Recovery in the advertising market helped Rediff.com, as the company reported a 39% improvement in advertising revenues, and better utilization and delivery of inventory. Total India revenues, which include fee-based and online advertising revenues, grew 31.4% for the quarter, contributed to a 24.74% increase in total revenues. However, the increase in revenues didn’t translate into a reduction in losses: net loss was up 9.76% year on year at $1.8 million, and Operating EBITDA declined 52.11% to a loss of $1.72 million.
