Billionaire Vladimir Yevtushenkov’s Sistema holding said Thursday that third-quarter net profit rose 27 percent quarter on quarter to $183 million, due to a strengthening economy.

Sistema, which controls Mobile TeleSystems and midsized oil producer Bashneft, said revenue rose 5.6 percent quarter on quarter to $7.3 billion, and was up 37 percent year on year.
