Empire Co posts bigger profit as revenue gains

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Fourth-quarter profit at Empire Co Ltd (EMPa.TO) rose more than 2.5 percent as bigger revenue and strong results from its Sobeys supermarket chain helped results, the Canadian food and real estate company said on Thursday.

Empire said it earned C$66.5 million ($65.8 million), or C$1.01 a share, in the quarter ended May 3, up from C$64.8 million, or 99 Canadian cents per share, in the same period last year.
