financial measures by relying upon its GAAP results to gain a complete

critical one, of the Company's performance.

measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure in the accompanying

schedules, and Boston Scientific encourages investors to review these

reconciliations.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

income per share, and regional and divisional revenue growth rates that

exclude the impact of foreign exchange in addition to the related GAAP
