On average, analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expect the company to report earnings of $4.06 per share on revenue growth of 7.5 percent to $4.88 billion for the year. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

Total revenue for the quarter increased 11 percent to $1.14 billion from $1.03 billion in the same quarter last year.
