Jang & Geo’s Mole Gets CAUGHT Red-handed Attempting to Infiltrate BOL

  • Murkier side of Geo TV Network & Mir Shakeel ur Rehman gets exposed yet again after attempting to infiltrate competitor media network, BOL group.                                                                                                        
  • As per a credible source in a Federal Agency, Bol has caught the infiltrator in action along with the trail leading directly to Geo TV Management via “controlled& planted bait”.

The green-eyed monster of envy that Jang and Geo Network harbours for its competitors is no news for anyone in the Pakistani Media Industry. While Jang and Geo Group’s owners Mir Shakeel ur Rehman and Mir Ibrahim have left no stone unturned in trying to sabotage the top name in their hit-list, Bol Media Group – the media network that has been successful in getting the top names like Kamran Khan, Azhar Abbas and Iftikhar Ahmed, Maria Memon, Madiha Naqvi, Mansoor Ali Khan from many others from Geo alone.However, so far Jang and Geo group have not only been unsuccessful but also got exposed for their treacherous attempts.

Blinded bytheir desire to avenge their loss & to get all the crucial intel of their top competitor, this time around Mir Shakeel & Co. went for an even more underhanded tactic by planting a MOLE within BOL. The mole identified as Owais was directly in contact with a Jang and Geo Group official, Mr. Sarmad who told him to get important information about Bol channel’s programming strategies and to execute a security breach attempting intellectual property espionage.

The plan and the player were all in place for the execution of mass data theft – only with one oversight: trying to attempt a massive security breach within a media house backed by an IT company!” guffawed an LEA officer, “Apparently people at Bol already had a contingency planned for this mishap, so the mole got caught in action like a fish takes a bait! Not only the whole mission went to the gutter but the perpetrators of the entire scheme must be bashing their heads knowing that all the “leaked information” was nothing but a decoy that also serves as a tracing bait from the source to the user –“

On enquiring about what happened to the mole, the officer said, “The guy is in BIG trouble. The guys at NR3C in FIA take such type of data theft very grimly! Just a day behind the bars and the guy spilled out all the info about his benefactors and contact at Jang and Geo. He told us to contact them to help bail him out but so far, they have not responded to any of his calls or messages, which is very predictable behavior from GEO. Pitiful if you ask me- the idiot lost his job, destroyed his career singlehandedly and God knows what awaits him as the case proceeds while the ones who got him into this mess have turned their backs on him.”

Now that the situation has been taken under control, apparently Bol TV officials are keen on keeping the attempted breach undercover to avoid unnecessary attention. Bol network is proceeding with pressing charges against the culprit and his abettors Jang & Geo Group, and hence the case might prove to be the another lighting strike to the lightening rod of our media industry, Jang & Geo Group all thanks to their devious ways.

BOL MEDIA – See who is getting salary of Rs. 2 CRORE Per MONTH!!

  • BOL’s Financial Feasibility Report LEAKED – In the report Media group valued at Rs. 100 billion with 20 Crore per month of profits.

  • Azhar Abbas, Kamran Khan and TWO MORE MEDIA PERSONNEL become billionaires (names given below in the article)

BOL Network entered the Pakistani Media Industry with an announcement that created a ripple effect among all the employees associated with the industry. With lavish salary packages unprecedented in the history of our media industry, everyone in the media industry you met is telling that he or she has applied for a job. Despite many naysayers doubting that a channel would ever go for offering such bountiful remuneration package, many known media personnel including famous anchorpersons and producers also expressed the desire for the media network – and apparently, they haven’t put their faith in wrong place!

With recently leaked BOL’s Financial Feasibility Report, the BOL’s “baray bol” do not seem farfetched! In fact, the report reveals the entire profit model on which BOL is planning to enter the market with all the buzz about them being the paymasters in the industry. The report shows BOL’s projected monthly expenses and earnings. Based on the profit earned on the projections, the report goes on to discuss the entire financial plan for BOL based on the competitor and market analysis.

BOL LEAKED REPORT Final

The revenue projections are based on the latest claimed revenue figures of the current market leader with revenue in the range of Rs 35-40 crore per month (GEO news in good old days before April 2004). It was assumed that BOL will become a market leader and is expected to earn revenue around 50-55 Crore per month. This NO.1 slot is something which now looks like pretty certain for BOL with the Kind of bang with which it is entering the market.

This revenue and summary of some broad expenses as shown in the feasibility are simplified below:

Total Earnings per month = 55 Crore Considering the 17 top names joining BOL earn upto an average figure of Rs 7,500,000/month, the expenses on their salary = 13 Crore (Approx. rounded figure)Salary of Other Employees= 10 crore

Other operating expenses = 12 Crore

Profit Expected per month = 550,000,000 – (130,000,000 +100,000,000 + 120,000,000) =

 

MONTHLY PROFIT OF RS 200,000,000 (200 million per month)

Another important factor in this report is the valuation of the company and how the equity is transferred to the employees. The company valuation of Rs. 100 billion might look like an underestimation. With a 5 billion paid up capital and 200 million per month of profits this valuation should be much higher than this when you compare it to HUM TV’’s (HUMNL) current Market Cap o Rs.12 Billion (the only publicly listed media company).

With 4 names mentioned in the report as ALREADY been awarded the ownership in the group through distribution of share certificates, namely: Azhar Abbas, Kamran Khan, Amir Liaquat and Jerjees Seja, BOL TV is surely turning them overnight into billionaires! The concept of such wealth distribution along with ownership is alien to Pakistani market but it is not a concept unheard of internationally; with top companies like Facebook etc making many top level officials overnight billionaires through distribution of Stock options.

This distribution of wealth among the employees without hoarding the entire profits only for the Seth, is surely a welcome change in Pakistani Media Industry. The Profit earned that has been used to build personal empires abroad with millions of dollar spent by the Seths of the media industry on lavish houses and Rolls Royces will now be distributed among the employees who actually work for the organization. With competition rising through BOL’s entrance and taking the first step in this direction, this is hoped to evolve in to a practice among all media houses to value their most important resource – Human Resource by giving them competitive benefits as well as stake in the media empires to empower them.
