Optus ekes out tiny profit rise

Optus has managed to lift its annual net profit by 1.5 per cent to $787 million despite intense competition from its telco rivals.

The result for the year to March 31 was unveiled as Optus, which is owned by Singapore Telecommunications, announced its fourth quarter net profit also rose 2.1 per cent to $267 million.
