May 8 (Reuters) - GrubHub Inc’s quarterly profit more than tripled as more people used the online food-delivery service to order takeout meals.
Shares of GrubHub, which bought rival Seamless last year, rose as much as 8 percent in extended trading.
The company’s net income rose to $4.4 million, or 6 cents per share, in the quarter ended March 31 from $1.3 million, or 3 cents per share, a year earlier, before it bought Seamless.
Revenue more than doubled to $58.6 million. (Reporting By Sampad Patnaik in Bangalore; Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
