French TV group TF1 Q3 advertising revenues rise as lockdowns lifted

Oct 28 (Reuters) - French television group TF1 TFFP.PA on Wednesday reported a 7.5% rise in third-quarter advertising revenues, with advertising spend recovering across most sectors as lockdown restrictions were lifted over the summer.

The Paris-based company, which owns France's most popular channel, posted advertising revenues of 346.5 million euros ($409.5 million), while its core profit for the period nearly tripled year-on-year to 57.8 million euros.

TF1 scrapped its 2020 and 2021 guidance earlier in the year due to coronavirus-linked uncertainties facing French companies and households.
