EDMOTNON — ATB Financial earned a profit of $244.8 million for its latest financial year , an increase of 25 per cent from $195.1 million the year before.

The Alberta Crown corporation says operating revenues were $1.2 billion for the year ended March 31, 2013, up from 1.1 billion last year.

Non-interest expenses were up slightly to $865.9 million from $843.6 million.
