Tools and equipment manufacturer Snap-On (SNA) on Thursday reported 25% increase in third-quarter net income to $2.85 per share, despite net sales edging down 0.6% to $898.1 million. The earnings were helped by lower operating expenses during the quarter.

Excluding special items, the company earned $2.88 per share, higher than $2.85 per share expected by analysts.

Revenue for the quarter, which was impacted by headwinds from forex translations, was still higher than $928.69 million projected by analysts.

“While we experienced sales turbulence in our Repair Systems & Information Group this quarter, we believe the vehicle repair markets in which we operate remain robust and afford ongoing opportunity,” Nick Pinchuk said.

Sales in the Snap-On Tools group slipped 1% during the quarter to $389.8 million, while that at the Commercial & Industrial Group increased 5% to $330.2 million. Meanwhile, Repair Systems & Information Group reported a sale decline of  5.7%.
