Net sales information is as follows (in millions):
  • Sales increased 17% in Q1 2019 compared to the comparable prior year period. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates impacted net sales by $(1.1) billion for Q1 2019. For a discussion of the effect on sales growth of foreign exchange rates, see “Effect of Foreign Exchange Rates” below.
