  • A number of factors contributed to the jump in receipts. TV revenue was boosted by new licensing deals with several of India's broadcast networks, and a good year for public performance saw total domestic performing rights double in the year.
  • A readmittance to global rights organization CISAC meant IPRS could receive payments from CISAC-member societies.
