July 29 (Reuters) - Canadian fuel-cell maker Ballard Power Systems BLD.TO swung to a quarterly profit, mainly boosted by one-time gains from dissolving its joint venture with Japan’s Ebara Corp (6361.T).
For the quarter ended June 30, the company posted a net profit of $1.0 million, or 1 cent per share, compared with a net loss of $13.5 million, or 16 cents per share, a year ago.
The quarterly results include a non-cash gain of $10.8 million related to the discontinuation of operations in EBARA Ballard Corporation, the company said in a statement.
Excluding these gains, Ballard posted a quarterly loss of $9.6 million, or 11 cents a share, compared with analysts expectations of a loss of 13 cents a share, according to Reuters Esimates.

For the full year, Ballard expects revenues of $50 million to $60 million compared with analyst estimates of $67.2 mln.
