By PR Newswire,  February 04, 2014, 06:00:00 AM EDT


-- Raises the bottom end of full fiscal year 2014 revenue and earnings ranges for guidance.

-- Announces revenues of approximately $2.0 billion, an increase of 6.0 percent, or 6.7 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.

-- Reports diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.37, an increase of 1.5 percent, or 8.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE:BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $2.0 billion for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013, representing an increase of 6.0 percent from the prior-year period, or 6.7 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. Revenue growth was aided, in part, by favorable timing of orders in the BD Medical and BD Diagnostics segments.

"Fiscal year 2014 is off to a strong start," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chairman, CEO and President. "Our revenue and earnings growth exceeded our expectations and we have continuing confidence that we have built a solid foundation for future growth. Accordingly, we are raising the bottom end of our previous revenue and earnings ranges for our full fiscal year guidance."

First Quarter Earnings

Reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the first quarter were $1.37 compared with $1.35 in the prior-year period, representing a 1.5 percent increase. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the first quarter increased by 8.1 percent. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the medical device excise tax, which went into effect in January 2013 under the U.S. healthcare reform law, were $1.42, or an increase of 11.9 percent.

Segment Results

In the BD Medical segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $1.06 billion, representing an increase of 8.2 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 8.6 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The segment's revenue growth reflects strong sales in the Medical Surgical Systems and Diabetes Care units and solid sales in the Pharmaceutical Systems unit. Both the Medical Surgical and Pharmaceutical Systems units also benefitted from favorable timing of orders.

In the BD Diagnostics segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $672 million, representing an increase of 3.1 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 4.2 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The segment's growth was driven by international expansion in both the Preanalytical Systems and Diagnostic Systems business units. Diagnostic systems growth was also aided, in part, from a timing of flu orders.

In the BD Biosciences segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $279 million, representing an increase of 5.4 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 5.7 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The segment's growth was driven by continued strength in emerging markets, clinical reagents sales and solid instrument placements in both the U.S. and Western Europe.

Geographic Results

First quarter revenues in the U.S. of $849 million represent an increase of 2.3 percent over the prior-year period. Revenues outside of the U.S. were $1.17 billion, representing an increase of 8.9 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 10.0 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. International revenues reflected continued strength in emerging markets and sales of safety-engineered products in addition to solid growth in Western Europe.

Fiscal 2014 Outlook for Full Year

The Company estimates that reported and currency-neutral revenues for the full fiscal year 2014 will increase 4.5 to 5.0 percent. The Company expects reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full fiscal year 2014 to be between $6.19 and $6.22, which represents growth of 6.5 to 7.0 percent over 2013 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.81.  On a foreign currency-neutral basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share are expected to grow about 9.0 to 9.5 percent, or 9.5 to 10.0 percent excluding the incremental impact of the medical device tax.  The Company plans to repurchase, subject to market conditions, about $450 million of its common stock in fiscal year 2014.
