Operating Income for the first quarter rose 2.0%, and the margin contracted 150 basis points,mainly due to the higher cost of sales and a higher inflationary environment globally, most notably in North America , coupled with a lower non-cash benefit of US$73 million related to the adjustment to the MEPPs liability to reflect current interest rate levels, compared to the US$109 million non-cash benefit registered in the first quarter of 2021. This was partially offset by the strong sales performance and efficiencies in selling and administrative expenses.Excluding the MEPPs effect for both periods, operating income increased 13% and the margin contracted 30 basis points, to 8%.
