DQ Entertainment plc

("DQE" or the "Group")

Indian subsidiary financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended

31 December 2013

DQE Entertainment (International) Limited ("DQE India" or "the Company"), the Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange of India listed, production and distribution company, which is 75 per cent owned by DQE, has announced its un-audited financial results for the quarter ended 31 December 2013 prepared under Indian GAAP.

Financial Highlights for the nine months ended 31.12.13:

·     Revenue: INR 1,378.52 mn (USD 23.03mn) (2012: INR 1,408.65 mn (USD 23.53mn))

·     EBIDTA: INR 819.29 mn (USD 13.69mn) (2012: INR 598.40 mn (USD 10mn))

·     Profit before tax: INR 355.80 mn (USD 5.94mn ) (2012: INR 178.63 mn (USD 2.98mn))

·     Profit after tax: INR 281.13 mn (USD 4.70mn) (2012: INR 140.11 mn (USD 2.34mn))

As reported previously, due to the seasonality of our business, revenue in the first and third quarters is generally lower than the second and fourth quarters.

Although the Company had completed deliveries of some of the projects before 31 December 2013, revenues will be recognised in Q4 due to delay in receipt of approvals from clients/partners on account of the holiday season for Christmas and New Year.

For the nine months to 31 December 2013, EBIDTA has increased by 37%, profit before tax has increased by 99.7% and [profit after tax has increased by over 100%, compared to the nine months to 31 December 2012. The higher profits are on account of foreign exchange gains and better efficiencies, where t he Company has been conscious of its costs and was able to reduce its production and employee expenses substantially.

The table below indicates the adjusted profit before tax after eliminating the foreign exchange gain/loss and extraordinary items. As per the table below, the adjusted profit before tax has increased substantially for the third quarter as well as the nine months ended 31 December 2013 as compared to the previous corresponding period:

The current order book stands at INR 4100 mn.

The administrative costs have been impacted on account of a provision of INR 57mn due from one of our customers, which has gone into administration.

The Company's focussed efforts to reduce its receivables have resulted in the collection of an amount of INR 447 mn since October 2013.

Chairman's Statement:

There is a clear upsurge in the economy of North America, however the economic slowdown in Europe still continues. DQE is now making all efforts in North America to take benefit of the increased demand for TV and movie content in animation -  hybrid presentations as well as pure live action. We are in a number of advanced negotiations with production houses in the USA in this regard.

With the eruption of newer delivery formats, such as the VOD (video-on-demand) and SVOD (subscription video-on-demand) platforms, there is an increased demand for animated children's content as can be seen from announcements of deals made by Netflix, Hulu, DreamWorks and several other major studios in the US.  DQE, with its track record of international high quality productions such as Little Prince, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Jungle Book, Peter Pan, The Penguins of Madagascar etc., should benefit from this renewed demand.

The industry is also witnessing an increase in demand for Visual Effects (VFX) content for animated feature films, live Action thrillers & action films and Sci-fi films from Hollywood, Europe and Japan. This will enable DQE to take advantage of its capabilities and trusted name for CGI/VFX production in USA and Europe.

Our intellectual properties are gathering momentum worldwide. We have successfully completed the delivery of 'The Jungle Book Season 2'. Based on the strong demand from the broadcasters and producers worldwide we have "green lit" the production of the second season of 'The New Adventures of Peter Pan'. With a substantial evolvement of distribution technologies and delivery platforms, our licensing and distribution team is continuously exploring avenues for 360 degree monetisation of our content library.

An update on some of our major projects and licensing/distribution activities, and the operating highlights for the quarter ended 31 December 2013, are set out below:
