UTV Q2-11: Indiagames In Black, Though Gaming & Interactive Revenues Decline

Obfuscation from UTV Software, as the company has decided to report financial results for gaming and Interactive / New Media segments combined; according to the company, “Due to the blurring of boundaries between the two we are reporting the Games content and Interactive segments together from this quarter with a view to consolidate similar businesses”.

Really? They think the line between CXOToday and Indiagames is blurring? And they’ve changed their mind about reporting patterns rather quickly too: last quarter, the company reported results separately for UTV Indiagames (Rs. 1.5 Cr loss) and UTV New Media (Rs. 0.5 Cr loss). This quarter, though, UTV says that Indiagmes is in the black, and expects to continue this trend, but doesn’t mention specific results.
