NCR Corp. reported a profit of $13 million for the first quarter, up from a loss of $19 million a year earlier.

The Duluth, Ga., automated teller machine and kiosk maker's revenue rose 6% to $1.1 billion. Its loss last year was due to lower demand for ATMs in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America.

Nuti also credited its emerging industries and entertainment business lines.
