(Reuters) – Swiss elevator and escalator manufacturer Schindler on Friday cut its revenue guidance for the full year, citing China market contraction and COVID-related lockdowns.
The company now expects 2022 revenue to move by -2% to +2%, after previously guiding for growth in the range of 1% to 6%.
It expects 2022 net profit to reach 620-660 million Swiss francs ($640-$682 million), below the 2021 figure of 881 million francs.
