The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in the group ending the period reflecting a profit from continuing operations of R8.1 million compared
to a restated profit of R103.6 million in the prior period, a decrease of 92%. Both Television and Radio advertising revenue have been severely impacted by the
various lockdowns both internationally and locally. Year-on-year the television advertising cake has shown a decrease in excess of 30% whilst the group
went back 20% in advertising revenue, thus substantially better then the market. Advertising being the major source of revenue for the group has had the biggest
impact on the results with the revenue ending the period on R687.3 million compared to the prior year of R862.5 million, a difference of R175.2 million.
On a positive note, advertising revenue has since lockdown level 1, begun to show a resurgence and the group is confident that the worst impact on revenue
through Covid-19 has already been absorbed.
