Flamemaster Profits Rise Despite Drop in Revenue

Flamemaster Corp. said its fiscal first-quarter profit rose 19% from a year earlier despite an 8% decline in revenue.

The Sun Valley maker of sealants and coatings said net income in the quarter that ended Dec. 31 climbed to $29,635 from $24,863 a year earlier. Its revenue fell to $965,867 from $1.05 million.
