BERLIN (Reuters) -U.S.-German medical device maker Siemens Healthineers reported a dip in its third-quarter earnings on Wednesday, as revenue from rapid COVID-19 antigen tests dropped and COVID-19 lockdowns in China took their toll on business.

Net income fell 8% year on year to 364 million euros ($370 million), the company said. Analysts had expected a rise to 415 million euros, according to a consensus published on Healthineers' website.

Adjusted earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) dropped 19% to 765 million euros on revenues of 5.19 billion euros, compared to 5 billion euros a year ago.

The company stuck with its outlook for the 2022 financial year as supply-chain headwinds and COVID-19 lock-downs pushed some sales into next quarters.

It said it expected comparable revenue growth of between 5.5% and 7.5% and adjusted basic earnings per share of between 2.25 euros and 2.35 euros.

"Supply-chain headwinds and pandemic-related lockdowns pushed out some sales into the next quarters, and cost increases burdened profits," Chief Executive Bernd Montag said.
