MDA says preliminary profit rose in fourth quarter

TORONTO, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Real estate data provider MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd MDA.TO reported a preliminary fourth-quarter profit on Tuesday that rose with higher revenue and despite a stronger Canadian dollar.

The company, which is selling its space robotics and data-processing business to U.S.-based Alliant Techsystems Inc ATK.N for $1.33 billion, said it earned C$30 million, or 70 Canadian cents per share, in the three months ended Dec. 31. That was up from a profit of C$22 million, or 51 Canadian cents per share, in the same period a year earlier.
