SAN DIEGO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CareFusion Corporation (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical device company created on Sep. 1, 2009 through the spinoff of Cardinal Health's clinical and medical products businesses, today said it will release its first quarter results and host a conference call on Thurs., Nov. 5, 2009 at 8:30 a.m. EST, earlier than the previously announced earnings date.
The company is changing the date of its earnings announcement to coincide with Cardinal Health's first quarter earnings release. CareFusion was part of Cardinal Health for two months of the quarter, and Cardinal Health will present CareFusion results as part of its first quarter discontinued operations. By moving up the earnings release date, the company is seeking to avoid any potential confusion as a result of Cardinal Health's partial presentation of CareFusion results in its discontinued operations, which will differ from the company's reported results.
The CareFusion earnings webcast and conference call will now take place on Nov. 5, 2009 at 8:30 a.m. EST to discuss results for its first quarter of fiscal 2010, ended on Sep. 30, 2009. To access the call and corresponding slide presentation, visit www.carefusion.com on the Investor Relations section under "Calendar of Events," or dial 800-510-9836 or 617-614-3670, passcode 54900921. Log on at least 15 minutes before the call begins to register and download or install any necessary audio software.
A replay of the conference call will be available at 11 a.m. EST on Nov. 5, 2009 through 11:59 p.m. EST on Nov. 7, 2009 and can be accessed by dialing 888-286-8010 or 617-801-6888, passcode 54800850.
