|MEDTRONIC PLC filed this Form 8-K on 11/21/2017|
The Diabetes Group includes the Intensive Insulin Management (IIM), Diabetes Service & Solutions (DSS), and Non-Intensive Diabetes Therapies (NDT) divisions. Diabetes Group worldwide second quarter revenue of $462 million was flat, or decreased 2 percent on a constant currency basis. The group is experiencing strong global demand for its new sensor-augmented insulin pump systems, and similar to the first quarter, growth was tempered as demand outpaced supply. The group’s ability to meet increasing patient demand has improved, as evidenced by the improved sequential revenue growth. In addition, the Diabetes Group’s capacity expansion plans for the second half of fiscal year 2018 are on track.
Medtronic today reiterated its revenue and non-GAAP EPS guidance. The company’s guidance is given on a comparable, constant currency basis, which accounts for the divestiture of certain businesses from its prior period Patient Monitoring & Recovery division by removing the financial impact of these businesses from the second, third, and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2017, as well as removing the impact of foreign currency.
In fiscal year 2018, the company continues to expect comparable, constant currency revenue growth to be in the range of 4 to 5 percent. While the impact of foreign currency remains fluid, if current exchange rates remain similar for the remainder of the fiscal year, the company’s revenue would be positively affected by approximately $275 million to $375 million for the fiscal year, including an approximate $155 to $175 million positive impact in the third fiscal quarter.
In fiscal year 2018, the company continues to expect diluted non-GAAP EPS growth to be in the range of 9 to 10 percent on a comparable, constant currency basis from the prior year comparable EPS of $4.37. Assuming current exchange rates remain similar for the rest of the year, the foreign exchange impact on the company’s non-GAAP EPS would be approximately negative 2 cents for the fiscal year, including an approximate positive 1 cent impact in the third fiscal quarter.
“We are seeing increased revenue momentum from several important new product launches, which we expect to continue into the second half of the fiscal year,” said Ishrak. “The combination of our growth momentum, business and geographic diversification, as well as our scale in markets around the world contribute to our goal of delivering increasingly consistent and dependable results for our shareholders.”
