Medical equipment company Steris Plc (STE) reported lower profit in the fourth quarter, impacted by amortization of acquired intangibles and one-time acquisition expenses. Revenues rose 39 percent. The company also guided fiscal 2023 adjusted earnings per share above the Street view.

In the fourth quarter, the company posted net income of $52.3 million or $0.52 per share, lower than $87.4 million or $1.02 per share in the same period last year. The fourth quarter 2022 results were negatively impacted by amortization of acquired intangibles and inventory and property "step up" and one-time expenses associated with acquisitions totaling approximately $198.3 million.
