Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and depreciation climbed 14 percent to $59.2m, and revenue gained 18 percent to $80.4m.
Chief executive Jon Macdonald said the company was comfortable with analysts' forecasts for annual earnings, with trading in the last six weeks consistent with the first half.

Trade Me's board declared an interim dividend of 7.5 cents per share.
