(Reuters) – Dow Inc DOW.N reported a 44.6% drop in third-quarter profit on Thursday due to lower demand for its chemicals from consumer durables and construction industries reeling under a COVID-19-induced economic slowdown.
Net operating profit, which excludes certain items, fell to $376 million, or 50 cents per share, in the three months ended Sept. 30, from $679 million, or 91 cents per share, a year earlier.
