(Reuters) - TMX Group Ltd X.TO, owner of Canada’s biggest stock exchange, reported a better-than-expected second-quarter profit.
Net income was C$25.5 million ($24.8 million), or 47 Canadian cents per share.
Comparing the Toronto Stock Exchange operator’s performance versus a year ago is complicated because a consortium of Canadian financial institutions bought TMX last September and rolled in the smaller Alpha exchange and Canadian Depository for Securities Ltd, a trading clearinghouse.
The company reported adjusted earnings of 89 Canadian cents per share, beating the average analyst forecast of 69 Canadian cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
