Skanska Q3 profit, orders lag forecast

STOCKHOLM, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Skanska, the Nordic region's biggest builder, posted on Thursday a bigger-than-expected fall in quarterly earnings and order bookings and as the debt woes in Europe weighed.

Pretax profit for the group stood at 1.34 billion Swedish crowns ($200 million) in the third quarter against a mean forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts for 1.44 billion and a year-ago 1.66 billion.

Order bookings were below expectations at 26.5 billion crowns. ($1 = 6.7040 Swedish crowns)
