First Quarter Earnings Results

In the first quarter, the Company recognized after-tax special charges of $61 million, or $0.21 per share, primarily relating to our previously announced restructuring activities and acquisition related charges including a loss on a previously held cost investment. In accordance with GAAP, the Company also recognized a $21 million income tax benefit in the first quarter, or $0.07 per share, relating to the 2012 benefit from the federal research & development tax credit that was extended in January 2013, retroactive to the beginning of the 2012 tax year. Including these items, reported net earnings for the first quarter of 2013 were $0.78 per share. This compares to reported net earnings for the first quarter of 2012 of $0.67 per share.

Adjusted net earnings for the first quarter of 2013 were $263 million, or $0.92 per share. This compares to adjusted net earnings for the first quarter of 2012 of $0.86 per share. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net earnings per share to the Company's GAAP net earnings per share is provided in the schedule at the end of the press release.

Second Quarter and Full-Year 2013 Sales and Earnings Guidance

During a conference call today, St. Jude Medical will provide its range for revenue expectations for the second quarter and full-year 2013 by product category.

The Company expects its consolidated net earnings for the second quarter of 2013 to be in the range of $0.93 to $0.95 per share and for full-year 2013 consolidated net earnings to be in the range of $3.68 to $3.73. A further reconciliation of the Company's quarterly and annual guidance is provided in the schedule below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company provides adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share because St. Jude Medical management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain adjustments (such as in-process research and development charges, impairment charges, restructuring charges, litigation charges or litigation reserve adjustments and income tax adjustments). These adjustments result from facts and circumstances (such as business development activities, restructuring activities, asset impairment events or developments, settlements and other developments relating to litigation and resolution of audits by tax authorities) that vary in frequency and impact on the Company's results of operations. St. Jude Medical management uses adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share to forecast and evaluate the operational performance of the Company as well as to compare results of current periods to prior periods on a consolidated basis.

The Company provides constant currency sales growth because St. Jude Medical management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of foreign currency translation on net sales. St. Jude Medical management uses constant currency sales growth to forecast and evaluate the operational performance of the Company as well as to compare sales of current periods to prior periods.

Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
