(Reuters) - 3M Co (NYSE: MMM), the maker of Scotch tape and Post-it notes, reported a 2.55 percent increase in quarterly profit, partly helped by lower costs, as sales continued to stagnate.
Net income attributable to the company rose to $1.33 billion, or $2.15 per share, in the third quarter ended Sept. 30, from $1.30 billion, or $2.05 per share, a year earlier.
3M's operating expenses fell about 1 percent to about $5.81 billion.
Net sales were flat at $7.71 billion.
