ICICI Direct’s research report on DB Corp

Overall revenues at | 594.3 crore (up 4.2% YoY) were largely in line with our estimate of | 593.5 crore.  Print advertisement revenues came in at | 390.3 crore, up 4.5% YoY and slightly higher than our expectations of 4% YoY growth. We note that print ad growth of 4.5% YoY on a high base of 20.9% growth seen in Q1FY17 is encouraging despite pre - GST led uncertainty, which had impacted ad revenues  across media . Radio ad growth continued to outperform print at 11% YoY (| 31. 2 crore).  Digital revenues, which declined 1.6% YoY, were disappointing. Subscription revenues came in at | 123.4 crore, up 4.9% YoY, slightly below our estimates of 7.2% YoY growth.


We also highlight that DB enjoys a superior return ratios profile among its peers.  We value the company at 1 6 x FY1 9 E EPS of | 2 6. 9 at a target price of | 430 and assign a BUY rating  to the stock.
