Its interventional unit, which focuses on heart and medical imaging devices, reported sales of $135.6 million, above estimates of $132 million.

The Wayne, Pennsylvania-based company expects a 2024 profit of $13.55-$13.95 per share, on an adjusted basis. Analysts expect a profit of $13.84 per share for the period.

Teleflex expects revenue to grow between 3.6% and 4.6% in 2024.
