FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $2.202 billion for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2014, representing an increase of 4.8 percent from the prior-year period, or 4.6 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2014, BD reported revenues of $8.446 billion, representing an increase of 4.9 percent over the prior-year period, or 5.2 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.

"Our strong fourth quarter and fiscal year 2014 results mark the conclusion of another successful year for the Company," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chairman, CEO and President. "Organic revenue growth continued to accelerate and we delivered a higher quality of earnings while maintaining our ongoing investments to support our innovation strategy. We have built a strong foundation for growth and look forward to fiscal year 2015 with confidence."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2014 Discussion
Reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter were $1.53, compared with $0.46 in the prior-year period. Current quarter results included pre-tax charges of $46 million, or $0.15 per share, which primarily consisted of employee termination costs associated with a workforce reduction. The results in the prior-year's period included pre-tax charges of $347 million, or $1.08 per share, which primarily consisted of a charge from the RTI verdict. Excluding the impact of these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $1.68 compared with $1.54 in the prior-year period. This represents an increase of 9.1 percent, or 13.0 percent on a currency-neutral basis. The effect of these charges on the current and prior-year results are detailed in the accompanying reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures.

For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2014, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $5.99, compared with $4.67 in the prior-year period. Excluding the specified fourth quarter charges in the current and prior year discussed above, as well as other items detailed in the accompanying reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures from previous quarters of the current and prior year, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $6.25 compared with $5.81 in the prior-year period. This represents growth of 7.6 percent, or 11.4 percent on a currency-neutral basis. Excluding the first quarter incremental impact of the medical device excise tax, which went into effect in January 2013 under the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $6.29, representing growth of 8.3 percent, or 12.0 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

Beginning in fiscal year 2015, we will exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets from our adjusted diluted earnings per share non-GAAP measure. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for 2014 would have been $6.50 if amortization of acquisition-related intangibles had been excluded.

Segment Results
In the BD Medical segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $1.193 billion, representing an increase of 6.5 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 6.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The segment's revenue growth reflects strong sales in the Diabetes Care and Pharmaceutical Systems units. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2014, BD Medical revenues increased 6.2 percent, or 6.3 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

In the BD Diagnostics segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $708 million, representing an increase of 4.2 percent on both a reported and currency-neutral basis as compared with the prior-year period. The segment's growth was driven by solid sales in the Preanalytical Systems and Diagnostic Systems units. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2014, BD Diagnostics revenues increased 2.5 percent, or 3.3 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

In the BD Biosciences segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $301 million, which were about flat on both a reported and currency-neutral basis compared with the prior-year period, as expected. The segment's results were impacted by an unfavorable comparison resulting from prior-year order timing in Western Europe. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2014, BD Biosciences revenues increased 5.2 percent, or 5.5 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

Geographic Results
Fourth quarter revenues in the U.S. of $871 million represent an increase of 2.3 percent over the prior-year period. Revenues outside of the U.S. were $1.331 billion, representing an increase of 6.6 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 6.2 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. International revenues reflected continued strength in emerging markets and sales of safety-engineered products.

For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2014, revenues in the U.S. were $3.417 billion, representing an increase of 1.9 percent compared with the prior-year period. Revenues outside of the U.S. were $5.029 billion, representing an increase of 7.0 percent when compared with the prior-year period, or 7.6 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.

Fiscal 2015 Outlook for Full Year 
The Company estimates that revenues for the full fiscal year 2015 will increase 4.5 to 5.0 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. On a reported basis, revenues are expected to increase 2.0 to 2.5 percent due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency. The Company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, to be between $6.76 and $6.83 for the full fiscal year 2015, which represents currency-neutral growth of 8.0 to 9.0 percent over 2014 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $6.50. Including the estimated unfavorable impact of foreign-currency, adjusted diluted earnings per share are expected to grow between 4.0 to 5.0 percent. The Company expects full fiscal year reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be between $6.47 to $6.54.

Due to the announced agreement to acquire CareFusion Corporation, beginning in fiscal year 2015, the Company's adjusted diluted earnings per share measure will exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. The Company's share repurchase program has been suspended in connection with the specified agreement, which has an estimated unfavorable impact of $0.07 to $0.09 to fiscal year 2015 adjusted diluted earnings per share.
