Adtran says fourth-quarter sales to fall from third quarter

Oct 3 (Reuters) - Network gear maker Adtran Inc said typical seasonality and a weak spending environment may lead to a decrease in fourth-quarter revenue.

The company said it expects revenue for the period to fall by a "teens" percentage point from the third quarter.

Adtran shares were down 6 percent at $16.10 on the Nasdaq on Wednesday.
