RDF Media channels 67% sales hike

Company's profit hits $9 million

LONDON — Leading U.K. indie RDF Media, whose show “Wife Swap” is heading for a fourth U.S. season on ABC, reported a 67% hike in sales as the company announced its full-year results.

Sales increased to £99.3 million ($195.6 million) for the year ended Jan. 31 from $117.2 million as net profit nudged upward at $9 million vs. $8.5 million a year earlier.

New fare made for the British market, such as “The Secret Millionaire” and “Oz and James’ Big Wine Adventure,” alongside warhorses like “Wife Swap” and “Scrapheap Challenge,” kept RDF’s U.K. production offices busy.

CEO David Frank said, “In the U.K., the U.S. and other major territories across the globe into which we sell, the demand for popular programming and formats remains strong.

“Through RDF Rights, we are now better positioned than ever to manage the exploitation of the associated global secondary rights income.

“Our confidence about the future is also underpinned by a further strengthening of our rights-ownership position, particularly in new media, and the potential for new revenue streams from emerging broadcast technologies.”
