Emerson Electric Co. lowered its net sales outlook and raised its per-share earnings guidance for 2022 after posting increased profit and revenue in its third quarter.

The St. Louis-based global technology and engineering company said its updated outlook reflects its most-recent transactions, write-offs associated with the company's exit from Russia and continued macroeconomic and Covid-19-related challenges.

The company lowered its full-year net sales growth projection to between 7% and 8%, compared with a previous view between 8% and 10%. Underlying sales guidance is narrowed to between 9% to 10%, from between 9% and 11%.

The company increased its per-share earnings guidance to between $5.25 and $5.35, compared with a previous view of between $4.77 and $4.92. The company also raised its adjusted per-share earnings guidance to between $5.05 and $5.15, from between $4.95 and $5.10.
