Our Q1 net income and EPS, both GAAP and non-GAAP, exceeded our expectations, while revenue was in line with our expectations. On a consolidated basis, total revenue was $3.5 billion, up 12.6% compared to $3.1 billion in the same quarter of the prior year. Adjusting for FX of $19 million, revenue in constant currency was 12% higher compared to the prior quarter.

Technology Solutions segment revenues were $3 billion, representing an increase of 9.4% compared to the prior-year quarter.
