RELX had a 2% increase in underlying revenue at its scientific, technical and medical unit for the first nine months, and said it expects the unit to post modest full-year growth. "RELX Says Nine-Month Underlying Revenue Grew on Year," at 0608 GMT, incorrectly stated that the revenue rise and the guidance were both for RELX as a whole in the first and last paragraphs.
