Net income fell to $2.61 billion, or 84 cents a share, from $2.71 billion, or 82 cents, a year earlier, according to the press release.

Sales fell 8 percent to $18.4 billion for the quarter ended March 31. They would have been up 1 percent without the impact of currency translations. Lower shipments also have blunted sales, according to the article.
