HELSINKI Oct 23 Finnish lift and escalator maker Kone raised its outlook for the full year after a stronger-than-expected rise in third-quarter operating profit thanks to sales growth in Asia.
Kone said on Tuesday it now expects 2012 operating profit, excluding one-time costs, of 780-820 million euros ($1.02-$1.07 billion) on stronger sales. It previously forecast operating profit of 760-820 million euros.
