BSkyB is on a roll – this is the fourth year in a row that the satellite broadcaster has topped its sector, praised especially for its marketing and quality of goods and services. BSkyB’s Q1 results show revenue up 4% year on year to £1.72bn, and profits up 5% to £310m. Pearson is solidly in second place after an action-packed year including the impending departure of CEO Marjorie Scardino, and the proposed joint-venture between Penguin and Bertelsmann’s Random House. Pearson also acquired educational services firm EmbanetCompass for $650m. New BMAC entrant internet sport distributor Perform Group manages a respectable third. It operates video-on-demand services and owns sports websites including Goal.com.
