SABC post a net-loss of almost a Billion ZAR

Posted by radio On October - 3 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) announced its annual results for the 2016/2017 financial year.

The SABC posted a net loss after tax of R977 million during the year under review.  The organization experienced financial constraints owing to revenue streams deteriorating at a rate of 6% higher than the costs reduction. Cash and cash equivalents as at the end of 2016/17 financial year were R82 million compared to the previous year’s R881 million. This significant decrease in cash reserves has resulted in the SABC not being able to pay its debts as they fall due.

Revenue and other income for the period under review was R7.6 billion (2016: R8.1 billion) which is a 6% decrease year-on-year. Revenue is mainly derived from the primary revenue stream of advertising which decreased by 5% to R5.6 billion (2016: R5.9 billion), sponsorships revenue also decreased by 18% to R384 million (2016: R469 million), and TV license revenue also decreased by 7% to R915 million (2016: R986 million) compared to prior year.

 

The corporation received an adverse audit opinion for the period under review. The factors which contributed to this adverse opinion include amongst others; going concern basis of accounting, property plant and equipment, irregular expenditure and deferred government grants.

 

Despite all these challenges, the SABC was able to deliver on its on its public service mandate, as set out by the Broadcasting Act No 4 of 1999 as amended, as well the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA).

 

Radio

SABC radio which consists of 15 Public Service Broadcasting (PBS) stations and three Public Commercial Service (PCS) stations, services all South Africans in their preferred language. The combined average number of 28.9 million listeners per week makes the SABC’s radio offering a unique one that no other broadcaster can match. Radio stations embraced the effective synergy that digital media and radio offers to both the consumer and trade markets. All stations made extensive use of their respective websites to publish programming and marketing content and to keep listeners engaged beyond the point of traditional broadcasting.

TV

In terms of television, the network continued to dominate the broadcasting landscape with the public service broadcaster’s five television channels attracting, on average, 28.8 million (SABC1), 26.9 million (SABC2), 21 million (SABC3), 2.2 million (SABC News) and 1.4 million (SABC Encore) viewers in a typical month. Seventeen of the nation’s Top 20 television programmes are carried on the SABC.

 

The organization was also able to deliver on its local content quotas with SABC1, SABC2 and SABC3 achieving 80%, 67% and 53% respectively. Across its radio stations, SABC also delivered local content above ICASA regulations. There were however some difficulties, when the local content directive distorted the licensing formats of some radio stations, leading to audience and revenue losses.

 

With regards to SABC News, it successfully delivered on the most anticipated political event of the year – the 2016 Local Government Elections. As South Africa’s only public service broadcaster, the SABC’s role is most critical during an election period.

 

SABC Sport ensured the broadcast of sporting events such as the 2016 AFCON tournament; SA Sports Awards; 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games; the FIFA Club World Cup; Euro 2016; and an International Boxing Tournament featuring a local South African Boxer, the first international event to be showcased since the return of Boxing in 2015, the Cricket Inbound Tour as well as the Comrades Marathon, which is considered as amongst the best in terms of production and broadcast.

 

The Acting Group Chief Executive Officer (AGCEO), Ms Nomsa Philiso stated that “We are naturally disappointed with financial performance for the 2016/17 financial year. We are however encouraged by the great progress that is starting to show in the first quarter of the current financial year”.

 

The AGCEO further commented that “In particular costs containment measures are in place and financial prudence is exercised throughout. We are working hard to sustain this progress and to deal with all the outstanding issues raised by the Auditor-General’”.

 

During the year under review, the public service broadcaster won many prestigious awards and received numerous accolades, thereby confirming its status as South Africa’s top broadcaster. A total of 31 radio awards were won by the SABC, and SABC TV reclaimed its rightful spot and enjoyed a strong presence at a number of awards.

 

The SABC is committed in turning around its financial performance and will continue with the measures which have been put in place. The public service broadcaster will continue to serve the public of South Africa as it provides quality programming that is informative, educational and entertaining.

