The Company made the following statement:

“This quarter we generated $32.3 million of top-line revenue and $7.8 million in adjusted EBITDA. Our Eros Now business continues to ramp up and grow its paid user base worldwide, supported by one of the largest libraries of Indian movies, along with its unparalleled market position and brand name. As of September 30, 2019 our Eros Now OTT platform reached 23.5 million paid monthly subscribers and 177.7 million registered users, increases of 81% and 39%, respectively, over the same period last year. This represents net additions of 4.7 million paid subscribers and 23 million registered users during the first half of Fiscal Year 2020. Eros Now currently garners viewership from over 150 countries around the world. Eros has a strong slate of films and original series scheduled for release over the coming quarters, and we expect this to help drive continued growth in our Eros Now business as well as box-office revenue.

We have several high-profile upcoming film releases, including Kaamiyab, Pagalpanti, Marjaavaan, Pati Patni Aur Wo, The Body, the trilingual remake of Haathi mere Saathi as well as a host of regional releases. In addition, Eros Now has a strong slate of originals scheduled to release in the coming quarters, including Flesh, Halahal, Avatar: The Legend of Vishnu, Metro Park 2 and Crisis.

In September, we announced a ground-breaking commercial partnership with Microsoft with the goal of transforming the content streaming experience for consumers globally. This collaboration will help Eros Now develop a new intuitive online video platform to ensure seamless delivery of content across countries and languages. It will also create a host of new interactive voice offerings for customers including video search experiences, voice search for video content across multiple Indian languages, and create personalized content. This collaboration will help our Eros Now platform enhance and strengthen its reach across globe and increase engagement with consumers.

As we see new players enter the Indian OTT market and international players such as Apple, Disney, Fox and Amazon redoubling their focus on India, we believe our market-leading offering built through years of investment and innovation puts us in a very fortunate position. We are one of the first OTT services to develop in India and are now benefiting from the foresight we had years ago to pioneer the market.

For the full fiscal year 2020, we are reiterating our consolidated revenue guidance in the range of $200-220 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $80-$95 million. We have a healthy balance sheet with net debt of $112.6 million and $99.4 million of cash and cash equivalents.”

Global Strategy

At the core of our strategy has always been the goal to make local stories a global experience. Investing in unique, compelling content to adapt, exploit and expand great stories for consumers around the world is something we have always been very excited about. Great stories transcend languages and cultures and can come from anywhere. We are, therefore, very focused on increasing our distribution and partnership channels outside of India, with a goal to bring people the best and most diverse offering of Indian language content in any format. Our recent successes in China and other overseas markets underscore the appeal of quality content in new markets, and it also highlights the longevity of our content and ability to monetize in new markets and windows.

To that end, here are some recent highlights and proof points of our global strategy:

  • Two of the top 5 grossing Indian films in China were released by Eros – Andhadhun and Bajrangi Bhaijaan – which combined grossed $92 million in the China Box Office
  • We recently secured international distribution rights to four Hindi language films which will be released in the current fiscal quarter
  • We are releasing the critically acclaimed Andhadhun in cinemas in Japan this month
  • Roam Roam Mein, a psychological-drama film produced by Eros, premiered at Busan International Film Festival in Korea and won the Asian Star Award
  • Maunn, an Eros Now Quickie content piece, was the Winner of the Asia Pacific Film Festival in Los Angeles and also nominated at the Vancouver International Film Festival
  • Eros Now original series Smoke was the only original from India to be screened at Mipcom 2018 in Cannes
  • Our highly-acclaimed original series, Metro Park, is an example of cutting-edge cross cultural content which helped grow Eros Now viewership in the US by 22%
  • We launched 120 new films on Eros Now this quarter in 6 different Indian languages

Eros Now Distribution & Technology:

Eros Now has continued to expand its distribution partnerships both domestically and globally. We continue to be a front-runner from India and South Asia platforms in regards to distribution deals and alliances around the World. Technology has always been a core focus for Eros Now and in this quarter we announced an important partnership with Dolby. Movies on Eros Now have been Dolby enabled and our Dolby enabled partnership with One Plus TV was the first of its kind for an Indian OTT company. Eros Now also launched a refurbished version of progressive Web Apps in order to improve the funnel conversion into paid subscribers, and early results have been very encouraging.

