Apurva Purohit, Director, Music Broadcast, said, “We have delivered a strong topline growth of 9% against mixed trends of the market. The growth is achieved mainly on the back of rapidly growing new markets along with an uptick in volumes. Despite a non-conducive environment, we have grown at 5% in volume terms in comparison to the industry growth rate of 2%.”

She further added, “There has been a 20% revenue growth in both November and December, we believe that the impact of demonetisation and GST has reduced to a great extent and business will only continue to grow from here. There are signs of an economic revival which will further bolster our growth prospects.”
