Profits hit by atrocity


Digital marketing solutions company DoubleClick has lowered its earnings forecast - blaming it on the World Trade Centre attacks.

It now expects third quarter revenues to be between USD 87-90 million, down from USD 96-102 million.

Finance chief Bruce Dalziel said: 'The tragic events of September 11 have led to softness in both online advertising and software sales. This has diminished the outlook for revenues in our media business, and to some extent in our technology business as well.'

The New York-based company will release third quarter results on October 11.
