April 27 (Reuters) - Canada’s Cameco Corp posted a first-quarter profit on Friday compared with a loss a year ago as the uranium producer benefited from lower costs and higher prices of the commodity.
Net earnings were C$55 million, or 14 Canadian cents per share, in the quarter ended March 31, compared with a loss of C$18 million, or 5 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose to C$439 million from C$393 million. (Reporting by Karan Nagarkatti in Bengaluru Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
