  • Total revenue for the year increased 62.1% to $1.3 billion from $803.3 million in fiscal 2011.

  • Gross profit for the year increased 68.8% to $753.1 million, and as a percentage of total revenue was 57.8% for the year as compared to 55.5% in fiscal 2011.

Excluding these charges, income from operations for fiscal 2012 was $272.1 million, or 20.9% as a percentage of total revenue. This compares to operating income of $136.9 million in fiscal 2011, or 17.0% as a percentage of total revenue.
