Excluding items, the company earned an adjusted 83 cents per share for the recent quarter. Analysts expected 76 cents per share.

Revenue rose 10 percent to $7.44 billion from $6.74 billion. Analysts expected $7.11 billion in revenue.

For the full year, the company says it now expects to post an earnings-per-share percentage increase in the "mid-teens."
