FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDTRONIC REPORTS SECOND QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS
DUBLIN - November 21, 2017 - Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2018, which ended October 27, 2017.
The company reported second quarter worldwide revenue of $7.050 billion, a decrease of 4 percent as reported, with the decline driven by the company’s divestiture of its Patient Care, Deep Vein Thrombosis (Compression), and Nutritional Insufficiency businesses to Cardinal Health that occurred at the beginning of the quarter. Second quarter revenue increased 3 percent on a comparable, constant currency basis, which adjusts for the divestiture and a $35 million positive impact from foreign currency. Excluding the approximate $55 to $65 million impact of Hurricane Maria to the company’s revenue, which was split across the company’s Minimally Invasive Therapies Group and Restorative Therapies Group, second quarter revenue growth would have been 4 percent on a comparable, constant currency basis.
As reported, second quarter GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $2.017 billion and $1.48, respectively. As detailed in the financial schedules included through the link at the end of this release, second quarter non-GAAP net income and diluted EPS were $1.456 billion and $1.07, decreases of 7 percent and 4 percent, respectively. Adjusting for the divestiture, a positive 1 cent impact from foreign currency, and the approximate 3 cent impact from Hurricane Maria, second quarter non-GAAP diluted EPS increased approximately 5 percent.
Second quarter U.S. revenue of $3.734 billion represented 53 percent of company revenue and decreased 10 percent as reported, or was flat on a comparable basis. Non-U.S. developed market revenue of $2.241 billion represented 32 percent of company revenue and increased 1 percent as reported, or 5 percent on a comparable, constant currency basis. Emerging market revenue of $1.075 billion represented 15 percent of company revenue and increased 9 percent as reported, or 12 percent on a comparable, constant currency basis.
“Our second quarter financial results are very encouraging, when considered in the context of a quarter in which we faced three hurricanes and the California wildfires. Hurricane Maria, in particular, significantly affected our manufacturing operations in Puerto Rico,” said Omar Ishrak, Medtronic chairman and chief executive officer. “Against this backdrop, we delivered a sequential acceleration in our organic revenue growth, as expected.”
