The money: Saregam, which is a music label, production house, and sells music-players called Carvaan, reported a reduction in consolidated income by 16.4% YoY, to Rs 132 crore in Q3FY20. Its net profit fell 23% YoY to Rs 13.4 crore. Profits of the company's music segment — which accounts for 90% of its revenue — reduced by 24.4% this quarter from the corresponding quarter of FY19. Revenue from the music segment fell 19%, and remained largely flat for both the films and publications segment.

Almost half (49%) of the revenue from Carvaan came from mid to small towns, compared to just 36% in Q1FY19. The company also added podcasts to Carvaan 2.0 to broaden its appeal to younger people. The company also lists a variation for Karaoke, live housie, Art of Living variations for the Carvaan line, and also plan to add earphones. Gross margin of Carvaan was 25% for Q3FY20.
