ZEE Entertainment Ltd was founded in the year 1982, based in Mumbai. Company was formerly known as Zee Teleflims Limited and changed its name to Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited in January 2007. ZEEL, together with its subsidiaries, operates as a vertically integrated media and entertainment company in India. It operates in three segments: Broadcasting and Content, Education, and Film Production. The Broadcasting and Content segment develops, produces, and procures television programming and film content, and delivers through satellites, cable, and Internet. It broadcasts channels, such as Hindi general entertainment channels and regional language general entertainment channels, Bollywood channels, sports channels, English entertainment channels, alternate lifestyle channels. Company earns revenues by the way of advertisement and subscription revenues and syndication The Education segment engages in distribution of software learning products; and provides education and training in information technology. The Film Production segment produces and distributes films. The company has a library housing approximately 80,000 hours of television content; and rights to approximately 3,000 movie titles. Effective March 29, 2010, Zee News Ltd. demerged its Regional General Entertainment Channel Business Undertaking and transferred its operation to Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited It has operations in India, the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

Investment Rationale:
Zee - Turner signed a distribution JV with Star-Den which will be a game-changer, as it will significantly increase the bargaining power with local cable operators. Company’s subscriptions will be strong after this JV with Star Den which will also set up a Media Pro Enterprise India which will be 50:50 partnerships between Zee Turner and Star Den Media Services, for combined distribution of TV channels. ZEE and Star networks together controls 40 % - 45 % of viewer ship share.  The JV will be effective from July 2011 and the subscription revenue would be visible from FY13. It is expected that a 17 % Y-o-Y growth will be seen in analog subscription revenue for ZEE in FY13 as against an estimated 5 % growth in FY12. Recently on 19th June 2011, Zee unveiled its new brand identity by a new logo & a new slogan with the objective of taking forward of progressive outlook for the channel. Zee Entertainment Enterprises (ZEEL) announced a share buyback programme that will have a cash outflow of up to Rs. 700 cr. The buyback would be of its fully paid-up equity shares of face value Re.1.00 each, at a price not exceeding Rs. 126.00 per equity share. ZEEL proposes to buyback a minimum of 1.26 crore shares. The Maximum Buyback Size is within the company law limit of 25% of the aggregate of the Company’s paid-up equity capital and free reserves as on March 31, 2010. The aggregate paid up equity share capital and free reserves of the Company as at March 31, 2010 was Rs. 2,818.33 Cr. The date of opening of Buyback offer is July 27, 2011 and will end at March 23, 2012.

Concerns regarding margin pressure:
Margins are likely to be under pressure, it is believed that there could be a pressure on core business margins, as volumes will slowdown coinciding with the ramp-up in original programming hours. Original Programming Hours for the flagship channel like Zee TV has increased from 24 hours per week to 29.5 hours per week and the management targets to increase original programming hour further to 33-35 hours per week by March 2012.  On the contrary, Star Plus is currently running at original programming hours of 40 hours per week while Colors is at 30-31 hours per week.

Outlook & Valuation:
Though there are visible signs of slowdown in ad growth likely due to macro slowdown and a pause in ad spends after the spending of Rs.1,500 cr on cricket season (ICC Cricket World Cup + Indian Premier League). While there is no indication of a cut in ad-budgets as yet, advertisers have turned more cautious, thus impacting advertising volumes. A buy back & 11 % ad revenue growth in FY12 and 12 % growth in FY13 makes a buy in ZEEL with a target price of Rs. 150 The stock trades at 20x FY12E EPS of Rs. 6.70 and 16.5x FY13E EPS of Rs. 8.2 with a price target of Rs. 150 (18x FY13E EPS). I believe that buy back will be EPS accretive by 1.288 %. 

Result Update:
Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL) posted 13.28 % decline in its consolidated net profit at Rs. 130.16 Cr for the first quarter ended June 30, 2011. In the same quarter of the previous fiscal, the company’s net profit was Rs. 150.10 Cr. For the three months ended June 30, 2011, the company’s consolidated sales increased 3.14 per cent to Rs 698.30 crore compared with Rs. 676.99 crore in the same quarter of 2010—11. The company’s advertising revenues increased 0.5 % during the quarter to Rs. 378.74 crore (Rs 376.91 crore). As said earlier, with the onset of festival season, the company is expecting to see normalcy in advertising spends. ZEEL’s subscription revenues increased 16.7 % during the first quarter of the current financial year to Rs. 305.09 Cr v/s Rs. 261.42 Cr in the same quarter last fiscal. Zee final Dividend of 200 % i.e Rs. 2.00 on 28th July 2011, AGM on 10th Aug 2011. Book Closure from 30th July 2011 to 5th Aug 2011

RONW (%) 13.00 13.80 14.40 16.20

I maintain my buy status on ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd with the price target of Rs. 150 in short term. For long term my target is of Rs. 200. As I always say do respect the market and keep a strict stop loss of 8 % or Rs. 110 on your every purchases.