PwC Report : The future of Music

Posted by radio On October - 3 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

South Africa’s music revenue is on a growth curve. Total music revenue was R2.2 billion in 2016, up 2.7% on the previous year. The live music sector continues to be the growth driver as recorded music sales decline. However, while the live segment is set to maintain its momentum, recorded music revenue will begin to revive as South African consumers increasingly sign up to the market’s digital services. Total music revenue is forecast to rise at a CAGR of 5.0% to reach R2.8 billion in 2021.

Recorded music set to rise on the back of healthy streaming growth. As in many markets, audiences are not only turning away from owning physical music product, but they are also set to reduce their consumption of digital downloads, with downloading revenue forecast to decline for the first time in 2017 by 7%. South Africa is able to boast a wide range of music streaming services, with newcomers still coming to market with differentiated, competitive offers, further boosting consumer demand for subscription-based listening.

 

  • Physical recorded music is in steep decline. Sales totalled just R463 million in 2016, down from R562 million in the previous year, and from R992 million in 2012. Physical recorded music revenue is forecast to decrease at a CAGR of -18.4% over the next five years to be worth only R168 million in 2021.

 

  • Live music plays a key, and growing, role. Ticket sales and sponsorship revenue will continue to rise at a pace that will see live music take an increasing share of total music revenue, increasing from 55% in 2016 to 62% in 2021. Live music revenue will rise from R1.2 billion in 2016 to total R1.7 billion in 2021, a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period.

 

The headline change in the music industry has to be the marked consumer shift away from purchasing and owning recorded music to showing an increasing preference for subscription-based, music-rental services. A similar trend is being experienced across the globe in the consumer music-streaming spending figures and forecasts, with the rate of change the only significant differentiator.

 

As with other markets, that shift to subscription-based streaming looks to have come at a cost to the music industry, with a sharp decline in digital music downloads, a format that is losing favour in most countries. Music-streaming platforms will continue to grow, with much of that activity driven by the region’s younger demographics.

 

As in many developed markets, streaming has proved the saviour of the recorded music industry in South Africa. A healthy mix of local and international players have combined to create a compelling service for consumers, and uptake is easily enough to offset the fast-declining physical and downloads market.

 

Coupled with a live music market in good shape, the music segment has a positive outlook over the next five years.

PwC Report : The future of Radio in SA

Posted by radio On October - 3 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

The South African radio market will continue to grow each year. Advertising revenue, which makes up the entirety of total revenue, will pass the R5 billion mark in 2020 as advertising agencies capitalise on South Africa’s loyal radio listenership.

 

The South African radio market totalled R4.4 billion in 2016, up 2.4% on the previous year. Over the next five years, total radio revenue will grow at a 3.9% CAGR, hitting R5.4 billion in 2021.

 

Radio advertising revenue is projected to increase each year of the forecast period and opportunities for further advertising growth lie in the rise of smartphone usage, access to affordable data and data-driven campaigns.

As the number of mobile phones increases, more consumers can access radio content as and when they like, widening the potential for advertising investment as listenership grows across community, public broadcaster and commercial stations.

 

Total radio revenue in South Africa will continue to grow. Radio revenue will increase at a 3.9% CAGR over the next five years, with revenue rising to R5.4 billion in 2021. DAB+ and DRM trials continue. These trials will continue across South Africa throughout 2017, with all three tiers of radio broadcasters participating.

  • Radio apps grow in popularity. The rise in radio apps like Radio South Africa and the release of smartphones that enable DAB+ offer consumers further opportunities to listen on the go.

 

  • Local content policy impacts listenership. Listenership has faced a period of uncertainty after the implementation of a 90% local content policy on radio stations by the SABC in 2016.

