US banking giant Goldman Sachs took markets by surprise April 13, 2009, announcing forecast-busting quarterly earnings and a massive five-billion-dollar share issue to help repay government aid. Goldman Sachs reported first-quarter net profit of 1.81 billion dollars with earnings per share of 3.39 dollars, sharply higher than 1.33 dollars per share forecast by most analysts. “Given the difficult market conditions, we are pleased with this quarter’s performance,” Blankfein said in the statement.
