The company continues to release innovative products and services. As a UFB kick-starter campaign the company offered free fibre installations for some customers till end-2012. In 2012, Kordia’s overall revenue increased by over 30% as the transformation of an analogue based broadcasting company into a diversified company takes effect. As the company moved into the next couple of years the shutdown of analogue transmissions will affect overall revenue but the company has strong prospects of increased revenue and growth.
