Two months back, the media company said it would cut about 15% of its workforce as part of a broader attempt to reduce costs to meet a key profit target.

Zee's business has struggled over the years, with advertising revenue falling to $488 million in 2022-23 from around $600 million five years earlier. Cash reserves also dropped about 25% in that period.

However, the company swung to a profit in the latest quarter, from a year-ago loss, helped by a rebound in advertising revenue.
