The operating profit advanced 25 percent to USD 8.31 billion, though the margin slid to 25 percent from 28 percent. The net profit jumped to USD 9.19 billion from 6.73 billion, with diluted earnings per share going to USD 13.06 from 9.57. The effective tax rate was lower at 9 percent from 16 percent
