Action camera manufacturer, GoPro Inc. (NYSE:GPRO) saw its shares rise by 13% in premarket trade after it surprised Wall Street with a better-than-expected profit guidance.

GoPro said that revenue is expected to be at the "high end" of the previously provided guidance range of US$290mln to US$310mln, against market consensus for US$304mln.
