    Air Liquide sees slower growth after U.S. Airgas deal

    France's Air Liquide warned of slower growth in sales and profitability on Wednesday despite a recent U.S. acquisition designed to offset poor economic prospects in Europe, pushing its shares more than 3 percent lower. The industrial gases company, which presented a new strategic plan to investors and analysts in London, said it was seeking revenue growth of 6-8 percent annually between now and 2020. Shares in Air Liquide, buoyed in the past by steady growth in net profit and dividends, were down 3.6 percent at 90.14 euros at 1050 GMT.
