expects to record a fourth-quarter charge for recent organizational and operational changes, but projected that profits will exceed earlier estimates.

Structural Dynamics expects to exceed its earlier fourth-quarter forecast of 5 cents a share before the charge -- the number Wall Street is projecting -- and revenue of $115 million.
