Higher sales abroad helped push Hypercom Corp. into the black in the first quarter.

The Scottsdale, Ariz., terminal maker reported a $375,000 first-quarter profit Wednesday, compared with a $9.9 million loss the year earlier.

Revenue was $98.8 million, up 19.3%, and Hypercom said its revenue grew in every region but the Americas.

Revenue from the Americas was $23.5 million, a 6% decline, which Hypercom attributed to its mid-2009 decision to drop a services contract in Brazil.
