Oz’s Becker boosts profit for year

SYDNEY — Aussie film and TV producer-distribber the Becker Group on Thursday announced a 10.2% hike in post-tax profit to A$4.7 million ($3.5 million) on revenues of $29.4 million for the year ended June 30.

Pre-tax profit jumped 9.8% to $5.5 million for the group, whose interests include L.A.-based Becker FilmWorks.
