ITV delivers another year of strong growth

2013 was another strong year for ITV, both operationally and financially, as we continue to make progress with our strategy of growing and rebalancing the business. External revenues were up 9%, with non-NAR revenues up £175 million (17%), and for the fourth year in a row we delivered double digit profit growth.
