Kimberly-Clark Corp.'s (KMB) profit rose as the company reported $175 million in other income, helping boost profit as net sales grew just over 1%.

The drug company's profit was $671 million, up 49% from the comparable quarter a year earlier. Earnings were $1.94 a share, up from $1.29 a share.

Adjusted earnings were $1.84 a share, up from $1.71 a share. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting $1.80 a share.

Net sales were $4.64 billion, up 1.3%. Analysts were expecting $4.65 billion.

Kimberly-Clark reported net other income of $175 million up from $2 million a year earlier. The company said that includes about a $182 million gain before tax from selling "a manufacturing facility and associated real estate."

Gross profit also rose as the company's cost of products sold declined.
