthen its Multi Revenue Integrated model by exploring synergies in Animation, Movies and TV Content with Disney. HIGHLIGHTS OF FY Television : Over 16 years, we have demonstrated stability in a business known for its ups and downs. While we continue to create winning Content for multiple broadcasters in the widest of genres our Airtime Sales business in the South of India has gone up 5 times. Animation : For the first time, we built a significant order book for work spanning from TV Content to films made for Home Video. On the back of this we invested into a state-of-the-art 3-D facility bringing it to a 250 seater and we are poised to grow as we diversify this business from service work to creating original Content for TV as well as feature films. We will build on our synergies with Disney to create an even more robust animation model with huge potential for backend revenues from merchandising and licensing. Broadcasting : Many were skeptical of us starting a kids channel against deep pocket global media companies and in a niche segment. However, with our core competence in high TRP local Content and keen understanding of the kids space, we made Hungama TV into the #2 kids channel in just 20 months. While we move to exit this asset and help Disney integrate it into their bouquet I believe we have created true shareholder value through our creation of Hungama TV. We hope to continue to be a favored programme supplier to Hungama TV and the Disney family. Movies : This year UTV was the second largest contributor to the Hindi movie box office and ancillary rights. We distributed worldwide widely acclaimed films like Parineeta, Bluff Master and Taxi and ended the year with one of the biggest blockbusters and highest grossers of all time Rang De Basanti - which till date spurs Indians to light a candle to show their solidarity. However, we had two dud releases in the third quarter of the year that created a significant dent on the Company s bottom line. Overall though, this has been a constructive year for us, having matured our worldwide distribution model as also our Home Video Division. We have also worked to build a stable and long-term slate of movies that will show 14

17 UTV Software Communications Ltd. up in your Company s revenue from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 but will firmly establish our Studio model during with a strong slate of multiple releases every quarter. Financial Results : We recorded a healthy growth in our top line. On our profitability we had a serious setback in the third quarter of this fiscal due to our two movies under distribution that turned out to be duds at the Box Office. Were it not for that, your Company would have shown an upward trend at profitability levels too. Your Company continues to grow its international operations and increase the mix of global revenues. This year we poised good results in our overseas subsidiaries partly due to the focused growth of our movies distribution worldwide and partly due to our successful syndication of our acquired libraries of Hollywood movies. OVERVIEW Brand UTV : This year has seen UTV s brand grow in reach, recognition and respect for multiple reasons - Our business model took us up the value chain in Broadcasting and Movies putting the brand in direct touch with the consumer. The success and impact of Rang De Basanti and the popularity of Hungama TV have contributed greatly. Worldwide Our brand is on our content in theatres, Home Video & TV. I believe, today, our brand also stands for being one of the best Catalysts for Creativity and one of the strongest combinations in the industry for bringing commerce & creativity together and that reflects the maturity at the top level of our management team. It s this that attracts the best talent in the country to associate with us in movies or TV and us with them. In a very fast changing world, especially in media & technology, we at UTV embrace a culture that thrives on change, as change shuns complacency, forces the organization to think out-of-the-box and push the envelope. We have many-a-times chosen the path less trodden and have found great success and sometimes have been lost but always-found new horizons, priceless learning for the future. Our BRAND represents our CULTURE and our CULTURE, our BRAND. India Shining : The Indian Media & Entertainment industry is clearly one of the brighter stars in the Indian galaxy while we as a country are moving towards Developed Nation status by Lets look at the shining elements in our sector. The Motion Picture industry has the propensity to double its base in the next 2-3 years. The key things going for it Domestic Theatrical revenues are close to doubling as ticket prices go up in multiplexes International revenues have also shown huge increase and will grow as those territories offer multiple exploitation platforms after theatrical is over. Home Video will become a very