Top Right, formerly known as Emap, almost doubled pre-tax profits to £52.4m in 2011, thanks largely to a reduction in exceptional costs.
The company's trade magazine publishing and data divisions reported year-on-year declines in pre-tax profits, of 35% and 10% respectively; while its conference and events division grew pre-tax profit by just over 15%.
Top Right, which owns businesses including Retail Week and Drapers, as well as events such as World Retail Congress and trend analysis firm WGSN, said total revenue rose by just over 3% year-on-year to £249.4m.
