Synutra International (SYUT) shares advanced in extended trading after the Chinese baby-formula maker reported fiscal Q4 profit more than tripled and provided full-year revenue guidance above Wall Street’s estimates.

Shares of the Rockville, Maryland-based company was up 3.7% at $6.60 after closing up 3.1% at $6.36 on Monday.
