April 28 (Reuters) - Canadian property management company FirstService Corp FSV.TO posted a narrower quarterly loss, helped mainly by growth in its commercial estate services division.
Net loss in the first quarter shrunk to $526,000, or 2 cents a share, from $48.5 million, or $1.54 a share, a year earlier.
On an adjusted basis, the company posted earnings of 15 cents a share.
Analysts on average were expecting the company to earn 17 cents a share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Revenue was up 11 percent to $402.4 million, helped by a 30 percent rise in sales at Colliers International, the company’s commercial real estate services arm.
Colliers posted a profit for the first time since 2007, reflecting an improvement in the real estate markets, Chief Executive Jay Hennick said in a statement.
