Boston Scientific Announces Results for First Quarter Ended March 31, 2011
Date:4/20/2011

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:

  • Achieved sales of $1.925 billion, at the high end of the Company's previous guidance range, and adjusted EPS of $0.22, exceeding previous guidance; reported GAAP earnings of $0.01 per share, lower than previous guidance due primarily to the impact of a $0.47 per share goodwill impairment charge.
  • Maintained leadership position in the drug-eluting stent market with a worldwide share of 36 percent and U.S. share of 46 percent (each excluding a negative one-share point impact of product transition reserves), and continued to grow PROMUS Element™ sales, with a European market share of more
