TOKYO, May 9 (Reuters) - Japanese conglomerate SoftBank Group Corp's full-year operating profit rose 80.5 percent due to the rising valuations of its tech investments, beating estimates.
The tech and telecoms group's operating profit was 2.4 trillion yen ($21.84 billion) in the financial year ended March.
That compared with a 2.1 trillion yen SmartEstimate that gives a greater weighting to top-rated analysts, according to Refinitiv data.
