Security products maker Allegion reports rising profit, revenue

Security-products company Allegion Plc on Thursday reported higher profit and revenue for the second quarter, beating analyst expectations.

The company posted revenue of $627 million in the period, also exceeding Wall Street forecasts. Three analysts surveyed by Zacks expected revenue of $613.4 million. Quarterly revenue was up 7.2 percent over the same period a year ago.

Allegion said it expects full-year earnings in the range of $3.65 to $3.80 per share.
