The Brick Ltd. says its first-quarter profit was $4.7-million, or 4 cents a share.

The result is a sharp increase from the $3.6-million, or a penny per share, the Edmonton-based company logged in the opening quarter of 2011.

The company says the improvement in net income was driven primarily by improved gross margin along with reduced depreciation and amortization and reduced finance costs.
