TORONTO — Rogers Communications Inc. has removed some "high level'' financial information from one of its websites after it was accidentally posted there by an employee.

A Rogers' spokeswoman says the financial information, which included annual revenues, was not related to its upcoming fourth-quarter financial results.

The information was briefly posted and removed last week from the website of Rogers Ventures Partners, which invests in technology startups.

Rogers says the information also included the size and the scope of the Toronto telecom company.

It included annual revenue in specific divisions of the company "rounded up to hundreds of millions of dollars.''

Rogers wouldn't say if the employee was disciplined, adding that it does not comment on human resources matters.

"The appropriate action would have been taken with the employee,'' spokeswoman Patricia Trott said Wednesday from Toronto.

"The employee posted some very broad-based, high-level annual information on the Rogers Ventures' website,'' Trott said.

"The information is not material to our upcoming earnings, but in the spirit of being prudent and cautious, we removed the information from the site.''

Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) plans to announce its fourth-quarter earnings for fiscal 2012 this Friday.
