McDonald's saw profits fall in the third quarter
as unfavourable exchange rates and slower growth at US restaurants
weighed on the world's largest fast-food chain.
Profits fell by 3.5 per cent to 1.46 billion dollars, the Oak Park, Illinois-based company said. Revenue stagnated at 7.2 billion dollars.
Market conditions are expected to remain difficult, chief executive Don Thompson said, after profits also fell in the second quarter.