significant contributor to increased revenues as consumers choose to watch big screen content, more and more on the small screen and astute content creators will evaluate the rising multiple revenue streams and look to the model where the sum of the parts is larger than the whole. Almost every media major in the world is viewing India in their growth story going forward and so the right mix of equity, migration of best practices and business models, transfer of technology, focus to take Indian content global, and bringing scale to businesses will also make larger and stronger Indian corporations with a world view evolve. Broadcasting has grown from almost zero to a USD 4 billion industry in less than 12 years and now DTH coupled with Telecom companies resolving the last mile crisis will completely shake up the revenue model for the industry, hitherto mostly dependent on Advertising revenues and low declared subscription bases. The Direct to Customer and pay for Multiple Services will bring in new revenues and recast everyone s business model. Content is becoming more and more important and valuable as the streams of revenues grow and syndication income brings in more revenue than even the first cycle exploitation. In Television, it s time for content creators to hold on to their IPR and change the business model with broadcasters. In Movies, the Studio model, where all rights are retained and not sold is the model of the future and will create huge value for those who hold onto their rights, sometimes with short-term compromises for long-term gain. 15

18 The viewer, who for all these years got content literally free 150 cable channels for Rs 75; to Rs 50 for a movie ticket; to DVD at home pirated for the evening for Rs 20, is now changing and willing to and is being lured to pay for the content he consumes but with a superior model, service or product In DTH, in Home Video, in multiplexes, in mobile content and more the consumer has started to pay for what he consumes and all this will flow to the bottom line of those savvy corporations who create, aggregate content and hold onto their models. True wealth creation will come with this value generator and that s one of the main reasons your Company has focused its energies in content creation in all forms as well as building its own distribution platforms in order to retain the value and rights to its content. GOING FORWARD Focus Areas : For all the reasons I have stated above, your Company s focus will be on the most lucrative segment and the highest value creator Content Creation, coupled with establishing and strengthening distribution platforms for our content so that we remain at the highest end of the Value Chain; stay in direct touch with the end consumer and retain the rights in perpetuity for our content. Our Content will continue to include television, film, animation as well as new technology & interactive. Distribution platforms will include all forms that take content to our consumer at home or in a public place. Our focus will also be to grow our International revenues while strengthening our domestic base and I believe we are very well poised for this with our existing model and strong global relationships. Scale : Building scale and size will be one of your Company s key goals in the next 2-3 years. We see scale coming from - - Growing our international operations where we have taken the lead in Indian companies in areas like syndication of content as well as having the biggest lineup of co-productions with Hollywood majors. - Our End-to-end Movie Studio model demonstrating a slate plus scale and value creation and retention - Harnessing new technologies to our content strengths and creating partnerships. - Forging alliances and synergies with our global customers as also our strategic investor in all aspects of our business. Long-term value v/s Q on Q profitability : During the next six to eight quarters, your Company and its management team will be focused on building long-term value for UTV and its shareholders. Our eye and focus will be to build scale, to invest and build a global business, to take long-term calls on creating content and retaining its IPR when in conflict with Q on Q profits, to build a brand with the consumer that will accord a premium to the content coming out of UTV. And I believe there is no better time than NOW for your Company to do that as it is on the cusp of scaling up its own business model as the industry is on the cusp of some scalable opportunities as we embrace a strategic investor that is one of the biggest brands in Media & Entertainment in the world. IN CONCLUSION Our Mission Statement tells you clearly what s on the mind of our over 500 Strong UTV Team in three continents. That s what we need to kindle and that s what we need to stay focused on. Your Company faces as many challenges as it faces opportunities and I am proud to lead a team of seasoned professionals, with deep knowledge of the Media & Entertainment space and who share the passion, the drive and the culture that brand UTV represents. To them, to our customers and our partners I say Thank You for your continued support in the years ahead. Ronnie Screwvala 16

