  • Earnings per share: 64 cents adjusted vs. 63 cents expected

Restaurant Brands reported first-quarter net income of $270 million, or 59 cents per share, down from $271 million, or 58 cents per share, a year earlier.

Excluding items, the company earned 64 cents per share, topping the 63 cents per share expected by analysts surveyed by Refinitiv.

Net sales rose 15.2% to $1.45 billion, beating expectations of $1.41 billion.
