Shares of Superior Industries International gained 14.7% on Friday after the supplier of aluminum wheels reported a 4Q loss that was narrower than the Street’s expectations. Meanwhile, 4Q revenues came in ahead of consensus estimates.

Superior Industries (SUP) reported a 4Q loss of $0.05 per share, compared to the Street’s expectations for a loss of $0.11. Notably, the company reported a loss of $4.25 per share in the year-ago period. The improvement came on the back of a higher top-line and greater gross and operating profits.

Meanwhile, the company’s revenues of $338 million grew about 9% year-over-year and also topped consensus estimates of $314 million.