34 MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OVERVIEW UTV Software Communications Limited (UTV) is a leading integrated media and entertainment company with business interests in products and services associated with Television, Films, Animation and Broadcasting. UTV was incorporated in 1990 as a private company and was primarily engaged in the production of television content for Doordarshan and production of ad films. In 1992, UTV became one of the largest content providers to Zee TV. In 1995, it launched India s first daily soap titled Shanti on Doordarshan. UTV expanded its operations by setting up state-of-the-art post-production and computer graphic facilities. It was one of the first entities to venture into animation content production. Its subsequent foray into the film business and into broadcasting helped UTV achieve its objective of becoming a fully integrated media and entertainment company. UTV completed its Initial Public Offering in March It is now one of the largest producers of television programming in the country and one of the few corporate entities in film-making and theatrical distribution in India. UTVs broadcasting initiative includes a TV channel called Hungama TV, which is a general entertainment channel for the age group of Broadly UTV Group s operations are divided into: Movies, Television, Allied services and Broadcasting. Movies UTV is one of the pioneers of the studio model in India and has produced several blockbuster movies such as Chalte Chalte, Fiza. Swades, Lakshya and a film that has revolutionized movie-making in India - Rang De Basanti. UTV is also a leading distributor of Indian films worldwide. Some of the films it has distributed include Lagaan, Mission Kashmir, Swades, Lakshya, Sarfarosh, Hyderabad Blues, Mughal-E- Azam (color version), Parineeta, Viruddh, Bluffmaster and Taxi No Its distribution network spans the national and international level reaching 13,500 screens in India and 47,300 screens overseas. Television Content Production: UTV is one of the pioneers in television content production in India having started over 15 years ago. It has successfully demonstrated multi-genre, multi-lingual and multi-channel capabilities not only across India but also Asia. Some of the popular television programs produced by UTV are Shararat, Bhabhi, Shanno Ki Shaadi, Special Squad, Snakes and Ladders, Shanti, Hip Hip Hurray, Sanya, Hero, Bombay Talking, Bollywood Inc, Business Bytes and Back to the Floor. Airtime Sales: UTV has a decade old relationship for the marketing of airtime on state owned broadcaster Doordarshan and the largest broadcaster in the regional space, the Sun Network. UTV operates as a quasi-broadcaster. The Company also has strong relationships with regional content producers and its client base includes over 100 advertising agencies and media buyers. Dubbing: The Dubbing division was started in 1992 and it today has a talent bank of over 500 voices across genres and languages. It has dubbed Hollywood blockbusters like Titanic, Independence Day and the Star Wars Trilogy. The Company provides dubbing services for television content to large international players like Disney, National Geographic Channel, The History Channel and various other Star Network channels. Animation: With a vast English-speaking manpower base, presence of well-equipped animation studios, low cost of production services and a large entertainment sector, India is well poised to become a global animation hub. Among the early entrants in 1998 into the fast growing animation segment, UTV is now well positioned to ride the impending boom with investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure based in Mumbai. Its current order book consists of 30 episode TV series, 15 DVD features and 1 theatrical feature film. Allied Services UTV has state-of-art integrated post-production and SFX facilities that gives it an edge in this segment. Its business areas include Ad films (Idea Cellular, Hutch, Tata Safari), films for post-production and special effects (SFX) and music videos. SFX and digitization of films are key growth areas in this segment and there also exists high potential of adopting an outsourcing model for overseas studios. This division provides post-production services to television software houses, private producers and advertisers. Broadcasting In September 2004, UTV launched India s first local kids channel titled Hungama TV through United Home Entertainment Ltd, promoted jointly by UTV and UTV promoters. Targeted at kids in the age group 4-14, the channel aims at providing an entertaining mix of animation and local live action content.

