   Wednesday, October 26, 2016 6:30:00 AM ET

Boston Scientific Corporation (BSX ) generated sales of $2.105 billion during the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, compared to the company’s guidance range for the quarter of $2.035 to $2.085 billion. This represents growth of 11 percent on a reported basis and 10 percent on an operational basis (calculated on a constant currency basis), all compared to the prior year period. The company reported GAAP earnings of $228 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to a loss of $(0.15) a year ago, and achieved adjusted earnings per share of $0.27 for the period, compared to $0.24 a year ago.

"Our differentiated products and services continue to make a meaningful impact for our customers and the patients they treat, as shown by very strong revenue growth in the third quarter and year to date," said Mike Mahoney, chairman and chief executive officer, Boston Scientific. "Our global team is delivering excellent performance across our various business units and geographies."

Third quarter financial results and recent developments:

-- Reported third quarter sales of $2.105 billion, representing an increase of 11 percent on a reported basis and 10 percent on an operational basis, all compared to the prior year period.

-- Grew organic revenue 9 percent in the third quarter over the prior year period. Organic revenue growth excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and sales from the acquisition of the American Medical Systems (AMS) male urology portfolio for the month of July.

-- Reported GAAP earnings of $0.17 per share compared to the company’s guidance range of $0.13 to $0.15 per share. Achieved adjusted earnings per share of $0.27 compared to the guidance range of $0.25 to $0.27 per share.

-- Achieved third quarter revenue growth in all segments, all compared to the prior year period:

-- MedSurg: 15 percent (14 percent operational and 10 percent organic)

-- Cardiovascular: 13 percent (12 percent operational and organic)

-- Rhythm Management: 4 percent (3 percent operational and organic)

-- Delivered strong regional revenue growth, all compared to the prior year period:

-- U.S.: 11 percent (11 percent operational and 9 percent organic)

-- Europe: 6 percent (7 percent operational and 5 percent organic)

-- AMEA (Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa): 20 percent (12 percent operational and organic)

-- Emerging markets:* 10 percent (19 percent operational and organic)

-- Entered into a definitive agreement and commenced a cash tender offer to acquire EndoChoice Holdings, Inc. (GI ), which offers physicians a broad portfolio of products to treat gastrointestinal conditions, for approximately $210 million.

-- Launched the Resolution 360(TM) Hemoclip, designed to offer gastroenterologists greater control when performing hemostatic clipping, used in endoscopic procedures of the upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract to stop and help prevent bleeding that occurs with conditions including peptic ulcers, polyps removed during a colonoscopy and diverticulosis of the colon.

-- Received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the EMBLEM(TM) MRI Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator (S-ICD) System, as well as magnetic resonance (MR) conditional labeling for all previously implanted EMBLEM S-ICD Systems. United Healthcare, the largest private healthcare insurer in the U.S., also now covers the EMBLEM S-ICD System for a subset of patients indicated for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy. As a result, an estimated 91 percent of the insured U.S. residents now has access through Medicare, Medicaid or their private health plan.

-- Received CE Mark for the LOTUS Edge(TM) Valve System**, the company’s next-generation transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) technology.

-- Announced data from the MAJESTIC trial of the Eluvia(TM) Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent System*** demonstrating 92.5% freedom from total lesion revascularization (FTLR) at two years, at the annual meeting of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE). Also at CIRSE, unveiled data from the All-Comer Registry for the Ranger Drug-Coated Balloon Catheter** confirming the benefit of an efficient-release drug coated balloon (DCB) in long lesions by achieving 91.9% FTLR rate at six months.

-- Made a $25 million strategic investment in VENITI Inc., a maker of stents for chronic venous insufficiency, which affects more than 20 million adults across the United States and Europe.

* We define Emerging Markets as including certain countries that we believe have strong growth potential based on their economic conditions, healthcare sectors and our global capabilities. Currently, we include 20 countries in our definition of Emerging Markets. ** The LOTUS Edge(TM) Valve System and Ranger(TM) Drug-Coated Balloon Catheter are not available for use or sale in the U.S. *** In the U.S., the Eluvia(TM) Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent System is an investigational device, limited by federal law to investigational use only.

*We measure and evaluate our reportable segments based on segment net sales and operating income, excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency. Sales generated from reportable segments, as well as operating results of reportable segments and corporate expenses, are based on internally-derived standard currency exchange rates, which may differ from year to year, and do not include intersegment profits. We exclude from segment operating income certain corporate-related expenses and certain transactions or adjustments that our chief operating decision maker considers to be non-operational, such as amounts related to intangible asset impairment charges; acquisition-related net charges and credits; restructuring- and restructuring-related net charges; litigation-related net charges and credits; pension termination charges; and amortization expense.  Although we exclude these amounts from segment operating income, they are included in reported consolidated operating income (loss) and are included in the reconciliation above.

