Oz Ten Network Forecasts Brighter Ad Outlook

30 March 2006

   SYDNEY - The broadcaster claims it sees some positive signs in the television advertising market Down Under.
   Ten Network reported a smaller than expected 21.8% fall in its first half net profit to A$42.8 million ($30.1m; €25.1m; £17.3m).
   Avers chairman Nick Falloon: "For the first time in three or four months, we are seeing some more positive signs [in] April, May." But he warns that March ad revenue will be significantly down on the same month a year ago.