Hungama TV entered into a Business Cooperation 32

35 UTV Software Communications Limited Agreement with a leading DTH player in South East Asia, Astro Measat. As per this agreement Hungama TV will assist Astro in launching two kids channels in Indonesia and Malaysia and provide its content expertise in line with Hungama TV formats. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW The Indian Media and Entertainment Industry has out-performed the Indian economy and is one of the fastest growing industries in India. With an increase in disposable incomes and hence in consumer spending the industry is expected to continue on its high growth trajectory in the near future. The size of the Media and Entertainment industry in India is estimated at Rs 353 billion for 2005 and is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 19 percent over the next five years. (Source: FICCI PWC report March 2006) Advertising revenues form the backbone of the Television broadcasting industry. Indian advertising spend as a percentage of GDP is far lower than those in other developed and developing countries. The potential for growth in advertisement revenues can be gauged from the fact that if India was to reach the global average of ad spend to GDP ratio, the advertising revenues would have to at least double from the current advertisement revenues that are estimated at Rs 132 billion in The low levels of TV penetration also provide an opportunity for growth in the television segment. Addressability through Conditional Access System (CAS) and Direct-to-home (DTH) will contribute to the growth in subscription revenues. Also new modes of distribution like Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and value added services like Pay-per-view (PPV) and Video-on-demand (VOD) would further boost subscription-based revenues. The Filmed Entertainment industry estimated at Rs 68 billion in 2005 is expected to grow to Rs 153 billion in 2010 (Source: FICCI PWC report March 2006). Probably the biggest factor expected to contribute to this growth is the growth of multiplexes. A number of multiplexes are being set up all over the country and various initiatives are being taken to digitize existing cinema halls. These would result in movies getting a much wider release in the first week itself thus reducing the ill effects of piracy considerably on the film industry. The other area that is expected to grow considerably is Home Entertainment that currently forms only a miniscule percentage of a film s revenues. With technological advancements and the growing penetration of mobiles, personal computers, laptops and the Internet, segments like animation, mobile entertainment, Internet advertising and gaming are witnessing unprecedented growth. These emerging segments, though still at nascent stages of development, have tremendous potential and are waiting to be explored by players in the entertainment arena. BUSINESS STRATEGY Television In the television space the focus is to continue to produce shows in both the fiction as well as non-fiction space. The Company has been and will continue to focus on multi-lingual and multi-genre programming. The Company will also continue to concentrate on the South markets through its Acquisition & Sales business on the Sun Network channels. Film Production The Company will continue to focus on the high quality standards in film production that it has maintained all these years. The Company is increasingly looking to reduce its dependence on film distribution, which it considers far more risky than film production. The company would continue to co-produce films with key talent from the industry apart from producing films on its own by associating with the best talent available. The Company is also looking at film production in South India and at developing full length animated features in the near future. The Company is also actively pursuing the home entertainment space in films, which is expected to be a key area of growth in the years to come. The Company is planning to launch a premium product in Home Entertainment to tap the market potential in this area. Organic and Inorganic Growth The Company is looking to expand through both organic and inorganic modes. Apart from an increase in the scale of operations, the Company is exploring opportunities for expansion in existing and new businesses through the mergers and acquisitions route. OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS The Company has a diversified business model in media and entertainment sector with its revenues coming from various segments across various levels of the media and entertainment 33

36 value chain. With operations in various geographical locations in the world, the Company is well placed to cash in on opportunities in the growing media and entertainment space. The diversified business model of the Company provides scalability apart from spreading the risk profile of the overall business. The key focus areas of the Company continue to be in its key areas of (a) Television content and broadcasting services, (b) Film Production and Distribution and (c) Animation production and services. The post production and SFX business of the Company will compliment the above focus areas of the Company with captive usage while inviting significant external businesses. The Company is well poised to take advantage of opportunities in the media and entertainment sector in India. In the movies segment, the growth of multiplexes in the country is expected to change the dynamics of film distribution in India. Also with the increasing penetration of DVD players in