We met our financial and operational goals despite the challenging macroeconomic climate facing our industry,? said Edward J. Ludwig, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. ?Our solid performance has enabled us to continue to return significant value to shareholders and also to invest in key geographic expansion, new product platforms and businesses and operational excellence programs. We have confidence in our outlook for fiscal year 2011 and remain committed to serving our customers with superior healthcare products.?Update on the Sale of Certain Assets in the BD Medical Segment In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company completed the sale of the Ophthalmic Systems unit as well as the surgical blades, critical care and extended dwell catheter product platforms. The results of operations associated with the Ophthalmic Systems unit, surgical blade platform and critical care platform have been reclassified as discontinued operations for all quarters and years referred to in this release. As illustrated on page 3 of the attached financial tables, diluted earnings per share from discontinued operations for the fourth quarter of $0.44 consisted of $0.06 from operations and $0.39 from the gain on the sale.  Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of $1.68 less the $0.44 from discontinued operations resulted in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.24.  Diluted earnings per share from discontinued operations for the year of $0.59 consisted of $0.21 from operations and $0.38 from the gain on the sale.  Diluted earnings per share for the year of $5.49 less the $0.59 from discontinued operations resulted in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $4.90.   Also included in the attached financial tables are the Company?s Consolidated Income Statements for the first three quarters of fiscal year 2010 and for all periods in fiscal year 2009 for reference, which reflect the reclassification change for the Ophthalmic Systems unit, surgical blade platform and critical care platform. The results of operations associated with the extended dwell catheter product platform are reported within continuing operations, as this asset group did not meet the criteria for discontinued operations. Fourth Quarter Earnings and Analysis of the Full Fiscal Year 2010 and 2009 EarningsReported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter were $1.24, compared with $1.20 in the prior-year period, representing a 3.3 percent increase. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter increased by 1.7 percent.  For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2010, reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $4.90, compared with $4.73 in the prior fiscal year, representing an increase of 3.6 percent. Current full fiscal year results include a previously disclosed non-cash charge of $8.9 million, or $0.04 per share from continuing operations, related to healthcare reform impacting Medicare Part D reimbursements. The prior fiscal year included a $20 million, or $0.08 per share, tax benefit related to various tax settlements in multiple jurisdictions and a litigation charge of $45 million, or $0.11 per share, which were also previously disclosed. Excluding these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased by 3.8 percent to $4.94, compared with $4.76 adjusted diluted earnings per share in the prior-year period. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fiscal year increased 9.2 percent.Segment ResultsIn the BD Medical segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $959 million, representing a decrease of 0.3 percent compared with the prior-year period. Revenues increased 2.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. Segment revenue growth reflected an unfavorable comparison to the prior year of 4.3 percentage points due to the sales related to the H1N1 flu pandemic in fiscal year 2009, partially offset by strong growth in the Diabetes Care business. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2010, BD Medical revenues increased 6.7 percent, or 6.2 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.In the BD Diagnostics segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $591 million, representing an increase of 2.0 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 3.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.  Segment revenue growth was negatively impacted by 2.4 percentage points due to sales related to the flu pandemic in fiscal year 2009 in addition to lower lab testing and reduced physician office visits. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2010, BD Diagnostics revenues increased 4.2 percent, or 4.0 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.In the BD Biosciences segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $323 million, representing an increase of 3.5 percent compared with the prior-year period. Revenues increased 5.3 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis, primarily driven by instrument and reagent sales in the Cell Analysis business unit. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2010, BD Biosciences revenues increased 4.4 percent, or 6.8 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.Geographic ResultsFourth quarter revenues in the U.S. were $832 million, representing an increase of 1.4 percent compared with the prior-year period, including a negative impact of 1.8 percentage points related to the flu pandemic.  Revenues outside of the U.S. were $1.041 billion, representing an increase of 0.8 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 4.2 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. International revenue growth was negatively impacted by 4 percentage points due to the H1N1 flu pandemic-related sales in fiscal year 2009. Revenues reflected continuing strength in emerging markets, which was partially offset by slower growth in Europe. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2010, revenues in the U.S. were $3.287 billion, representing an increase of 5.0 percent compared with the prior-year period.  Revenues outside of the U.S. were $4.086 billion, representing an increase of 5.9 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 6.0 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.Fiscal 2011 Outlook for Full Year The Company estimates that reported revenues for the full fiscal year 2011 will increase about 4 percent.  The Company also expects reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2011 to be between $5.45 and $5.55, an increase of approximately 11 to 13 percent over fiscal year 2010.  Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2011 are expected to increase 10 to 12 percent over adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, excluding specified item, of $4.94 for the fiscal year 2010.Conference Call InformationA conference call regarding BD?s fourth quarter results and its expectations for the full fiscal year 2011 will be broadcast live on BD?s website, www.bd.com/investors, along with related slides, at 10:00 a.m. (ET) Thursday, November 4, 2010.  The conference call will be available for replay on BD?s website, www.bd.com/investors, or at 1-800-642-1687 (domestic) and 1-706-645-9291 (international) through the close of business on Thursday, November 11, 2010, access code 15660232.
