Eros International delivered some final results, highlights as follows: Group turnover up 38.7% to US$ 156.7m (2008:US$ 113.0m) Gross Profit up 13.4% to US$ 71.5m (2008: US$ 63.0m) EBITDA up 41% to US$ 109.5 m (2008:US$ 77.9 m) with 62% of EBITDA converted to cash Profit before tax up 7% to US$ 48.4m (2008: US$ 45.5 m) Basic EPS per share up 5% to 35.1 cents (2008: 33.5 cents) With everything probably factored into the price already, Eros dropped off 3% on the day.
