Revenues reached nearly $40 billion, a 13 percent year-over-year increase, and earnings per share grew more than 20 percent year over year. With our positive momentum, moderate economic growth and diminishing cost head winds, we are well-positioned to achieve stronger earnings in 2012. Download the full letter.
