Google on Thursday posted a quarterly profit of $2.89 billion and said its board is backing a proposal for a stock split.
Google revenue in the quarter ended March 31 was $10.65 billion, a 24 percent jump from the same period last year.
The California company's nearly $3 billion in net income for the quarter was more than a $1 billion higher than the first quarter of last year, according to Google.
"Google had another great quarter," said company co-founder and chief executive Larry Page.
"We also saw tremendous momentum from the big bets we've made in products like Android, Chrome and YouTube."
