Sharing is caring!

Hyderabad, January 2022: The Board of Brightcom Group has met to take stock of third quarter earnings of the company. The Revenues have surged forward to Rs 2021 crore, up by 130.08 % leading to a higher Net Profit at Rs 371 crore, up by 167.99 %.

The overall performance was impressive owing to increased consumer usage of digital media and digital channels to conduct commerce across the world, post the pandemic. Filtering technologies across the industry have reached a steady-state, cutting down the spurious traffic, thereby contributing to higher eCPMs (effective Cost per Impression).

The company is excited to announce that in order to reward our shareholders further, we have declared an issue of Bonus Shares in the ratio 2:3, meaning for every three shares owned, two bonus shares will be issued. The move will not only improve liquidity but also unlock the value of the company.

The target Future Cashflows FCF for FY22 remains at Rs 250 cr, and as stated in earlier communication, is slated to reach Rs 500 cr by June quarter, 2022. Improving Free Cash generation is a key financial target for management.
