(or: the third quarter profit.) Who of you is familiar with financial terms? What does it mean please.
I am not familiar with financial terms. Nevertheless I think I catch the expression. a quarter (here: of a year) = 3 months the third quarter = July, August, September. In accounting, they might call 3rd quarter profit, third quarter gain: the positive difference between incomes and charges during that quarter. Third quarter "bottom line" is the result whatever it be, profit or loss, whatever the difference I mentioned above be, positive or negative. See you, Gwendo.
The floor is open to any possible more informed GGuser!!
