F-Secure profit falls on weak PC sales

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finnish software maker F-Secure reported a 2 percent fall in quarterly operating profit as slower sales of personal computers hurt its anti-virus software business.

F-Secure's third-quarter earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) fell to 8.4 million euros (7.2 million pounds) from 8.6 million a year earlier.

Quarterly revenue fell to 38.3 million euros from 39.1 million, but the company reiterated its forecast for a 5 percent rise in full-year sales as it shifts its focus from personal computers to "cloud" computing.
