PARIS (Reuters) - Bollore Group, whose billionaire owner Vincent Bollore is under investigation for alleged corruption of officials in Africa, on Thursday reported a 6 percent increase in first quarter revenues to 5.33 billion euros (4.7 billion pounds) at constant exchange rates and perimeter.

Bollore Group also said it owed about 24 percent of media giant as of the end of March.

The company said higher revenues were driven by strong growth in its port activities and petroleum logistics.
