Network nets $50.5 mil on $319 mil revenue

PARIS — French private network M6 on Thursday posted net profits of 59.7 million euros ($50.5 million) for the first half of the year, up a massive 44.5% over the same period in 1999.

Revenues stood at $319.3 million, a 21% increase on last year’s figure.

Company said it benefited from a 28.3% hike in ad coin linked to an increase in M6’s market share and the numbers reflect an overall rise in TV advertising revenue.
