Did any company measure profits after implementing SAFe? How can we know that total costs of implementing SAFe are less than profits?

    Implementing SAFe is always profitable for the SAFe consultants. Caveat emptor.

I think you'll find it difficult to explicitly attribute a rise in profit to an implementation of SAFe. Rather you should look at why SAFe is being implemented in the first place.

  • Improve cross-team dependency management
  • Improve forward planning
  • Improve estimation accuracy for large projects

Once you know the why you can then design metrics that you can capture before/after, which will tell you whether SAFe had a measurable impact on your development process.
