Rovi reports 4Q profit; beats Wall Street views

Rovi Corp. on Friday reported a profit in the fourth quarter as the company benefited from an increase in revenue and the absence of a loss from discontinued operations in the same quarter a year ago.

Rovi, which provides TV listings data and related services, said Thursday that it earned $2.6 million, or 2 cents per share, in the fourth quarter compared with a loss of $211.2 million, or $2.07 per share, a year earlier.

Excluding one-time items, Rovi earned 50 cents per share in the last three months of the year — 5 cents more than analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected.

Revenue rose 17 percent to $138 million from $118.2 million in 2008. [Read the full article]
