Internet portal Yahoo Japan Corp. said Tuesday its group net profit for April to December last year rose 20.6 percent to ¥56.0 billion on sales of ¥220.8 billion, up 17.6 percent, thanks to robust demand for Internet advertising.

While television and newspaper ad demand has weakened amid the global economic deterioration, Internet ad demand has remained brisk, Yahoo said.
