July 27 (Reuters) - Canadian telecom services provider Bell Aliant Inc posted a quarterly profit that beat estimates, helped by improved growth rates of internet and television revenue and raised its full-year revenue outlook.
Bell Aliant now expects full year revenue of C$2.72-C$2.78 billion ($2.87-$2.93 billion), up from its prior view of C$2.65-C$2.75 billion.
It still expects 2011 adjusted earnings of C$1.60-$1.80 per share and capital expenditures of C$520-C$560 million.
Second quarter net income was C$83 million, or 36 Canadian cents per share.
Adjusted profit was 43 Canadian cents per share, topping analysts’ expectations of 39 Canadian cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Operating revenue fell 1 percent to C$693 million, but beat market estimates of C$682.8 million.
