Weight Watchers International Inc. rose 2.4 percent in after-hours trading on Tuesday, after the company said it used a new loan to pay off debt in a refinancing effort. That will add to this year’s expenses, the company said, but the anticipated benefits from cost-reduction efforts are expected to offset higher interest expenses, Dow Jones reported. The shares rose again in Wednesday’s regular trading.