the country, Home Entertainment is expected to be the next big thing in the film industry. Digitization has also resulted in greater avenues for exploiting film content newer avenues like mobile entertainment, video-on-demand (VOD) and distribution through newer modes like IPTV, DTH are expected to play important roles in the years to come. In the television space, addressability in the Indian market is expected to provide great opportunities for growth. With the advent of addressable systems like DTH a number of players are expected to launch niche channels. These channels could require a lot of home grown content. Addressability through CAS and DTH also means that with the problem of under declaration of subscribers by cable operators coming to an end, broadcasters would get a greater share of the subscription pie. This could spell good news for content providers as this increased share could get ploughed back into the business in the form of higher programming spend. The Company operates in a very competitive environment. Apart from the organized entities in the television and film production space there are a lot of small-unorganized production houses in both the films and the television segments. Also changes in Government regulations or any change in the legislative intent to bring about addressability could adversely impact growth plans. CONSOLIDATED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS Revenues The Company reported consolidated operating revenues growth of 18% from Rs 1,768 million to Rs 2,084 million primarily due to a substantial increase in revenues from the movies division where the income increased from Rs 774 million in the previous year to Rs 1,310 million this year, an increase of 69%. The Company released three of its productions this year D, Main Meri Patni aur Woh and Rang De Basanti. Apart from this, the company distributed the Hindi films Kya Kool Hai Hum, Parineeta, Mughal-e-Azam (Colour Version), Viruddh, Shaadi No. 1, Deewane Hue Pagal, Bluff Master and Taxi No This year the Company also began theatrical exploitation of its foreign film library in India with the release of the films Myth and Unleashed. Further the company also distributed films on commission basis in United Kingdom like Apaharan, Jawani Diwani, Kalyug and Family. Revenues from the television and allied services segments decreased from Rs 909 million and Rs 98 million in the previous year to Rs 711 million and Rs 78 million in the current year showing a drop of 22% and 20% respectively. The drop in television revenues was mainly attributable to the natural end of some of the shows in the television content production and Airtime sales business. The Company however, added to its list of clients channels like Zee Café and Sony Entertainment Television during the year. Other Income Other Income for the year was Rs 48 million as against Rs 36 million in the previous year. Other Income for the year includes Net Interest Income earned Rs 13 million, as against a net interest expense of Rs 18 million in the previous year. Also during the year, in July 2005, the city of Mumbai experienced unprecedented floods due to which the operations of the company s animation studio was affected. On account of insurance of these premises the Company has booked a partial settlement amount of Rs 9 million as part of other Income. Apart from this, excess provisions of earlier years amounting to Rs 22 million has been written back to the profit and loss account, as these were no longer required. During the year, the Company also sold off its entire holding in its 100% subsidiary UTV International Holdings Ltd. (BVI) for Rs 23 million whereas the carrying value of the investment in the books 34

37 UTV Software Communications Limited was a negative of Rs 28 million. Thus there was a profit on consolidation of Rs 51 million, which has been represented as exceptional item in the profit and loss account and as unallocable income in the segmental results. Direct Costs Direct costs, consisting of cost of content creation, acquisition, marketing and distribution of film and television content, net of inventorisation were at Rs 1,695 million in the current year as against Rs 1,265 million in the previous year, an increase of 34%, mainly due to an increase in the level of activity. Direct cost as a percentage of operating revenues was at 81% compared to 72% the previous year. During the year margins were lower mainly due to two reasons: (i) In the television segment, the South based Airtime Sales business witnessed major expansion during the year and number of new shows were added. Newly introduced shows generally take about 3-6 months to mature and start delivering the required margins. Since most of these shows were introduced in the later part of the year they resulted in lower margins for the television segment during the year; (ii) Two of the films distributed by us during the year Shaadi No. 1 and Deewane Hue Pagal, both from renowned film directors, did well below our expectations resulting in substantial losses for the Company in these projects. This resulted in lower margins in the movies segment during the year. Staff Costs The Indian Economy has grown at a good pace during the year and the Media and Entertainment industry in which the Company operates has grown at a faster pace than that of the economy. The rapidly growing economy has fueled higher salary levels. Staff cost of the Company has increased by 25% from Rs 128 million in the previous year to Rs 160 million this year. The increased cost also reflects the cost incurred for expansion in almost all the