Rockwell Collins posts lower quarterly profit


Oct 26 (Reuters) - Rockwell Collins Inc posted a lower quarterly profit on Friday, as weaker government sales overshadowed stronger commercial aerospace sales.

Net income was $152 million, or $1.06 a share, for the fiscal fourth quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with $175 million, or $1.13 a share, a year before, the avionics supplier said.

Sales fell 2 percent to just under $1.3 billion.
