Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc cut its full-year sales forecast after a global cyberattack last month disrupted manufacturing and distribution, in the first detailed indication of the financial toll by a major company.

The maker of Air Wick fresheners and Dettol cleaners expects sales to rise about 2 percent on a like-for-like basis, Reckitt Benckiser said in a statement Thursday. Previously it forecast 3 percent growth.
