Growth in adjusted EPS

The growth in adjusted EPS was due to revenue growth of 12.1% and operation margin expansion from 19% in 1Q15 to 20.1%. The EPS growth in 1Q16 was also positively impacted by share purchases in the last 12 months. The company purchased shares worth $27.4 million. Repurchasing shares reduces the shares outstanding.