 

  • Advertising revenue is on the rise. Ad revenue will increase as stations enjoy an enduring base of loyal listeners, enabling agencies to improve targeted ad campaigns. Connected listeners, fuelling data-driven campaigns, will be the enablers of—still nascent— programmatic advertising opportunities.

 

  • The portable radio remains the device of choice. Portable radios are popular, but a rise in mobile Internet subscribers should help mobile listening make gains.

Naspers increases stake in Delivery Hero

Posted by radio On September - 28 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

Naspers, a global internet and entertainment group and one of the largest technology investors in the world, today announced a transaction to obtain 22,359,857 shares of Delivery Hero stock from Rocket Internet for €660m (US$775m) at a price of €29.50 per share. The purchase increases Naspers’ stake to 23.6% and positions the company as the largest shareholder in Delivery Hero.

 

 

Naspers initially invested in Delivery Hero in May of this year. Since then, the company executed a successful IPO in June and delivered strong half-year results as a public company on September 26, 2017.

 

 

“Delivery Hero is already the leading online food ordering and delivery marketplace in most of the countries in which it operates and our increased investment demonstrates our confidence in the long-term prospects for the company. The food delivery sector is still underpenetrated and growing rapidly across the world. Many markets have experienced significant traction already, but we believe the potential is far greater in high-growth markets than that observed in the West,” Naspers CEO, Bob van Dijk said.

 

 

“We are delighted that Naspers is increasing its stake in Delivery Hero. We share the same long-term belief in our business and we will continue to benefit from their experience to grow our business globally,” said Niklas Östberg, CEO, Delivery Hero.

 

 

Growing its position in online food ordering and delivery is consistent with Naspers’ strategy to invest in platforms with global potential that offer online marketplace services in high-growth markets. Delivery Hero has outstanding growth prospects and has high levels of consumer engagement in the markets where it operates. In addition to the investment in Delivery Hero, Naspers recently led an $80M Series E investment in Swiggy, a leading food ordering and delivery platform in India. Through majority-owned Movile, Naspers has a leading food delivery business in iFood, operating in Brazil and Mexico (under the brand SinDelantal), and Naspers also operates Mr. D Food, a food delivery business in South Africa.

 

 

The transaction is subject to regulatory approval, will be funded from existing resources, and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018.

Simphiwe Dana – One Night at The Lyric Theatre

Posted by radio On September - 28 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

Kaya FM & Bassline Live are honoured to be hosting the living legend songstress Simphiwe Dana to the live series of events at the Lyric Theatre in Gold Reef City on the 11 November.

 

Already lauded as one of the most important singers, cultural activists and fashion icons of our time, Ms. Dana has yet to grace the series that has seen the likes of Oliver Mtukudzi, Thandiswa Mazwai and The Soil being booked.

 

 

Therefore, it is only fitting, as the musical series grows from strength to strength, that this globally-revered world music artist join the ranks and add to the solid reputation that Kaya FM & Bassline Live have created with these top quality shows.

 

Simphiwe Dana is more than just a singer – since her debut release Zandisilie in 2004, anyone who heard her music or encountered her on stage has been moved by her fierce determination and grit to not only embed herself into the hearts of her fans through song, but to constantly give back to South Africa at large with her awareness of socio-economic challenges faced in the various communities.  She is a voice for the voiceless and shakes political landscapes, whilst the natural God-given talent of her voice and song-writing seem to come as a natural conduit to compliment her personal and more heartfelt passions.

 

With this kind of path was impossible to stop the force that was Simphiwe Dana.  From her debut album raking in numerous awards and instantly being released in Europe, to becoming the number one selling Music artist on the German World Music Charts and number three on the European Music Charts with her album Kulture Noir, musically she has yet to step a foot wrong.

