NORTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's Diebold Inc., which makes bank ATMs and voting machines, reported a 65 percent jump in third-quarter earnings.
The company based in North Canton said Thursday it posted a profit of $46.5 million, helped by cost-cutting and an early close to a big sale in China.
Diebold earned 70 cents per share, including restructuring charges. Wall Street analysts were looking for 64 cents, though their estimates typically do not include one-time charges.
In September, Diebold filed its annual report for 2007 and its quarterly reports going back to the second quarter of last year. The filings were delayed over regulatory concerns about how Diebold was reporting revenue.
