McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) reported a better-than-expected rise in quarterly sales at its restaurants on Monday, helped by strong international sales, especially in the UK and Germany, sending its shares up 3.6 percent, according to Reuters.

Global sales at stores open at least 13 months rose 5.5 percent, easily topping the average analyst estimate of 3.94 percent, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

 Same-store sales for what it calls its international lead markets – comprising Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom – rose 7.8 percent, surging past analysts’ expectation of a 5.30 percent gain.
Sales at McDonald’s U.S. restaurants also topped estimates due to higher menu prices and an increase in customer visits.

Excluding items, the company earned $1.79 per share, beating the estimate of $1.67.

Net income rose to $1.38 billion, or $1.72 per share, from $1.21 billion, or $1.47 per share, a year earlier.

Revenue fell 9 percent to $5.14 billion, but edged past the estimate of $4.98 billion.