An explanation of the company’s use of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this document.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income (earnings) and adjusted net income (earnings) per share that exclude certain amounts, and adjusted net sales that exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and/or the impact of recent acquisitions with significant sales. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to adjusted net income is GAAP net income and the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to adjusted net income per share is GAAP net income per share. To calculate adjusted net sales that exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, we convert actual net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and prior period. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to this constant currency growth rate and/or growth rates excluding the impacts of recent acquisitions with significant sales is growth rate percentages using net sales on a GAAP basis. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP financial 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 our business, to assess our performance relative to our 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 our operating segments. With the exception of the impact of recent acquisitions with significant sales, the adjustments excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures are consistent with those excluded from our operating segments’ measures of net sales and profit or loss. These adjustments are excluded from the segment measures that are reported to our chief operating decision maker that are used to make operating decisions and assess performance.

We believe that presenting adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share that exclude certain amounts, and adjusted net sales that exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and/or the impact of recent acquisitions with significant sales, in addition to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides investors greater transparency to the information used by management for its operational decision-making and allows investors to see our results "through the eyes" of management. We further believe that providing this information assists our investors in understanding our operating performance and 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, and for the forecasted three month period and full year ending December 31, 2016, as well as reasons for excluding each of these individual items:

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share:

-- Intangible asset impairment charges - This amount represents write-downs of certain intangible asset balances in the first nine months of 2016 and 2015. We review intangible assets subject to amortization quarterly to determine if any adverse conditions exist or a change in circumstances has occurred that would indicate impairment and test our indefinite-lived intangible assets at least annually for impairment. If we determine the carrying value of the amortizable intangible asset is not recoverable or we conclude that it is more likely than not that the indefinite-live asset is impaired, we will write the carrying value down to fair value in the period identified. We exclude the impact of impairment charges from management’s assessment of operating performance and from our operating segments’ measures of profit and loss used for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Accordingly, management has excluded intangible asset impairment charges for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Acquisition-related net charges (credits) - These adjustments may consist of (a) contingent consideration fair value adjustments; (b) gains on previously held investments; (c) purchased and/or funded in-process research and development expenses incurred outside of a business combination; and (d) due diligence, other fees, inventory step up amortization, and integration and exit costs. The contingent consideration adjustments represent accounting adjustments to state contingent consideration liabilities at their estimated fair value. These adjustments can be highly variable depending on the assessed likelihood and amount of future contingent consideration payments. Due diligence, other fees, inventory step-up amortization, and integration and exit costs include legal, tax, severance and other expenses associated with prior and potential future acquisitions that can be highly variable and not representative of ongoing operations. Accordingly, management excluded these amounts for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Restructuring and restructuring-related net charges (credits) - These adjustments represent severance and other direct costs associated with our restructuring programs. These costs are excluded by management in assessing our operating performance, as well as from our operating segments’ measures of profit and loss used for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Accordingly, management excluded these costs for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Litigation-related net charges (credits) - These adjustments include certain significant product liability and other litigation-related charges and credits. These amounts are excluded by management in assessing our operating performance, as well as from our operating segments’ measures of profit and loss used for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Accordingly, management excluded these amounts for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Debt extinguishment charges - This item represents premiums, accelerated amortization of debt issuance costs and investor discount costs net of interest rate hedge gains related to the early extinguishment of $1.0 billion of public senior notes during the second quarter of 2015. These adjustments are not expected to recur and do not reflect expected ongoing operating results. Accordingly, management excluded these amounts for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Pension termination charges - This item represents charges associated with the termination of the Guidant Retirement Plan, a frozen defined benefit plan. These charges are not expected to recur after 2015 and do not reflect expected ongoing operating results. Accordingly, management has excluded these amounts for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

-- Amortization expense - We record intangible assets at historical cost and amortize them over their estimated useful lives. Amortization expense is excluded from management’s assessment of operating performance and is also excluded from our operating segments’ measures of profit and loss used for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Accordingly, management has excluded amortization expense for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

Adjusted Net Sales Excluding the Impact of Changes in Foreign Currency Exchange Rates and/or the Impact of Recent Acquisitions with Significant Sales

-- The impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates is highly variable and difficult to predict. The impact of recent acquisitions with significant sales in the current period and no prior period equivalent may distort our presentation of organic growth. Accordingly, management excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and/or the impacts of recent acquisitions with significant sales for purposes of reviewing the net sales and growth rates to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and a comparison to our past operating performance.

Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share that exclude certain amounts, and adjusted net sales that exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and/or the impacts of recent acquisitions with significant sales, are not in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from or as a replacement for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Further, other companies may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, which may limit the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
