WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - Medical diagnostics company Alere Inc. said Wednesday it returned to profit in the third quarter as revenue grew, and because of a big gain related to a joint venture with Procter Gamble Co.

The company reported a profit of $234.2 million, or $2.48 per share. Excluding a $288.9 million gain connected to the venture with P and other one-time charges, Alere earned 67 cents per share in its latest quarter. A year ago the company posted a net loss of $2.8 million, or 3 cents per share. Adjusted to exclude one-time charges, the company said it earned 59 cents a year ago.

Analysts expected the company to report an adjusted profit of 58 cents per share and $584.8 million in revenue, according to FactSet. Shares of Alere jumped $3.06, or 14.5 percent, to close at $24.18.

Alere said revenue from its professional diagnostic business Monster Beats Outlet grew 18 percent to $430 million, helped by greater influenza revenue in North America, and revenue from recent acquisitions. Revenue from its health management business fell 15 percent to $129.9 million as state governments cut back on their spending and Medicare revised its billing guidance.
