TalkTalk's third quarter revenue rose 5.1 per cent to 436m pounds as the telecoms company secured new TV and mobile phone customers.
On-net revenues grew by 9.6% driven by base growth and an increase in average revenue per user, reflecting successful pricing activity and new product penetration. It was partly off-set by the mix impact of Post Office customers and promotional investment.
During the period the company achieved 110,000 total broadband net adds.
Excluding the Post Office base, the firm grew its fully unbundled base by 49,000 customers. The Post Office contributed a total of 103,000 customers to the base, comprising 81,000 fully unbundled customers, 3,000 partially unbundled and 19,000 off-net customers.
TalkTalk also added 175,000 net new customers to the TV business, bringing the total to 732,000.
The group added 24,000 new mobile and 35,000 new fibre customers, following strong promotional activities.
TalkTalk also gained 49% in data revenues, which drove the 8.8% growth in the Corporate business.
Chief Executive, Dido Harding, said: "We are delighted with the material step up in our revenue growth during the quarter, which shows the powerful effect of combining a modestly growing customer base, disciplined pricing and promotional activity, and strong new product growth particularly in TV.
"We are on track to deliver our full-year guidance and our medium term targets of 4% revenue compound annual growth rate (FY14-17) and 25% earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) margin by full-year 2017."
British-based property investment and development business St. Modwen Properties booked a 56% increase in full-year pre-tax profit as the housing market recovery gathered momentum in 2013.
The company, which specialises in regeneration and remediation of brownfield land and urban environments, said pre-tax profit rose to £82.2m for the year ended November 30th from £52.8m the previous year.
Net asset values rose 11% to 279p per share while realised property profits rose 37% to £40m.
Chief Executive Bill Oliver commented: "Against this improving backdrop, we achieved a number of important milestones across our business. This has been illustrated by another strong set of results.
"The improvement in the housing market is well documented, driven by strong demand from customers for our homes, and from housebuilders for our development-ready land. The recovery in the nationwide commercial property market also looks to be gathering momentum and we are optimistic for 2014.
The group, which raised £49m last March through a equity placing, said it expects retail markets to remain challenging but is confident of securing new leases at competitive rents and create new retail environments.
St. Mowden has increased its final dividend by 10% to 2.67p per share, providing a total dividend for 2013 of 4.00p per share, up from 3.63p in 2012.
