WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - Xylem Inc. (XYL) reported third quarter 2020 net income of $37 million or $0.20 per share, down from $65 million or $0.36 per share in the prior year.

Third quarter revenue was $1.2 billion, down 6 percent on a reported basis and 7 percent organically, declining less than previously expected, primarily driven by the resilience of the wastewater utility business and healthy residential demand.

Xylem expects fourth quarter organic revenue declines in the range of 6 to 8 percent and adjusted operating margin in the range of 13.0 percent to 13.5 percent.
