FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today announced quarterly revenues of $3.231 billion, as reported, for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2016, an increase of 5.6 percent over the prior-year period revenues. On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, fourth quarter organic adjusted revenues grew 6.4 percent. For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, as reported, revenues of $12.483 billion increased 21.4 percent over the prior-year as reported. On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, full fiscal year organic adjusted revenues grew 4.3 percent.

"We are extremely proud of our accomplishments during our first fiscal year as the 'new' BD," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chairman, CEO and President. "Our solid revenue growth and continued margin expansion allow us to invest in innovation while delivering double-digit increases in earnings. We look forward to fiscal 2017 with confidence as we continue to focus on improving outcomes, expanding access to care, lowering costs and optimizing safety, which will ultimately enrich our purpose of advancing the world of health."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2016 Operating Results
As reported, diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter were $0.09, compared with $0.84 as reported in the prior-year period. This represents a decrease of 89.3 percent and is primarily due to charges related to the attainment of cost synergies. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $2.12, compared with $1.94 in the prior-year period. This represents an increase in adjusted diluted earnings per share of 9.3 percent, or 16.5 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, as reported, diluted earnings per share were $4.49, compared with $3.35 as reported in the prior-year period. This represents an increase of 34.0 percent. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $8.59, compared with $7.16 in the prior-year period. This represents an increase in adjusted diluted earnings per share of 20.0 percent, or 29.1 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

Segment Results
In the BD Medical segment, as reported, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $2.235 billion, an increase of 7.3 percent over the prior-year period revenues. As adjusted, BD Medical revenues of $2.237 billion grew 7.9 percent on a comparable, currency-neutral basis. The segment's revenue growth reflects strong performance in the Medication Management Solutions and Medication and Procedural Solutions units, and solid results in the Pharmaceutical Systems and Diabetes Care units. Strong performance in the Respiratory Solutions unit was aided, in part, by a favorable comparison to the prior year, as expected. 

For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2016, BD Medical revenues were $8.654 billion as reported, an increase of 34.0 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported. As adjusted, BD Medical revenues of $8.669 billion grew 4.7 percent on a comparable, currency-neutral basis.

In the BD Life Sciences segment, as reported, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $996 million, an increase of 2.1 percent over the prior-year period revenues, or an increase of 2.7 percent on a currency-neutral basis. The segment's revenue growth reflects solid performance in the Preanalytical Systems and Biosciences units. Within the Biosciences unit, strong growth in the research platform in the U.S. was partially offset by continued declines in Africa, as previously communicated. Growth in the Diagnostic Systems unit was impacted, in part, by the timing of installations of the BD Kiestra lab automation system that benefited the third fiscal quarter of fiscal 2016, in conjunction with a tough comparison to the prior-year period. 

For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2016, BD Life Sciences revenues were $3.829 billion as reported, an increase of 0.2 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported, and an increase of 3.4 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

Geographic Results
As reported, fourth quarter revenues in the U.S. were $1.748 billion, an increase of 7.1 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported. As adjusted, revenues in the U.S. of $1.751 billion increased 7.2 percent on a comparable basis. Within the BD Medical segment, growth was driven by strong performance across the Medication Management Solutions, Medication and Procedural Solutions, and Pharmaceutical Systems units. Growth in BD Life Sciences was driven by strong performance across the segment.

As reported, revenues outside of the U.S. were $1.483 billion, representing an increase of 3.9 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported, or an increase of 5.2 percent on a currency-neutral basis. International revenue growth reflects strong growth in the BD Medical segment. Within the BD Medical segment, results were driven by double-digit growth in China, strength in dispensing and infusion, and sales of safety-engineered products. Growth in the BD Medical segment was aided, in part, by the aforementioned favorable comparison to the prior year period in the Respiratory Solutions unit. BD Life Sciences segment revenues were about flat when compared with the prior-year period revenues. Results in the BD Life Sciences segment were impacted by the aforementioned tough comparison to the prior-year period related to the timing of installations of the BD Kiestra lab automation system, and continued declines in Africa within the Biosciences unit.

For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2016, U.S. revenues were $6.893 billion as reported, an increase of 36.0 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported. As adjusted, revenues in the U.S. of $6.907 billion grew 4.4 percent on a comparable basis. As reported, revenues outside of the U.S. were $5.590 billion, an increase of 7.2 percent over the prior-year period revenues as reported. On a comparable, currency-neutral basis, revenues outside the U.S. grew 4.2 percent.  

Fiscal 2017 Outlook for Full Year  
As reported, the Company expects full fiscal year 2017 revenues to decrease 3.0 to 3.5 percent, primarily due to the divestiture of the Respiratory Solutions business that was completed in October 2016. The Company estimates full fiscal year 2017 revenues will increase 4.5 to 5.0 percent on a comparable, currency-neutral basis that excludes Respiratory Solutions and other closed divestitures in fiscal years 2016 and 2017.

As reported, the Company expects full fiscal year 2017 diluted earnings per share to be between $7.23 and $7.33, which represents growth of 61.0 to 63.0 percent. The Company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $9.62 and $9.72 on a currency-neutral basis, which represents growth of 12.0 to 13.0 percent including an estimated 1.5 percentage points of dilution related to the Respiratory Solutions divestiture. Including the estimated unfavorable impact from foreign currency, the Company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $9.45 and $9.55, which represents growth of approximately 10.0 to 11.0 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures/Financial Tables
This news release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these and other non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures are included in the attached financial tables.  Within the attached financial tables presented, certain columns and rows may not add due to the use of rounded numbers. Percentages and earnings per share amounts presented are calculated from the underlying amounts.

All "comparable" basis revenue growth rates relating to fiscal year 2016 presented throughout this release include the results of CareFusion Corporation ("CareFusion") in the current and prior-year periods. Adjusted revenues for the current and prior-year periods for the Company and the Medical segment in the U.S. exclude the amortization of a write down of deferred revenue made in connection with our acquisition of CareFusion, which served to lower reported revenues for each period. Adjusted revenue growth rates presented on a comparable basis reflect the aforementioned adjustments and further exclude the impact of a distribution agreement change in the Respiratory Solutions unit. Adjusted revenue growth rates presented on an "organic" comparable basis reflect the aforementioned adjustments and are further adjusted for closed acquisitions and divestitures. Current and prior-year adjusted diluted earnings per share results exclude the impact of purchase accounting adjustments (including the non-cash amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets); and integration, restructuring and transaction costs. Prior-year adjusted diluted earnings per share results also excludes the impact of financing costs; a litigation-related charge and the dilutive impact of shares issued in the CareFusion acquisition prior to the consolidation of its operating results beginning on April 1, 2015. We also provide these measures on a currency-neutral basis after eliminating the effect of foreign currency translation, where applicable. Reconciliations of these amounts to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the tables at the end of this release.