 

Simphiwe was also named ‘African Woman Of The Year’ in 2016 by New African Woman alongside the likes of artist Esther Mahlangu, athlete Caster Semenya and actress Lupito Nyong’o.  She strives to create conversation that will spark change and is seen as one of the leading and most impactful women in African arts and culture.  In fact so profound is Simphiwe Dana’s influence that her music has been incorporated into the curriculum at Oxford University, no small feat for even the most established of musician considering that to date Simphiwe has only released 4 studio albums and 2 Live DVD’s.

 

She has just recently completed the recording of what she states to be a dream come true in “The Simphiwe Dana Symphony Experience”, which featured international guests Asa and Concha Buika as well as a 60-piece orchestra.  Simphiwe opened the floor to an auspicious audience including Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and a host of other awe-struck guests.  The DVD recording is an exceptional production and a true testament to the multi-talented aspects of this stars’ personality.

 

Simphiwe, known for her grace and conviction, also serves as the first global African ambassador for Amnesty International and the African Union’s Africa Re-imagined Creative Hub (ARCH), a programme that is dedicated to establishing how the arts, culture and heritage sectors can contribute to the AU’s Agenda 2063.  Simphiwe continues to put into action her strong beliefs about socio-economic development and was appointed the ambassador for the Primestars 2015 ‘Step Up 2 A Start Up’ programme which focused on educating grade 10 to 12 pupils on how to become successful entrepreneurs.

 

Thirteen years into her career, Simphiwe Dana remains a hurricane of success, enlightenment, upliftment and soul-stirring entertainment.  Although with the power of her work it seems fickle to even mention her outstanding fashion sense and beauty, there is no denying that the package that encompasses this star is as monumental as the sum of her shine.  Simphiwe Dana is without a doubt, a true queen.

With a limited amount of tickets, the Lyric Theatre is predicted to sell out fast – make sure you book now at Computicket for R250 to avoid disappointment.

Launching of the new edition of Digital Africa, an innovation competition to take up the challenge of digital transition in Africa

 

 

Deadline for startups to submit their projects on DigitalAfrica.AFD.fr is the 22nd of October
 

 

For the 40th birthday of Proparco, the subsidiary of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD, French Development Agency) (www.AFD.fr) focused on private sector, AFD, Bpifrance (www.Bpifrance.fr) and the La French Tech (www.LaFrenchTech.com) have launched on 19 September the second edition of Digital Africa, a startup competition and digital innovation to support sustainable development in Africa. The first edition of the Digital Africa challenge, launched in October 2016, received more than 500 applications and rewarded 10 start-ups which convinced the judging panel on the potential impact of their innovation. Building on this success, AFD, Bpifrance and La French Tech have decided to renew the experience with the objective of offering a long-term support to the emergence of mature and solid digital ecosystems, catalysers of new economic opportunities.

Digital technology, a great accelerator of Africa’s development 

Digital revolution is transforming the African continent. It’s an innovative catalyst that revolutionizes economies and societies. Ecology, energy, culture, education, artistic creation, governance, and media: digital technology has a transversal and multiplying impact in all those key sectors.

“Digital innovation is abundant in Africa. Africans are making a technological leap that accelerates the emergence of the continent. Through Digital Africa, AFD supports emblematic start-ups of the digital African ecosystems, and fulfils its mission of development in the service of education and innovation, in the digital age.

By promoting the links between French and African entrepreneurs today, our ecosystems are building a common future. Digital Africa is for French Tech an additional step to bring this ambition with Africa”, David Monteau, La French Tech Director, Ministry of Economy and Finance.

 

A fully customized program 

All the startup winners of this second edition of the Digital Africa challenge will benefit from a high visibility and access an international network of partners, clients and investors. They will be part of a community that gathers the best talents of digital innovation in Africa and for Africa, in order to share experiences and good practices.

The 5 French winning startups will be accompanied by Bpifrance up to a 10.000 euros value support pack to strengthen their expertise and develop new opportunities on the African continent: Bpifrance Université training, networking and discovery trip to Abidjan and Cape Town with the French entrepreneurs community in the French Tech Hubs.
