Commenting on the results, JPL CMD Mahendra Mohan Gupta said:" Demonetisation caused a remarkable disruption in the economic activity. Media & entertainment industry which thrives on consumption was no exception and struggled for revenues".


"However, I am glad with the overall performance of the company which like many other times in the past could withstand this highly unusual economic condition and reported improvement in EPS by 25 per cent inspite of low single digit growth in advertisement revenue," he added.


JPL's revenue from advertisement was up 3.91 per cent to Rs 352.12 crore in Q3/FY 2016-17 as against Rs 338.85 crore.


Its total expenses during the period was up 2.78 per cent to Rs 366.26 crore as against Rs 356.35 crore.


Apart from Dainik Jagran, the group publishes papers such as Naidunia, Midday, INext, Punjabi Jagran, Josh & Sakhi.

Shares of JPL today settled at Rs 186.60 on BSE, down 0.32 per cent from previous close.
