 The company reported first quarter worldwide revenue of $7.987 billion, an increase of 23% as reported and 19% on an organic basis, which excludes the $245 million benefit of foreign currency translation. Revenue growth rates have not been adjusted for the negative impact of the extra selling week in the first quarter of last fiscal year. The company’s first quarter results reflect a strong recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on elective procedures that the company experienced in 2020. Unless otherwise stated, all revenue growth rates in this press release are stated on an organic basis, which excludes the impact of foreign currency translation.

As reported, first quarter GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $763 million and $0.56, respectively, increases of 57% and 56%, respectively. As detailed in the financial schedules included at the end of this release, first quarter non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS were $1.908 billion and $1.41, respectively, increases of 128% and 127%, respectively.

First quarter U.S. revenue of $4.101 billion represented 51% of company revenue and increased 22%. Non-U.S. developed market revenue of $2.601 billion represented 33% of company revenue and increased 20% as reported and 11% organic. Emerging Markets revenue of $1.286 billion represented 16% of company revenue and increased 31% as reported and 25% organic.

“Fiscal 2022 is off to a strong start with our first quarter results coming in ahead of our expectations, reflecting solid execution and continued procedure volume recovery, with most of our businesses at or above pre-COVID levels,” said Geoff Martha, Medtronic chairman and chief executive officer. “In addition, we drove market share gains across a number of our businesses, including three of our largest:  Cardiac Rhythm Management, Surgical Innovations, and Cranial & Spinal Technologies. Looking ahead, we have some big opportunities in front of us, with near-term milestones in both our renal denervation and surgical robotics businesses. These opportunities, combined with the broader investments we’re making in our pipeline, set us up well to accelerate our top line growth.”

Cardiovascular Portfolio
The Cardiovascular Portfolio includes the Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure (CRHF), Structural Heart & Aortic (SHA), and Coronary & Peripheral Vascular (CPV) divisions. Cardiovascular first quarter revenue of $2.890 billion increased 19% as reported and 15% organic, driven by low-twenties organic growth in SHA, mid-teens organic growth in CRHF, and high-single digit growth in CPV.

  • Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure first quarter revenue of $1.483 billion increased 19% as reported and 15% organic. Adjusting for the discontinuation of HVAD™ System sales, CRHF revenue increased 19% organic. Cardiac Rhythm Management revenue increased in the high-teens, driven by low-double digit growth in Defibrillation Solutions and low-twenties growth in Cardiac Pacing Therapies, including low-thirties growth in Leadless Pacemakers on the continued global adoption of the Micra™ transcatheter pacing system. Cardiac Ablation Solutions revenue increased in the low-thirties on strong adoption of Arctic Front Advance™ cryoballoon catheters and consoles. Cardiovascular Diagnostics revenue grew in the low-double digits.
  • Structural Heart & Aortic first quarter revenue of $787 million increased 26% as reported and 21% organic. Structural Heart grew in the high-thirties, driven by mid-thirties growth in transcatheter aortic valves (TAVR), including high-forties TAVR growth in the United States. Cardiac Surgery increased in the high-teens. Aortic declined in the low-single digits, as the financial impact of the previously announced global recall of the Valiant Navion™ thoracic stent graft system offset low-twenties growth in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) stent grafts.
  • Coronary & Peripheral Vascular first quarter revenue of $620 million increased 11% as reported and 7% organic. Coronary & Renal Denervation (CRDN) declined in the low-single digits, given the impact of previously announced coronary tenders in China. Excluding China, CRDN revenue grew in the high-single digits. Peripheral Vascular Health increased in the low-twenties, with mid-teens growth in IN.PACT™ drug-coated balloons and mid-fifties endoVenous growth on strong sales of VenaSeal™ and ClosureFast™ superficial vein products and Abre™ venous stents.

