Executives said on a conference call with analysts that it is seeing reduced demand from some European automotive customers that are working through inventory, as well as risks to auto-sector demand caused by higher interest rates.

The maker of intelligent sensing and power services said Monday morning that it expects earnings of $1.10 to $1.24 a share for the fourth quarter, below the year-ago quarter’s $1.35 a share and analyst projections for $1.29 a share, according to FactSet.

Quarterly revenue is expected to be $1.95 billion to $2.05 billion, down from $2.1 billion last year and below analyst forecasts for $2.18 billion, according to FactSet.
