Gross profit totaled $1.18 billion, a year-over-year increase of 38.9%.

First quarter gross margin was 50 basis points above the mid-point of the company’s guidance mainly due to better product mix. Operating income increased by 90.3% to $440 million, compared to $231 million in the year-ago quarter.
