March 14 (Reuters) - Convenience store operator Alimentation Couche Tard reported a 4.7 percent increase in quarterly profit on Tuesday, boosted by acquisitions that helped expand its business.
Laval, Quebec-based Couche Tard said net income rose to $287 million or 50 cents per share in the third quarter ended Jan. 29, from $274 million or 48 cents per share, a year earlier.
Total revenue jumped 22.3 percent to $11.42 billion.
Couche Tard, one of Canada’s most acquisitive companies, has been expanding globally through deals in Europe, Canada and the United States.
In August, it announced a $4.4 billion deal to buy U.S. convenience store retailer CST Brands Inc, in its biggest deal to date. (Reporting by Ahmed Farhatha in Bengaluru; Editing by Sai Sachin Ravikumar)