We closed two meaningful distribution partnerships in India this quarter with Jio and Walmart-owned Indian ecommerce Giant Flipkart. We were one of the first partners to be integrated on the new Jio set top boxes. Our partnership with Flipkart brings entertainment to their millions of daily shoppers tying together the world of entertainment and ecommerce.

This September we announced an alliance with Microsoft to develop a cloud powered online video platform and new AI powered solutions to redefine the video viewing experience for South Asian consumers. This partnership will enable our customers with easy viewing and easy discovery with many personalization options.

The partnership will cover three areas:

  • Building a new intuitive online video player. This will be supported by a robust content delivery network (CDN) that leverages Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure Media Services for seamless delivery of content;
  • Exploring new offerings for consumers in the area of interactive voice services starting with 10 Indian languages;
  • Creating a new personalized recommendation engine for users by leveraging Eros’ user data, combined with Microsoft’s AI solutions. It will enable a shift from a tedious user discovery to provide relevant, targeted content on the go.

Deep personalisation and localisation will help us target a 50m+ paying subscriber universe as well as serving content to the micro-niches of the world beyond India in a language and environment in which the consumer feels most comfortable.

With a goal of increasing our higher-paying international direct to consumer subscribers, we recently closed on several meaningful distribution partnerships in the Middle East including Zain Telecom in Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan & Oman. We also look forward to the imminent launch of Eros Now across the global Apple plus platform, we are the only non-US entertainment partner during initial launch.

We recognise the size and importance of the Chinese market which has been a major focus for us. Given recent successes of Indian content in the Chinese box office we believe this is a market ready for Eros Now consumption. In September 2018 we finalised a licensing agreement with digital leader iQiyi which marked our entry point into the digital space in China. Our next step in China was a digital distribution deal with Wasu Media, a large state-owned culture media group, signed earlier this year. The Wasu Group is one of the biggest comprehensive digital content service operator and service provider across interactive TV, 3G / 4G mobile TV and Internet TV in China. Wasu’s services cover approximately 100 cities in 29 provinces in China with cable network as well as covering the three major telecom operators and several million Internet users. The Eros Now service will go live beginning the week of 18th November, 2019 on Wasu.

We will continue to focus on deep experiences to ensure we are able to drive value to both domestic and international subscribers across geographies and multiple distribution channels.

Eros Now Marketing:

Eros Now ran an innovative and expansive Indian Independence Day campaign in August – promoting 73 of India’s Biggest Films on the 73rd Indian Independence Day. A large focus this quarter for Eros Now was to improve the digital marketing funnel, re-marketing and subscriber CRM. Eros Now was recognized by Media Brand Awards with a Gold Award for the Best Promo in OTT Video for Side Hero, and a Silver Award for Metro Park in the Original Series Category

In September 2019, Eros Now and KPMG India published a report on online video in conjunction with FICCI and Creative First. Several key highlights of the report include:

  • Eros Now is the best distributed app in the SVOD eco-system in India
  • 9% of Eros Now users spend more than 21 hours/week watching video – highest across all platforms
  • Session average across SVOD OTT services in India was 43 minutes as compared to 75 minutes for the higher-tier the Eros Now paid subscribers
  • Cord-cutting is a real trend in India with 80% of respondents feeling that digital video would satisfy their entertainment needs and 38% ready to “cut the cord”

Eros Now Content:

We launched 120 new films on Eros Now in Q2 Fy 2019 in 6 different Indian languages. In addition we released over 2,600 music audio files on Eros Now and 97 units of short form and Eros Now Quickie Content. A unique innovation in Content formats with Singham Returns, Zindagi 50/50 were converted into short form Quickie Movies. Eros Now also celebrated Quickie Festival and Original Series Festivals supported by a large push on social and marketing. Eros now also launched its first lifestyle original : Yoga Vibes with Mansi Gulati, a world renowned face yoga expert. Lastly, we announced a partnership last year with Fashion TV whereby content from the channel will be available to Eros Now consumers. This has been proven successful, and Eros Now remains the first OTT player to venture into the fashion and lifestyle segment.

