Industrial concern Honeywell has tightened its expectations for the whole of this year. The company now expects to be at the top of the previously announced forecasts for turnover, profit and free cash flow. Honeywell achieved sales growth of 5 percent on its own. The company mainly owed this to good results in the defense branch, the aircraft branch and the business unit that deals with oil and gas. The reported turnover, however, decreased by 15 percent as a result of the divestment of some parts and amounted to 9.2 billion dollars. Below the line, 2 billion dollars remained.
