This boosted per share earnings by 3 cents year-on-year to 26 cents, which was ahead of forecasts of around the 21 cents mark.

He added: “In addition, we were able to accelerate the process of improving efficiencies and reducing relative operating expense levels faster than expected. In combination, this led to increased earnings per share, exceeding the high end of our guidance range.”
