Growth of its Northern California customer base helped Woodland Hills auto insurer 20th Century Industries post a 15% increase in third-quarter profits and a 16% increase in profits for the first nine months of the year.

The company reported 1998 third-quarter net income of $38.2 million, or 44 cents per diluted share, compared with earnings of $33.2 million, or 41 cents per diluted share, in the 1997 third quarter.