Medical Surgical Portfolio
The Medical Surgical Portfolio includes the Surgical Innovations (SI) and the Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal (RGR) divisions. Medical Surgical first quarter revenue of $2.322 billion increased 29% as reported and 25% organic, with high-thirties organic growth in SI and mid-single digit organic growth in RGR.

  • Surgical Innovations first quarter revenue of $1.554 billion increased 44% as reported and 39% organic. The division had low-forties growth in Vessel Sealing and high-thirties growth in Advanced Stapling, driven by the continued adoption of the company’s LigaSure™, Sonicision™, and Tri-Staple™ technologies. Hernia & Wound Management increased in the mid-thirties, with strength in sutures and hernia product lines.
  • Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal first quarter revenue of $768 million increased 7% as reported and 3% organic. Patient Monitoring increased in the mid-twenties, with mid-thirties growth in the company’s Nellcor™ pulse oximetry products. Respiratory Interventions decreased in the mid-twenties, with sales of ventilators declining in the low-forties as demand returns to pre-pandemic levels. Gastrointestinal revenue increased in the high-twenties on low-fifties growth in Esophageal & Gastric. Renal Care Solutions increased in the mid-single digits with strong growth in acute therapies.

Neuroscience Portfolio
The Neuroscience Portfolio includes the Cranial & Spinal Technologies (CST), Specialty Therapies, and Neuromodulation divisions. Neuroscience first quarter revenue of $2.204 billion increased 29% as reported and 26% organic, with high-thirties growth in Neuromodulation and Specialty Therapies and high-teens growth in CST, all on an organic basis.

  • Cranial & Spinal Technologies first quarter revenue of $1.123 billion increased 19% as reported and 17% organic. Spine & Biologics grew in the low-double digits and Neurosurgery increased in the low-twenties, as spine surgeons continue to adopt the Medtronic ecosystem of spine implants and enabling technology, including Mazor™ robotics, StealthStation™ navigation, O-arm™ imaging, and Midas Rex™ powered surgical instruments.
  • Specialty Therapies first quarter revenue of $641 million increased 42% as reported and 37% organic. Neurovascular increased in the high-single digits and ENT increased in the mid-thirties. Pelvic Health increased 134%, driven by continued strong adoption of the InterStim™ Micro sacral neuromodulation system.
  • Neuromodulation first quarter revenue of $440 million increased 40% as reported and 37% organic. Brain Modulation increased in the high-thirties, driven by the launch of the Percept™ PC deep brain stimulation system. Pain Therapies increased in the low-forties, with Targeted Drug Delivery revenue more than doubling on the backlog recovery of replacement procedures, and Pain Stim revenue growing in the mid-twenties on strong uptake of Intellis™ with DTM™ SCS therapy. Interventional grew in the low-twenties.

Diabetes first quarter revenue of $572 million increased 2% as reported and declined 3% organic. Diabetes quarterly revenue performance was driven by high-single digit growth in durable pumps, including strong growth in international markets on the continued launch of the MiniMed™ 780G system. This was offset by mid-teens declines in U.S. sales of consumables and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) products.

The company today reiterated its revenue growth guidance and raised the lower end of its EPS guidance range for fiscal year 2022.

The company continues to expect revenue growth in its fiscal year 2022 to approximate 9% on an organic basis. If current exchange rates hold, revenue growth in fiscal year 2022 would be positively affected by approximately $100 to $200 million.

The company increased its fiscal year 2022 diluted non-GAAP EPS guidance from the prior range of $5.60 to $5.75 to the new range of $5.65 to $5.75, including an estimated 5 to 10 cent positive impact from foreign currency exchange versus a 10 to 15 cent positive impact previously.

“We’re reiterating our revenue guidance for the year while increasing the lower end of our EPS range on the back of our first quarter results,” said Karen Parkhill, Medtronic chief financial officer. “We remain focused on accelerating our long-term revenue growth and generating strong returns for our shareholders. In addition to growing our dividend, we are increasing our investments at the front end of major product launches, growing our R&D spend broadly across the company, and executing disciplined tuck-in acquisitions.”
