LAS VEGAS (AP) — The world’s largest maker of construction and mining equipment is lowering expectations for its profit in 2015 because of slower-than-expected growth in the global economy.

Caterpillar Inc. had previously said it expected to earn $15 to $20 per share in 2015. It’s now saying it expects to earn $12 to $18 per share on revenue of $80 billion to $100 billion.

Caterpillar shares fell more than 2 percent in aftermarket trading following the announcement.

The company gave its guidance at a mining conference in Las Vegas.
