The Board has recommended a final dividend of ? 3 (30%) per equity share of face value Rs. 10 for the year ended 31st March 2020 subject to shareholder's approval at the ensuing AGM.

Commenting on the performance, Anirudhsinh Jadeja, Managing Director, GTPL Hathway said, "Amidst a year of industry reforms, GTPL Hathway has emerged as a stronger company. Our operating ability to expand our services have improved and so has our ability to generate free cash-flow. The highlight of FY20 was strong profitability, debt reduction and geographical expansion. Our FY20 consolidated revenue and EBITDA grew by 88% and 39%, respectively. During the year, we have reduced our grss debt by ? 1,293 million. During the year, we have strengthened our CATV presence in Mumbai (Maharashtra) and have entered Chennai (Tamil Nadu). We have also expanded our subscribers base in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in FY20.



FY20 was the first full year of implementation of the New Framework across the industry. Implementation of new regime prima facie resulted in change in LCOs' earning profile adversely and restricted their cash flow cycle, consequently, lowering their ability to pay their dues to the Company. Pursuant to the above change and assessment carried out by the management, we have recognised

? 679.64 million towards impairment of trade receivables and have disclosed the same as "Exceptional Item".
