Finland's Stora Enso Q3 profit drops less than expected
HELSINKI, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Finnish forestry firm Stora Enso STERV.HE reported a smaller-than-expected fall in underlying July to September profits, citing a challenging business environment but minimal COVID-19 impact on its ability to serve customers and run operations.
The pulp, paper and packaging-board maker said quarterly adjusted operating profit fell to 330 million euros ($388.5 million) from 397 million a year earlier, beating the average forecast of 288.8 million in a Refinitiv analyst poll.
