MOSCOW, April 24 (Reuters) - Russia's biggest search engine Yandex reported on Thursday a 19 percent increase in first-quarter net income to 2.7 billion roubles ($75.62 million) as its sales grew ahead of guidance.

Revenue increased 36 percent to 10.9 billion roubles, the company said in a statement.