segments of the Company. Other Expenses Other expenses comprise all administrative overheads of the company, provisions for doubtful debts/doubtful advances, advertisement and business promotion expenses and general expenses. During the year, other expenses were lower by approximately 12% from Rs 127 million in the previous year to Rs 113 million in the year under consideration. This was mainly on account of a reduction in provisions/write offs during the year. Interest Cost During the year, the Company s borrowings increased by Rs 831 million which was used to fund its various expansion activities especially in the segments of Film production, Television content marketing, Post-Production and to support its Joint Venture Company United Home Entertainment Ltd. These borrowings were mostly done in the latter part of the financial year and hence the increase in interest cost during the year was only by 29% at Rs 27 million as compared to Rs 21 million in the previous year. After deducting interest income of Rs 40 million from the interest expense of Rs 27 million, Rs 13 million has been shown as other income in the accounts for the current year. Depreciation The depreciation charge for the current year was at Rs 47 million as compared to Rs 53 million in the previous year. The depreciation charge during the year has reduced primarily due to the exclusion of about Rs 29 million of fixed assets belonging to its 100% subsidiary - UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI which was fully sold to Media Footing SDN BHD. Further, the Company s expansion programme in post production and animation facilities was not fully operational by the year end. Cumulative investment of about Rs 170 million was underway out of which assets worth only Rs 45 million were capitalised by the year end. Profit before Tax and Exceptional Items The Profit before Tax and Exceptional Items for the year was lower at Rs 116 million as against Rs 213 million in the previous year. The movie distribution business setup by the Company in the previous year under performed with two movies incurring large losses. The Company has adopted a cautious approach in this segment and is now focusing on film production in a major way where the risks of loss due to product failure is much lower as the Company has better control over the final product. The Television segment witnessed lower margins. The animation division did not contribute much to the profits of the Company since its operation was affected for a large part of the year due to the floods in July The Company has reestablished a much larger facility and is in the process of executing its pending order book in animation. 35

38 Exceptional Item During the year, the Company sold its entire shareholding in its 100% subsidiary, UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI. Upon sale of this company, the accumulated losses of the subsidiary in the consolidated books of the Company were transferred out, resulting in a gain of Rs 51 million that has been recognised as an exceptional income. Provision for Taxation Provision for Taxation made during the year was Rs 25 million working out to an effective tax rate of about 22% of Profit before tax and Exceptional Items. The tax rate is lower than corporate tax rate due to the tax efficiencies in the foreign subsidiaries of the Company. Net profit after Tax and Minority Interest The Net profit after tax and minority interest for the year was lower at Rs 142 million as against Rs 162 million in the previous year. This was primarily due to the under performance of two films in the distribution business and due to pressure on margins in the television business. The decrease in profits due to these reasons was partially offset by the recognition of the exceptional gain on sale of UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI. CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL POSITION SOURCES OF FUNDS Share Capital, Revenues and Surplus The Equity share capital of the Company remained unchanged in the year. The consolidated reserves and surplus reduced marginally from Rs. 1,174 million to Rs 1,143 million, a reduction of Rs 31 million mainly due to exclusion of the reserves of its erstwhile 100% subsidiary UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI, which was sold off during the year. Loan Funds The borrowings of the Company increased by Rs 831 million from Rs. 184 million to 1,015 million during the year. The increased borrowings were used to fuel the Company s growth. The Company has implemented an expansion project by investing about Rs 85 million in expanding the animation facility, around Rs 90 million in expanding the post-production facility, Rs 228 million for movies under production and Rs 452 million was used for investments in its Joint Venture company United Home Entertainment Ltd. Both the animation and post-production facility have become operational in May and July 2006 respectively. UTILISATION OF FUNDS Fixed Assets During the year, the net block of fixed assets of the Company has fallen to Rs 283 million from Rs 296 million at the end of the previous year. This is mainly due to the reduction in fixed assets of Rs 29 million on account of the sale of its 100% subsidiary, UTV International (Holdings) Limited. Actual additions to fixed assets during the year was at Rs 45 million. The capital-work-in-progress as on March 31, 2006 represents the investments made by the Company in the expansion of its animation and post-production facilities, which is to the tune of about Rs 124 million. The benefits of these investments would be felt in the