RDF media’s revs surge

Reality guru reaches 23.9% increase

British indie RDF Media, maker of “Wife Swap” on both sides of the Atlantic, has posted strong annual results.

Total revenue increased 23.9% to £62.3 million ($117 million), and gross profit climbed 18.2% to $32 million.

U.S. revenue, which included the second season of “Wife Swap” for ABC, rose by 0.9% during the year.

Other shows contributing to RDF’s U.S. performance were “Survival of the Richest” for Warner Bros. and “Ice-T’s Rap School” for VH1.

“Wife Swap” has been renewed for a third season in a deal that will generate more than $10 million in revenue, which will contribute to the current financial year.

Hinting at future acquisitions, CEO David Frank said: “With continuing organic growth and the prospect of further selective acquisitions, I believe we are well positioned to take advantage of the significant opportunities in our market.”

Results are the first since RDF floated on Blighty’s Alternative Investment Market last year.