In addition, Eros Now has a strong slate of originals scheduled to release in the coming quarters, including:

  • Flesh by Siddharth Anand (target release Q4 FY20)
  • Halahal, a digital film, by Zeishan Qadri (target release Q4 FY20)

The above table does not split the earnings per share separately for the ‘A’ ordinary 30p shares and the ‘B’ ordinary 30p shares as there is no variation in their entitlement to participate in undistributed earnings.

The Company excludes options with exercise prices that are greater than the average market price from the calculation of diluted EPS because their effect would be anti-dilutive. In the six months ended September 30, 2019, 1,085,00 shares were not included in diluted earnings per share (September 30, 2018: 1,847,035) Further, the Company have excluded convertible notes 19,125,832 shares because their effect was anti-dilutive (September 30, 2018:7,197,804). During the three months ended September 30, 2019, 2,482,431 shares were not included in diluted earnings per share (September 30, 2018: 1,847,035) Since there is loss for the year, and for the quarter, the potential equity shares resulting from dilutive options are not considered as dilutive and hence, the Diluted EPS is same as Basic EPS.

IFRS – 16 LEASES

Effective April 1, 2019, the Company adopted IFRS 16, Leases, which specifies how to recognize, measure, present and disclose leases. The standard provides a single accounting model, requiring the recognition of assets and liabilities for all major leases previously classified as “operational leases”. The company applied Modified Retrospective Approach on the date of initial application

The Company recognizes a right-of-use asset and a lease liability at the lease commencement date. The right-of-use asset is initially measured at cost, based on the initial amount of the lease liability. The assets are depreciated to the earlier of the end of the useful life of the right-of-use asset or the lease term using the straight-line method as this most closely reflects the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits. The lease term includes periods covered by an option to extend if the Company is reasonably certain to exercise that option. In addition, the right-of-use asset is periodically adjusted for certain re-measurements of the lease liability. There is no impact on transition in opening balance of retained earnings as at April 1, 2019.

Operating leases

The Company has decided to use the approach that allows the right-of-use asset to be recognized at an amount equal to the liability as at the date of initial application. Based on such approach the Right-to-use (ROU) asset and lease liability as at April 1, 2019 have been created at $ 1,907 and $ 1,907, respectively. Unwinding of lease liability amounting $ 74 and amortization of Right-to-use asset amounting $ 681 have been recorded for the six months ended September, 30 2019 as against lease rent expenses recorded in the prior period/s. The weighted average incremental borrowing rate of 12% (for India) and 7.45% (for other locations) have been applied to lease liabilities recognized in the statement of financial position at the date of initial application.

Finance leases

As of April 01, 2019, Equipment amounting $ 243 has been reclassified to ROU from property and equipment and long-term and short-term borrowing amounting $153 and $ 98, respectively, have been reclassified to lease liabilities in relation to these finance lease. The Company has continued to discount the lease rental at interest rate implicit in these lease agreements, with unwinding of lease liability amounting $ 14 and amortization of ROU over the useful life amounting $ 59 for the six months ended September 30, 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net Income

The Company uses the term Net Income, as the International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) define the term as synonymous with profit for the period.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with IFRS, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA along with other IFRSs measures to evaluate operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for (gains)/impairments of available-for-sale financial assets, profit/loss on held for trading liabilities (including profit/loss on derivatives), transactions costs relating to equity transactions, share based payments, loss/(gain) on sale of property and equipment, Loss on de-recognition of financial assets measured at amortized cost, net, credit impairment loss, net, component loss on financial liability (convertible notes) measured at fair value through profit and loss, Loss on deconsolidation of a subsidiary and exceptional items such as impairment of goodwill, trademark, film & content rights and content advances.

Adjusted EBITDA, as used and defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operating investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA provides no information regarding a company’s capital structure, borrowings, interest costs, capital expenditures and working capital changes or tax position. However, Eros’ management team believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the Company’s results of operations because this measure:

  • is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such term, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors;
  • helps investors to evaluate and compare the results of Eros’ operations from period to period by removing the effect of the Company’s capital structure from its operating structure.

See the supplemental financial schedules for reconciliations to IFRSs measures in the table below, which presents a reconciliation of Eros’ Adjusted EBITDA to net income.