coming financial year when these facilities have gone live. Investments During the year, the investments of the Company increased by Rs 35 million compared to the previous year. Short-term deployment of IPO funds in mutual fund units of Rs 160 million was redeemed during the year and invested in various business activities of the Company. Investment of Rs. 195 million was made in Zero Coupon fully convertible preference shares of the Joint Venture Company United Home Entertainment Ltd. Current Assets, Loans and Advances Total current assets, loans and advances increased by Rs 688 million during the year from Rs 1,572 million in the previous year to Rs 2,260 million. Debtors (net) as on March 31, 2006 were at Rs 582 million representing 102 days of sale as against Rs 572 million as on March 31, 2005 representing 118 days of sale. During the year, inventories have increased by Rs 311 million on the back of increased investment in movie stock and acquisition of television content. Loans and advances have increased by Rs 437 million. This is mainly due to advances made by the Company to its Joint Venture company United Home Entertainment Ltd. Increase in advances is also due to increased level in business activities, particularly in the television airtime sales business. Cash and bank balances dropped by Rs 66 million from Rs 132 million in the previous financial year to 36

39 UTV Software Communications Limited Rs 66 million in the current year. The IPO funds, invested in bank fixed deposits in the last financial year were redeployed in business activities in the current year. Current Liabilities and Provisions Current Liabilities has increased by about Rs 44 million. Due to increased level of activity, creditors of the Company have increased. Net Deferred Tax Asset/Liability Net Deferred tax liability which was at Rs 8 million as at the end of the previous year, increased to Rs 26 million as at the end of the current financial year. The increase of Rs 18 million was mainly due to utilization of deferred tax assets during the year on account of unabsorbed losses and depreciation. SEGMENTAL PERFORMANCE Television Revenues from the television segment declined by 22% to Rs 711 million during the year from Rs 909 million in the previous year. The main reason for a decline in revenues from the television segment was a fall in revenues from TV content production during the year, which in turn was due to the natural end of some of the shows. The Company however, added to its list of clients channels like Zee Café and Sony Entertainment Television during the latter part of the year. Revenues were also lower because of a fall in revenues from the animation division, which was affected by the floods in Mumbai. The decline in revenues and pressure on margins during the year resulted in the drop in profit from Rs 130 million in the previous year to Rs 60 million in the current year. Movies Revenues from the movies segment grew 69% to Rs 1,310 million during the year from Rs 774 million in the previous year due to an expansion in the level of activity. The segment result however, saw a decline in the profitability by 28% from Rs 148 million in the previous year to Rs 107 million in the current year. This was mainly due to losses made on two key distribution properties Shaadi No. 1 and Deewane Hue Pagal. Allied Content Services Revenues from this segment declined by 20% to Rs 78 million during the year under review as compared to Rs 98 million during the previous year. The Company has recently expanded its post-production facility by making investments in VFX and other modern facilities as a result of which it can now cater to the growing film industry. The segment result however, saw an increase in the profitability by 4% from Rs 25 million in the previous year to Rs 26 million in the current year. OTHER COMPANY INFORMATION Induction of Strategic Investor The Company has executed a Share Subscription Agreement for inducting The Walt Disney Group ( Disney ), an international media major as a strategic investor into the Company through preferential allotment. This investment is pending shareholders and regulatory approvals. UTV is expected to derive significant synergies with Disney s operations worldwide in various segments of media and entertainment and aim at scaling up operations. Stake sale in Hungama TV As part of UTV s strategy to attain leadership position in content creation across all platforms and grow organically and in-organically, UTV and its promoters have executed agreements to divest their entire equity and preference share holding in their Kids broadcasting venture, United Home Entertainment Ltd., which owns and operates Hungama TV to Disney. After completion of this transaction subject to regulatory approvals Disney will own and operate entire operations of Hungama TV. Sale of UTV International (Holdings) Limited During the year the Company sold its entire shareholding in its 100% subsidiary, UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI to Media Footing SDN BHD. UTV International (Holdings) Limited, BVI had a 70% stake in Antah UTV Multimedia & Communications SDN BHD. Both these companies have been non-operational and hence defunct over last few years. Human Resources The Company seeks, respects and values the diverse qualities and backgrounds that its people bring to it and is committed to utilizing the richness of knowledge, ideas and experience that this diversity provides. The work environment is stimulating and development of core competencies through formal training, job rotation and hands on training is an ongoing activity.

