The Newport Beach-based glass manufacturer said revenue also is expected to increase 15% to $325 million, compared with $284 million for 1984.
For the fourth quarter, net income is expected to total $6.3 million, compared with net income of $5.2 million for the same period last year. Revenue for the fourth quarter is expected to reach $90 million, compared with $76 million for the same period a year ago.
"Demand across the board has remained strong," said Gary Miller, treasurer.
For the first nine months, AFG posted net income of $14.7 million, up 14% from net income of $12.9 million for the same period a year earlier. Revenue for the nine months was $235 million, compared to $207 million for the first nine months of 1984.
