ITV reports 7% revenue growth for H1/2014

itvIn reporting H1 2014 results today Adam Crozier, ITV Chief Executive, said:

“We have made further good progress with our strategy of growing and strengthening all parts of ITV. In the first six months of the year we again delivered double digit profit growth in every area of the business and increased revenues by 7%. ITV Family NAR was up 7%, ahead of the TV advertising market and Online, Pay & Interactive performed strongly, up 20%. Share of viewing improved during Q2, helped by the FIFA World Cup, and we’re confident of our strong Autumn schedule with both new and returning drama and entertainment. Online, Pay & Interactive is on track to deliver strong growth for the year as a whole, at least in line with the first half. The economic recovery is leading to an improved advertising market, with good growth across all key categories and ITV is well placed to take market share. We expect ITV Family NAR to be up around 6% in the nine months to the end of September and we will significantly outperform the market over the full year.
