St. Jude Medical Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- St. Jude Medical, Inc. (NYS: STJ) today reported sales and net earnings for the second quarter ended June 29, 2013.

Second Quarter Sales


The Company reported net sales of $1.403 billion in the second quarter of 2013, slightly less than net sales of $1.410 billion in the second quarter of 2012. Unfavorable foreign currency translation comparisons decreased second quarter sales by approximately $31 million. On a currency neutral basis, net sales increased by approximately 2 percent from the second quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the Company's financial results, St. Jude Medical Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel J. Starks said, "During the second quarter, St. Jude Medical made good progress towards accelerating our sales growth on a sustainable basis. Our operating discipline, healthy balance sheet and strong cash flow will continue to allow us to fund disciplined acquisitions and return value to shareholders. We remain confident in our ability to deliver double-digit constant currency growth in 2013 adjusted earnings per share."

Total CRM sales, which include implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and pacemaker products, were $718 million for the second quarter of 2013, a 4 percent decrease compared to the second quarter of 2012. After adjusting for the impact of foreign currency, total CRM sales decreased 2 percent.

Second Quarter Earnings Results

In the second quarter, the Company recognized after-tax charges of $160 million, or $0.56 per share, primarily relating to debt retirement costs associated with the redemption of long-term notes prior to their scheduled maturities and continued actions associated with our previously announced restructuring activities. Including these items, reported net earnings for the second quarter of 2013 were $0.40 per share. This compares to reported net earnings for the second quarter of 2012 of $0.78 per share.

Adjusted net earnings for the second quarter of 2013 were $275 million, or $0.96 per share. This compares to adjusted net earnings for the second quarter of 2012 of $0.88 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 schedules at the end of the press release.

Third 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 third quarter and full-year 2013 by product category.

The Company expects its consolidated net earnings for the third quarter of 2013 to be in the range of $0.88 to $0.90 per share and for full-year 2013 consolidated net earnings to now be in the range of $3.70 to $3.73, increasing the lower end of the range by $0.02. 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 acquisition-related costs, 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 acquisitions, 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.
