- Difficult to predict performance of a movie at box office
- It is difficult to predict how a film may perform at the box office, which is dependent on ever-changing consumer tastes and preferences. Moreover the company has limited experience in film production business. There is no way to assure that the company will be able to generate desired returns from every movie. An unsatisfactory performance at the box office may impact the profitability of the company.
- Escalation in content cost
- With limited content pool and rising exhibiting mediums the content cost can escalate rapidly. This could result in the company either losing out on opportunities to acquire content, or, pay higher for the content which will adversely impact the company’s profitability.
The media industry has been exposed to piracy and illegal use and exploitation of content and intellectual property rights. Moreover, with technological advancements and round the clock connectivity, it has become easier to make and distribute illegal copies to digital content. Monitoring infringement of content is difficult and the protection of intellectual property rights in India may not be as effective as in other countries. Piracy of their content through counterfeit media, including digital versatile discs and compact discs and continued or increased unauthorized use of proprietary and intellectual property could result in lost revenue, result in significantly reduced pricing power and could have a material adverse effect on business prospects, financial condition and results of operations.
