At $2.90 billion, first-quarter net sales were up 9.5% year-over-year. Gross profit benefited from higher organic net sales and supply chain realized productivity which more than offset the negative impacts of cost of goods sold inflation of 15%, unfavorable operating leverage, and continued elevated supply chain operating costs.

First-quarter net income, adjusted for special items, moved up to $0.57 per share from $0.50 per share in the same period of last year and topped expectations. On an unadjusted basis, meanwhile, the company reported a net loss of $77.5 million or $0.16 per share, compared to a profit of $235.4 million or $0.49 per share in the prior-year quarter.
