TORONTO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Canadian stock exchange operator TMX Group Inc (X.TO) said on Wednesday its third-quarter profit rose 19 percent, helped by higher revenues related to the integration of the Montreal Exchange, which it acquired earlier this year.
TMX Group, which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange, said net income was C$50.9 million ($41.4 million), or 66 Canadian cents a share, in the three months ended Sept 30. That compares with profit of C$42.7 million, or 62 Canadian cents a share, in the year-earlier period.
