CALGARY — Shaw Communications Inc. reported a second-quarter profit of $155 million compared with a loss of $175 million a year earlier.
The company says the profit amounted to 30 cents per share for the three cents ended Feb. 28 compared with a loss of 35 cents per share in the same quarter last year.
Revenue for the quarter totalled $1.32 billion, down from $1.33 billion a year ago.
The dip in revenue came as the company’s wireline business, which includes its traditional cable and satellite TV, internet and phone operations, held steady at about $1.07 billion.
Wireless revenue dipped to $247 million compared with $264 million a year ago as a drop in equipment revenue more than offset an increase in service revenue.
Analysts on average had expected a profit of 30 cents per share for the quarter and revenue of $1.37 billion, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.
