Walmart trims profit outlook after Flipkart purchase

(CNN Business)Walmart warned investors Tuesday that its acquisition of Flipkart will hurt its quarterly profit.

Walmart agreed to pay $16 billion for a 77% stake in the company earlier this year. Flipkart is India’s top online retailer and gives Walmart access to a market it has been trying to crack for years.
Walmart said the purchase will cut earnings by 25 cents a share, or about $740 million, in the current quarter.
