ET Now caught up with Jawahar Goel, MD, Dish TV, to analyse the company’s earnings figures, subscriber base & product price spirals. Excerpts from the chat:

Just wanted to get very basic numbers from you. For the quarter gone by, what was your total RPU and how many new customers you have added?

Jawahar Goel: Last quarter, we added about 760,000 subscribers and RPU is a flattish 138-139. It was 138 something last quarter, but the quarter what we are discussing is Rs 139.

Is the price hike going to reflect in the RPUs in the next quarter as well?

Jawahar Goel : The price hike on the most popular pack we had done it in the middle of third month. The affect will come in the coming quarters actually.

At a PAT level, you are still making losses. Share a guidance with us. By the end of FY12, I am not talking of FY11, FY12, what are the chances that at PAT level, you would start reporting profits?

Jawahar Goel : PAT level we will also cover. First we have to become EBITDA level and then PAT level will be sometime soon. May be in 3 to 4 quarters we will be very close to the PAT level.

There are murmurs on the street that you are looking at fundraising plan of about $200 million. Could you give us a status on that and how true this particular news is really?

Jawahar Goel : Actually we had taken a shareholder approval for $200 million raising about 6 quarters back and the money was available, but we had only raised $100 million at Rs 38 or so that time and our category is a restricted category. We have to go to the I&B ministry and FIIs, the approval from the central government, various approvals which will take 6 to 8 months’ time. So the earlier resolution has expired. We had taken a resolution from the Board to process $200 million permission and the management is quite sensitive on raising the money.

Its Really Good to see 760,000 new customer added in last quarter. I think its highest among other otherators as well. And that's the main reason Dishtv is well ahead of their competitors in subscriber addition.
