Siti’s ARPU jumped 1.02x quarter-on-quarter to Rs 128 with the operating EBIDTA margin at 19.2%. The performance was affected due to the deadly ‘AMPHAN’ cyclone in the East Indian territory wherein Siti has a stronghold.

While commenting on the results, Mr. Anil Malhotra, CEO of SITI Networks Limited mentioned: “The ministry of information and broadcasting has included cable services under essential services to provide uninterrupted-cable-services and SITI has performed significantly well in view of the world wide impact of Covid-19 under severe lockdown in the entire country and migration of urban population in Q1FY21. Furthermore, Cyclone Amphan in our strong hold territory of Eastern India have also impacted our business during the Q1FY21. However, with key focus on our operational efficiencies, our employees, LCOs and their respective families got infected and some lost their lives too but they ensured seamless connectivity on the ground in pandemic. This paves the way for strong recovery and growth in the coming times”

Siti has also expanded its foothold in the broadband business to three new tier-2 cities in Q1 and also acquired E-Net Entertainment Private Limited to make its presence within the territory of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
