Wesco reported that end-market activity was slower than expected during the quarter, slowing organic sales growth. The shortfall resulted primarily from an unanticipated decline in utility expenditures for distribution materials, as well as lower commercial construction activity.
&nbsp ;
For the first six months, sales were $2.96 billion, a 14.1% increase from last year. Profit year-to-date was $105.2 million, versus $99.6 million last year.
