AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch supermarket operator Ahold Delhaize <AD.AS> on Wednesday reported second-quarter earnings largely in line with expectations, hurt by a strike at some of its U.S. stores in April.

Ahold said in a statement that underlying operating income fell to 594 million euros (547.38 million pounds) from 669 million euros in the same period a year earlier.

Analysts had estimated underlying operating income at 596 million euros in a company-compiled poll before earnings.
