The Bellevue, Wash., company says it earned 25 cents per share during the most-recent quarter if the one-time items are excluded.
Revenue climbed 24 percent to $1.01 billion, mostly on greater international sales.
FactSet says analysts expected adjusted net income of 23 cents per share and $967.5 million in revenue.
The company's shares rose 2.5 percent in aftermarket trading following the release of the results.
