(Reuters) - Canadian telecom and media conglomerate Quebecor Inc (QBRb.TO) reported a 3.5 percent rise in quarterly adjusted income, helped by strong demand in its telecommunications and media businesses.

Adjusted income from continuing operations rose to C$50.3 million ($39.6 million), or 41 Canadian cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, from C$48.6 million, or 39 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose nearly 3 percent to C$989.4 million.

On a net basis, the company reported a quarterly loss attributable to shareholders of C$59.5 million, compared with a year-ago profit attributable to shareholders of C$300,000, largely due to a C$34.5 million non-cash impact related to goodwill and intangible assets.
