M6 holds out against poor economic climate

Last year, the French group M6 demonstrated good resistance against the "deteriorated economic climate", posting consolidated revenue of €1.386 billion (down 2.4%) and a net profit of €140 million (down 6,3 %).
Consolidated profit from recurring operations (EBITA) totalled €218.5 million (down 10.8%), reflecting the decline in advertising revenues along with the M6 channel's investment in Euro 2012.
The group says it "outperformed the TV advertising market and recorded a decline of only 3% in advertising revenues" at €811 million, including M6 channel ad revenues reaching €647 million, down 4.3%.
Non-advertising revenues receded slightly in 2012 (down 1.6%) to €574.8 million.
