The tech PR-heavy Next Fifteen Communications Group on Oct. 18 reported a 19% increase in fiscal year 2011 revenues to 86M compared with 2010 on growth in digital and strong performances from Outcast, Text 100 and Bite.

Net income rose 6.7% to top 5M for the year, which ended July 31.

"Digital is giving the group access to new revenue streams and helping to deliver strong growth in North America and Asia," said chairman Richard Eyre.

Tech PR, nearly 70 percent of the company's revenue, rose nine percent during the year, while consumer jumped 12% and corporate communications was up six percent. Eyre singled out Outcast and Text 100 in North America and Bite in Asia Pacific for the strong showing in tech.

Client wins for the period included GE, Nokia, Disney Consumer Products and Solazyme.

The fiscal year included the $11M acquisition of Blueshirt Group, as well as purchases of digital shop Type 3 and U.K.'s Bourne. Organic growth was up 11% for the year, excluding those deals.
