Canon's profit likely doubled on Toshiba unit purchase

Newly acquired Toshiba Medical Systems credited with 70% of gains

TOKYO -- Canon probably saw its group operating profit roughly double on the year in the January-March quarter to about 80 billion yen ($733 million), thanks to successful acquisitions and strong overseas sales of cameras and printers.

Sales apparently grew 20% to just over 950 billion yen. Official quarterly results are due out Wednesday.
