Aecom profit falls

(Reuters) - Engineering and design company Aecom Technology Corp’s (ACM.N) third-quarter profit missed analysts’ estimates as demand for its management support services slowed.

Revenue at the management support services segment, which provides direct support services for the U.S. Army, fell 9 percent to $248.7 million. The segment accounted for 12 percent of total revenue of $2.10 billion.

The net income fell to $69.4 million, or 63 cents per share, from $73.8 million, or 62 cents per share, a year earlier.

    The number of outstanding shares fell 7 percent in the third quarter.

    Analysts on average had expected earnings of 64 cents per share on revenue of $2.09 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

    The company’s stock closed at $15.98 on Monday on the New York Stock Exchange.
