BD Announces Results For 2011 First Fiscal Quarter
Date:2/7/2011

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Feb. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $1.842 billion for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2010, representing a decrease of 1.4 percent from the prior-year period.  On a foreign currency-neutral basis, revenue decreased 1.5 percent.  The revenue decline reflects an unfavorable comparison to the prior year of about 4 percentage points due to strong sales related to the pandemic flu and U.S. stimulus revenues in fiscal 2010.  

The Company also repurchased $837 million of its common stock during the quarter.   BD continues to plan aggregate share repurchases of $1.5 billion in fiscal 2011 and an additional $600 million in fiscal 2012.  

"We are pleased with our performance in the first fiscal quarter given the challenging environment," said Edward J. Ludwig, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "While revenue came in slightly below our expectations, our discipline around operational excellence enabled us to deliver earnings per share in line with our previous guidance.  We continued to return significant value to shareholders, while also investing in geographic expansion, new product platforms and operational excellence programs."  

First Quarter EarningsReported diluted earnings per share for the first quarter were $1.35, compared with $1.25 in the prior-year period, representing an 8.0 percent increase. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, diluted earnings per share for the first quarter increased by 4.8 percent.  

For the quarter, reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations included an approximate $0.07 favorable impact due to the timing of certain tax benefits.  These benefits, which were reflected in our previous full year
