May 4 (Reuters) - Exco Technologies Ltd’s second-quarter profit rose 35 percent, helped by higher demand for the products of the Canadian auto parts maker.
Exco, a maker of die casts, moulds, and components for the die-cast, extrusion and automotive industries, expects to gain from higher light vehicle production volumes and the introduction of new vehicles in the coming quarters.
January-March earnings were C$5.5 million, or 14 Canadian cents a share, up from C$2.2 million, or 5 Canadian cents a share, a year ago.
Quarterly sales rose 35 percent to C$52.9 million.
Analysts, on average, had expected earnings of 9 Canadian cents a share, on revenue of C$46 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
