Nation Media Group LtdNet income for the six-month period rose to 747
million shillings ($8.2 million) as sales climbed 17 percent to 5.2 billion
shillings, Chief Executive Officer Linus Gitahi told reporters
today in the capital, Nairobi.A rising inflation rate, weakening local
currency, drought and high energy costs pose "considerable economic risks"
for the rest of this year, Gitahi said.
"We remain cautiously optimistic for the remainder of the year even as we
pursue new market opportunities," he said. Nation Media plans opena radio
station in Rwanda by the end of the year and start operations
in South Sudan, Gitani said, without giving a timeframe.
I think they have plenty of Valuable Media Real Estate and that there
remains plenty of good Momentum. The Growth Trajectory I think can be
maintained at this Run Rate for the next 18 months.
