November 8 -- Adecco SA, the world’s largest provider of temporary workers, reported third-quarter sales in line with analyst estimates as growth in Italy offset a decline in U.S. Overall, sales rose 2 percent to 5.8 billion euros ($6.4 billion) from a year earlier, the Glattbrugg, Switzerland-based company said in a statement Tuesday. That was comparable to the average estimate of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. Net income was 173 million euros compared with a loss of 513 million euros last year when the company reported a write down.
