    to his delight

    Hi teachers!
    Could you explain me meaning of the phrase 'to his delight' in below sentence 'To his delight, he found that his costs actually fell and he could charge even lower prices'
    Does it mean 'he was glad'
    Thanks so much

    Re: to his delight

    Hi,

    More than just glad, he was very happy to see his costs decreasing.
