Alliant TechSystems posts lower quarterly profit

Nov 1 (Reuters) - Alliant TechSystems Inc, a supplier of ammunition and booster rockets, reported a lower quarterly profit on Thursday as sales fell in two large divisions.

Net income came to about $65 million, or $2.00 a share, in the fiscal second quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with about $80 million, or $2.43 a share, a year earlier, the company said on Thursday.
