  2. About Viacom

    :This page is about the post-2005 Viacom. For the company known as Viacom prior to 2006 (and now known as CBS Corporation), see Viacom (1971-2005).

    Viacom is an American media conglomerate with various worldwide interests in cable and satellite television networks (MTV Networks and BET), and movie production and distribution (the Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks movie studios). Sumner Redstone is the Chairman and, through National Amusements, the majority shareholder.

    The new Viacom is considered to be the "high-growth" side of the much larger former Viacom. The former Viacom was renamed CBS Corporation, from which this firm was split off on December 31, 2005. CBS, not Viacom, retains control of the over-the-air broadcasting, TV production, and publishing assets formerly owned by the larger company. However, National Amusements remains the common majority shareholder of both firms."

    2. For the Network18 group, FY2009 was a year of severe pressure in terms of both operations and fund availability. In our opinion, things are unlikely to get any worse. With the advertising market showing nascent signs of recovery on the back of considerable easing of the growth concerns among corporate India, Network18's properties are likely to bounce back. Thus, with Network 18 sufficiently funded to take care of the gestation period of its ventures and the funding requirements of its businesses (especially for Viacom 18), being the holding company of the group it would create significant value for equity holders in the longer term. Thus, we recommend buy rating to the company.
