TORONTO – The owner of Tim Hortons and Burger King says first-quarter profit rose compared with a year earlier as its sales also climbed higher.

The result was up from net income of US$277 million or 61 cents per diluted share a year earlier.

The company, which keeps its books in U.S. dollars, says revenue totalled US$1.74 billion for the quarter ended March 31, up from US$1.59 billion in the same quarter last year.

The increase came as consolidated comparable sales rose 4.6 per cent.
