The acquisition of K-Tron International helped Hillenbrand Inc. report a 30 percent increase in third-quarter revenue, but the purchase also contributed to a 48 percent drop in net income.

Hillenbrand earned $13.3 million, or 22 cents per share, during the quarter, down from $25.4 million, or 41 cents per share, during the third quarter of 2009.

Excluding one-time items related to the acquisition, the company earned 45 cents per share. That was better than the 41 cents per share analysts on average were expecting, according to Thomson Reuters.
