Akamai cuts higher end of forecast for quarterly revenue, profit

(Reuters) - Akamai Technologies Inc (AKAM.O) on Tuesday cut the upper end of its forecast for second-quarter adjusted profit and revenue, citing a stronger dollar.

Shares of the company were down 2.8 percent at $75.50 in premarket trading on the Nasdaq.

Akamai said it expects to face a headwind of $3 million and $0.01 per share for second-quarter revenue and earnings respectively.
