NATICK, Mass., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, as well as net sales and earnings per share (EPS) guidance for the second quarter and updated guidance for the full year 2011. The Company exceeded its adjusted EPS guidance range for the quarter and raised adjusted EPS guidance for the full year 2011. First quarter GAAP results included a previously anticipated gain recognized on the sale of the Neurovascular business of $759 million pre-tax ($530 million after-tax), net of separation costs. In addition, primarily due to a reduction in the estimated size of the U.S. Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) market, which led to lower projected U.S. CRM results compared to prior forecasts, the Company also recorded a $723 million (pre- and after-tax) estimated goodwill impairment charge associated with its U.S. CRM business unit during the quarter. As a result, GAAP EPS for the first quarter of 2011 was below previous guidance, and the Company's updated full year GAAP EPS guidance reflects this charge. The amount of the goodwill impairment charge is subject to finalization and is estimated to range between $650 million and $800 million.
First quarter highlights:
“Despite an increasingly challenging U.S. CRM market and the resulting goodwill implications, we had several notable accomplishments during the quarter that illustrate progress toward the achievement of strategic milestones,” said Ray Elliott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boston Scientific. “Our sales were at the high end of our projected range, we benefited from our cost-reduction initiatives, and we continue to aspire to double-digit EPS growth in the near term. Our increased financial flexibility has enabled us to reduce debt, expand our Emerging Markets footprint and complete six acquisitions in the past six months.”
Net sales for the first quarter of 2011 were $1.925 billion, as compared to net sales of $1.960 billion for the first quarter of 2010, a decrease of 2 percent. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and sales from divested businesses, net sales decreased 1 percent as compared to the prior period.
Worldwide CRM net sales for the first quarter - on a reported basis - were as follows:(in millions)U.S.InternationalWorldwideQ1 2011Q1 2010Q1 2011Q1 2010Q1 2011Q1 2010Defibrillator systems$

444On a GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $20 million, or $0.01 per share. These results included a goodwill impairment charge, acquisition- and divestiture-related net credits, restructuring-related charges, discrete tax items and amortization expense, for total net charges of $316 million, or $0.21 per share, which consisted of:
Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2011, excluding these net charges, was $336 million, or $0.22 per share.
On a GAAP basis, net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $1.589 billion, or $1.05 per share, and was driven primarily by a goodwill impairment charge related to the Company's U.S. CRM business unit. Reported results included goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges; acquisition-, divestiture-, and restructuring-related net charges and amortization expense (after-tax) of $1.840 billion, or $1.21 per share. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2010, excluding these net charges, was $251 million, or $0.16 per share.
Guidance for Second Quarter and Full Year 2011The Company estimates net sales for the second quarter of 2011 in a range of $1.92 to $2.0 billion. Compared to net sales for the second quarter of 2010, this range assumes a $46 million negative impact from the divestiture of the Neurovascular business. The Company estimates earnings on a GAAP basis in a range of $0.05 to $0.08 per share. Adjusted earnings, excluding acquisition-, divestiture- and restructuring-related net charges and amortization expense, are estimated in a range of $0.12 to $0.15 per share. Recent acquisitions are expected to dilute second quarter 2011 adjusted earnings by approximately $0.01 per share as compared to the prior year, and the divestiture of the Neurovascular business is expected to dilute second quarter 2011 adjusted earnings by $0.01 per share.
The Company now estimates net sales for the full year 2011 in a range of $7.6 to $7.9 billion. Compared to full year 2010 net sales, this range now assumes a $212 million negative impact from the divestiture of the Neurovascular business. Recent acquisitions are not expected to contribute to 2011 sales. The Company now estimates earnings on a GAAP basis in a range of $0.15 to $0.27 per share. Adjusted earnings, excluding goodwill impairment charges; acquisition-, divestiture-, and restructuring-related net credits; discrete tax items; and amortization expense, are being raised by $0.08 from previous guidance of $0.50 to $0.60 per share to an estimated range of $0.58 to $0.68 per share. Recent acquisitions are now expected to dilute 2011 adjusted earnings by approximately $0.03 to $0.04 per share as compared to the prior year, and the divestiture of the Neurovascular business is expected to dilute 2011 adjusted earnings by approximately $0.05 per share.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresTo supplement Boston Scientific's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share that exclude certain amounts, and regional and divisional revenue growth rates that exclude the impact of foreign exchange. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
The GAAP measure most directly comparable to adjusted net income is GAAP net income and the GAAP measure most directly comparable to adjusted net income per share is GAAP net income per share. To calculate regional and divisional revenue growth rates that exclude the impact of foreign exchange, the Company converts actual current-period net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign exchange rates. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to this non-GAAP measure is growth rate percentages using net sales on a GAAP basis. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measure are included in the accompanying schedules.
Management uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in the Company's business, to assess its performance relative to its competitors, and to establish operational goals and forecasts that are used in allocating resources. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to further its understanding of the performance of the Company's operating segments. The adjustments excluded from the Company's non-GAAP financial measures are consistent with those excluded from its reportable segments' measure of profit or loss. These adjustments are excluded from the segment measures that are reported to the Company's chief operating decision maker and are used to make operating decisions and assess performance.
The Company believes that presenting adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and regional and divisional revenue growth rates that exclude the impact of foreign exchange in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures provides investors greater transparency to the information used by Boston Scientific management for its financial and operational decision-making and allows investors to see Boston Scientific's results “through the eyes” of management. The Company further believes that providing this information better enables Boston Scientific's investors to understand the Company's operating performance and to evaluate the methodology used by management to evaluate and measure such performance.
The following is an explanation of each of the adjustments that management excluded as part of these non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 and for the forecasted three month period ending June 30, 2011 and full year ending December 31, 2011, as well as reasons for excluding each of these individual items:
Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share
Regional and Divisional Revenue Growth Rates Excluding the Impact of Foreign Exchange
Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share and regional and divisional revenue growth rates that exclude the impact of foreign exchange are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and should not be considered in isolation from or as a replacement for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Further, other companies may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than Boston Scientific does, which may limit the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
