Investment company Sprott Inc. says its profits rose 64 per cent in the first quarter as it booked stronger revenues from the purchase of the Global Group of Companies.

Sprott's net income was $10.6-million, or 7 cents per share, up from $6.4-million or 4 cents per share a year ago, the Toronto-based firm announced Thursday.

Revenue grew to $39.5-million from $25.7-million as it began to recognize results from the Global Group of Companies.
