Central European Media Jumps on Report Earnings Improved
Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (CETV) jumped the most in three months after a report that the company’s 2011 Oibda, or operating income before depreciation and amortization, probably rose 60 percent from a year ago.
The shares of CME, as the broadcaster is known, surged 7.2 percent to 141.5 koruna at the close in Prague, its biggest one- day rally since Oct. 21. The company’s U.S.-traded shares climbed 5.2 percent to $7.14 by 11:47 a.m. in New York.
CME has a “sufficient” liquidity of $200 million in cash, and a debt payment of $130 million due next year is not a problem, Chief Executive Officer Adrian Sarbu told Hospodarske Noviny in an interview published today.
