FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $2.922 billion for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016.  This represents a decrease of 2.1 percent from the prior-year period revenues due to the divestiture of the Respiratory Solutions business that was completed in October 2016.  On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, first quarter revenues grew 6.1 percent.

"We are very pleased with our strong start to fiscal year 2017," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chairman, CEO and President.  "Our results this quarter continue to demonstrate the breadth and diversity of the growth drivers within our portfolio.  Our first quarter performance, combined with our current outlook, gives us the confidence to raise our currency-neutral earnings guidance for fiscal year 2017."

First Quarter Fiscal 2017 Operating Results
As reported, diluted earnings per share for the first quarter were $2.58, compared with $1.06 in the prior-year period.  This represents an increase of 143.4 percent and is primarily due to a litigation reserve reversal following a favorable appellate antitrust ruling.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $2.33, compared with $1.96 in the prior-year period.  This represents an increase in adjusted diluted earnings per share of 18.9 percent, or 19.4 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

Segment Results
In the BD Medical segment, as reported, worldwide revenues for the quarter of $1.964 billion decreased 4.4 percent from the prior-year period due to the aforementioned divestiture.  On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, revenues increased 7.5 percent.  The segment's results reflect strong performance across the segment.  Performance in the Pharmaceutical Systems and Medication Management Solutions units was positively impacted, in part, by the timing of customer orders and capital placements, respectively, which occurred in the first fiscal quarter, earlier than initially anticipated.

In the BD Life Sciences segment, as reported, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $958 million, an increase of 2.7 percent over the prior-year period, or an increase of 3.2 percent on a currency-neutral basis.  The segment's revenue growth reflects strong performance in the Diagnostic Systems and Preanalytical Systems units.  Revenues in the Biosciences unit declined slightly due to a difficult comparison to the prior-year period.    

Geographic Results
As reported, first quarter revenues in the U.S. of $1.630 billion decreased 3.6 percent from the prior-year period due to the aforementioned divestiture.  On a comparable basis, U.S. revenues increased 5.5 percent.  Within the BD Medical segment, growth was driven by strong performance in the Medication Management Solutions and Diabetes Care units.  Growth was aided in part by the aforementioned timing of capital placements in the Medication Management Solutions unit, as well as the timing of customer orders in the Diabetes Care unit, which occurred in the first fiscal quarter, earlier than initially anticipated.  Growth in the BD Life Sciences segment was driven by solid growth in the Diagnostics Systems unit, and favorable timing of orders in Advanced Bioprocessing in the Biosciences unit. The segment's growth was negatively impacted by a decline in Preanalytical Systems revenues due to limited U.S. availability in one of our product lines.

As reported, revenues outside of the U.S. of $1.292 billion were about flat when compared with the prior-year period due to the aforementioned divestiture.  On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, revenues outside of the U.S. increased 6.8 percent.  International revenue growth reflects strong performance in the BD Medical segment and solid growth in the BD Life Sciences segment.  Within the BD Medical segment, growth was driven by capital installations in the Medication Management Solutions unit, and strength in the Pharmaceutical Systems unit, which was aided in part by the aforementioned timing of customer orders.  Growth in the BD Life Sciences segment reflects sales of safety-engineered products, and strength in Latin America and Asia Pacific in the Diagnostic Systems unit, including a favorable comparison to the prior-year period in China.  Revenues in the Biosciences unit declined due to a difficult comparison to the prior-year period.

Fiscal 2017 Outlook for Full Year  
As reported, the Company expects full fiscal year 2017 revenues to decrease 3.5 to 4.0 percent, primarily due to the aforementioned divestiture of the Respiratory Solutions business.  This is a reduction in previously issued guidance of a decrease of 3.0 to 3.5 percent due to the incrementally negative estimated impact from foreign currency.  The Company continues to estimate that revenues for the full fiscal year 2017 will increase 4.5 to 5.0 percent on a comparable, currency-neutral basis that excludes Respiratory Solutions and other divestitures that closed in fiscal year 2016.

As reported, the Company now expects full fiscal year diluted earnings per share to be between $7.90 and $8.00, which represents growth of approximately 76.0 to 78.0 percent.  On a currency-neutral basis, the Company is raising full fiscal year 2017 adjusted diluted earnings per share to $9.70 to $9.80, which represents growth of 13.0 to 14.0 percent including an estimated 1.5 percentage points of dilution related to the Respiratory Solutions divestiture.  This is an increase from previously issued guidance of $9.62 to $9.72, which represented approximately 12.0 to 13.0 percent growth. Including the incrementally negative estimated impact from foreign currency, the Company now expects adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $9.35 and $9.45, which represents growth of approximately 9.0 to 10.0 percent over fiscal 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $8.59.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share excludes, among other specified items, the non-cash amortization of intangible assets, and the reversal of a litigation reserve.
