The sale was completed on October 31, 2012.FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $1.967 billion for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012, representing a decrease of 1.1 percent from the prior-year period, or an increase of 4.7 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.  For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, BD reported revenues of $7.708 billion, representing an increase of 1.6 percent over the prior-year period or 4.3 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. "We are proud of our solid finish to 2012," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President. "Despite a challenging macroeconomic environment, we delivered on our financial and operating goals while continuing our ongoing investments in geographic expansion, new product platforms and strategic acquisitions. We believe we are well positioned to succeed and will continue to focus on our strategy of investing and innovating for growth.  We are confident in our outlook for fiscal year 2013 and remain committed to delivering value to our customers and shareholders." Sale of Discovery Labware Unit, Excluding Advanced BioprocessingIn April 2012, the Company signed a definitive agreement to sell its BD Biosciences - Discovery Labware unit, excluding its Advanced Bioprocessing platform, to Corning Incorporated. The results of operations associated with this disposal group have been reclassified as discontinued operations for all quarters and years referred to in this release. The transaction was completed on October 31, 2012 and the Company will record a gain within discontinued operations in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.  Fourth Quarter and Analysis of the Full Fiscal Year 2012 and 2011 EarningsReported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter were $1.35, representing an increase of 4.7 percent over the prior-year period. Current quarter results included a charge of $20 million, or $0.07 per share from continuing operations, resulting from primarily non-cash pension settlements. The prior-year period results included a non-cash charge of $9 million, or $0.03 per share from continuing operations, resulting from the discontinuance of a research program within the Diagnostic Systems unit.  Excluding these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased by 7.6 percent to $1.42, compared with $1.32 in the prior-year period. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter increased by 15.2 percent. For the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $5.30, representing a decrease of 0.2 percent over the prior-year period.  Excluding the aforementioned charges of $0.06 per share from continuing operations in fiscal year 2012, and $0.03 per share from continuing operations in fiscal year 2011, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased by 0.8 percent to $5.37, compared with $5.33 in the prior-year period. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fiscal year increased 4.7 percent. On a full year basis, the charge of $20 million, or $0.06 per share from continuing operations, differs from the charge in the fourth quarter of $0.07 per share from continuing operations due to the number of average shares outstanding between the fourth quarter and full year. Segment ResultsIn the BD Medical segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $1.049 billion, representing a decrease of 0.5 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 5.9 percent on a currency-neutral basis. The segment's revenue growth reflected strong sales across all three business units. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2012, BD Medical revenues increased 2.1 percent, or 5.1 percent on a currency-neutral basis. In the BD Diagnostics segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $645 million, representing an increase of 0.5 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 5.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The segment's growth was primarily driven by solid sales of Preanalytical Systems safety-engineered products and strong sales in the Diagnostic Systems unit, aided by the recent acquisition of KIESTRA.  For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2012, BD Diagnostics revenues increased 2.3 percent, or 4.5 percent on a currency-neutral basis. In the BD Biosciences segment, worldwide revenues for the quarter were $273 million, representing a decrease of 6.3 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 0.7 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis.  Segment results continue to be negatively affected by weakness in the U.S. research market. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2012, BD Biosciences revenues decreased by 1.5 percent. On a foreign currency-neutral basis, revenues increased by 0.7 percent.Geographic ResultsFourth quarter revenues in the U.S. were $824 million, representing an increase of 1.2 percent compared with the prior-year period. Revenues outside of the U.S. were $1.143 billion, representing a decrease of 2.6 percent compared with the prior-year period, or an increase of 7.1 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. International revenues reflected continued strength in emerging markets and strong sales of safety-engineered products. For the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2012, revenues in the U.S. were $3.288 billion, representing an increase of 1.2 percent compared with the prior-year period. Revenues outside of the U.S. were $4.421 billion, representing an increase of 1.9 percent compared with the prior-year period, or 6.6 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. Fiscal 2013 Outlook for Full Year The Company estimates that reported revenues for the full fiscal year 2013 will increase 2 to 3 percent, or about 3.5 to 4.5 percent on a foreign currency-neutral basis. The Company expects reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full fiscal year 2013 to be between $5.58 and $5.64. On a currency-neutral basis, the Company expects diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to grow 7 to 8 percent, or 10 to 11 percent excluding the impact of the medical device tax that goes into effect in January 2013 under the U.S. healthcare reform law. The Company also plans to repurchase, subject to market conditions, about $500 million of its common stock in 2013.
