Carnival Q1 Profit Rises

Carnival (NYSE: CCL  ) has reported its fiscal Q1 2013 results. For the quarter, revenues totaled $3.59 billion, incrementally higher from the $3.58 billion the company posted in the same period the previous year. Non-GAAP net profit was $65 million ($0.08 per diluted share). That EPS figure was $0.02 higher than the company's previous guidance. The net result was a five-fold increase from the $13 million ($0.02) of Q1 2012.