40 As at March 31, 2006, the Company and its subsidiaries had 369 employees, long-term professional associates and animation talent, the classification of which is as under Top Management 11 Creative & Technical 200 Sales, Production and Marketing 72 Support 86 TOTAL 369 Utilisation of IPO Funds During the year, the Company fully utilised the IPO funds raised during its maiden IPO in March There has been some change in the pattern of utilization of IPO funds from that stated in the prospectus at the time of the IPO. The details of the amounts proposed to be utilised as per the Prospectus and actual utilization with reasons for changes if any are given below: All figures in Rs million Particulars Projected Actual Difference in the funds Prospectus utilised till March 31, 2006 a. Capital expenditure for enhancement of production facility/office infrastructure to replace the existing leased facilities premises, interior and setup 100 (100) b. Editing and other equipment for captive use of UTV content production 20 (20) c. Providing interest free loan to subsidiary United Entertainment Solutions Ltd. for investment in post production expansion 60 5 (55) d. Investment in United Home Entertainment Ltd. in form of Equity and Preference capital for funding Hungama TV e. Working capital for Movie production/distribution initiatives f. IPO Expenses a. Office Infrastructure - The Company had envisaged acquiring new premises and doing up the interiors at a cost of about Rs 100 million. Since the property market was on the rise, the Company could not get adequate space in the allocated costs and hence thought it prudent to go in for leased premises. The company has leased over 24,000 sq. ft. of office space in Mumbai and has set up its animation, post-production and general office setup in the new premises at a cost of over Rs 31 million. b. Investment in editing and other equipment for captive use of UTV content production The Company has not yet finalised these equipments and would acquire these as and when required out of internal accruals. c. Providing interest free loan of Rs 60 million to subsidiary United Entertainment Solutions Ltd. (UESL) for investment in postproduction expansion. The subsidiary UESL, has been able to get funding from a bank for its expansion project and hence the outflow envisaged of Rs 60 million has got reduced to Rs 5 million from the IPO funds. d. Working capital for movie production/distribution initiatives - Since the Company had not invested the projected amounts in (a), (b) and (c) above, the surplus funds available were invested in its business viz., movie production and distribution activity. e. The IPO expenses were over budget by Rs 9 million. RISK FACTORS i. The Company operates in highly competitive environment that is subject to innovations, changes and varying levels of resources available to each player in each segment of business. ii. Certain parts of companies business like production of television content, post-production and dubbing are highly fragmented with competition ranging from other organized large players to individual producers. iii. Acceptance of the Company s film and television programming by the public is difficult to predict, which could lead to fluctuations in revenues, and the Company s business of film production and distribution involves high level of risks. iv. Most of the activity undertaken by the Company is creativity driven and Company s long-term profitability is dependent on its ability to attract and retain creative and technical talent. v. The Company s business is in-significantly regulated and segments of media and entertainment changes in regulations could adversely affect its operations. 38
