Medtronic reports third quarter fiscal 2022 financial results

Company advanced its pipeline, launched new products, won share, and delivered earnings growth despite COVID-19 impact on healthcare procedure volumes

DUBLIN, Feb. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2022, which ended January 28, 2022.

Key Highlights

  • Revenue of $7.8 billion was flat year-over-year as reported and grew 2% organic
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $1.10 grew 17%; non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.37 grew 6%
  • Company issues Q4 revenue and EPS guidance

The company reported third quarter worldwide revenue of $7.763 billion, flat year-over-year as reported and an increase of 2% on an organic basis, which excludes the $137 million negative impact of foreign currency translation. 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. The company’s third quarter revenue results reflect the unfavorable market impact of COVID-19 and health system labor shortages on medical device procedure volumes, primarily in the U.S.

As reported, third quarter GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.480 billion and $1.10, respectively, both increases of 17%. As detailed in the financial schedules included at the end of this release, third quarter non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS were $1.846 billion and $1.37, respectively, increases of 5% and 6%, respectively.

Third quarter U.S. revenue of $3.939 billion represented 51% of company revenue and was flat year-over-year. Non-U.S. developed market revenue of $2.438 billion represented 31% of company revenue and decreased 3% as reported and increased 1% organic. Emerging Markets revenue of $1.385 billion represented 18% of company revenue and increased 5% as reported and 7% organic.

“We continue to transform Medtronic, advancing our pipeline, launching new products, and winning share. The impact of the COVID-19 resurgence on healthcare procedure volumes, particularly in the United States, peaked in the final weeks of our quarter in January, causing our revenue to fall short of our expectations,” said Geoff Martha, Medtronic chairman and chief executive officer. “We expect healthcare procedures to reaccelerate post-Omicron, and our commitment to durable and higher growth remains steadfast.” 

Cardiovascular Portfolio
The Cardiovascular Portfolio includes the Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure (CRHF), Structural Heart & Aortic (SHA), and Coronary & Peripheral Vascular (CPV) divisions. Cardiovascular revenue of $2.745 billion increased 1% as reported and 3% organic, driven by mid-single digit organic growth in CRHF and SHA and low-single digit organic growth in CPV.

  • Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure revenue of $1.402 billion increased 2% as reported and 4% organic. Adjusting for the discontinuation of HVAD™ System sales, CRHF revenue increased 7% organic. Cardiac Rhythm Management revenue increased in the high-single digits, with low-single digit growth in Defibrillation Solutions and high-single digit growth in Cardiac Pacing Therapies, including high-twenties growth in Leadless Pacemakers on the continued global adoption of Micra™ transcatheter pacing systems. Cardiovascular Diagnostics revenue grew in the low-single digits, as market procedure volumes were affected by COVID-19 resurgence. Cardiac Ablation Solutions revenue increased in the high-single digits on the continued adoption of Arctic Front Advance™ cryoballoon catheters and consoles.
  • Structural Heart & Aortic revenue of $740 million increased 1% as reported and 4% organic. Structural Heart grew in the mid-teens, including mid-teens growth in transcatheter aortic valves (TAVR). Aortic declined in the mid-twenties, as a result of supply challenges and the impact of the COVID-19 resurgence on procedure volumes. Cardiac Surgery increased in the low-double digits, driven by strength in extracorporeal life support products.
  • Coronary & Peripheral Vascular revenue of $603 million was flat year-over-year as reported and increased 1% organic. Coronary & Renal Denervation (CRDN) decreased in the mid-single digits, given the impact of COVID-19 on percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. Peripheral Vascular Health increased in the low-double digits, including low-twenties endoVenous growth on strong sales of the VenaSeal™ closure system and the Abre™ deep venous stent.

Medical Surgical Portfolio
The Medical Surgical Portfolio includes the Surgical Innovations (SI) and the Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal (RGR) divisions. Medical Surgical revenue of $2.290 billion decreased 1% as reported and increased 1% organic, with high-single digit organic growth in SI offset by low double-digit organic declines in RGR. Excluding the impact of ventilator sales given the increased COVID-19 related demand in the prior year, Medical Surgical revenue increased 6% organic.

  • Surgical Innovations revenue of $1.519 billion increased 7% as reported and 9% organic. The division had high-single digit growth in Advanced Surgical Instruments, driven by the continued adoption of the company’s LigaSure™ and Sonicision™ vessel sealing and dissection technologies, and Tri-Staple™ reinforced reloads. Hernia & Wound Management increased in the low-twenties, with strength in sutures.
  • Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal revenue of $771 million decreased 13% as reported and 12% organic. Excluding the impact of ventilator sales, RGR revenue was flat year-over-year organic. Respiratory Interventions decreased in the mid-thirties, with sales of ventilators declining in the high-fifties as demand returns to pre-pandemic levels. Patient Monitoring was flat year-over-year, with mid-single digit growth in both Nellcor™ pulse oximetry products and Perioperative Complications products offset by mid-twenties declines in Respiratory Compromise solutions. Gastrointestinal revenue increased in the mid-single digits, driven by strong sales of ManoScan™ manometry systems and Emprint™ ablation systems. Renal Care Solutions increased in the mid-single digits with strength in acute therapies and renal access products.

Neuroscience Portfolio
The Neuroscience Portfolio includes the Cranial & Spinal Technologies (CST), Specialty Therapies, and Neuromodulation divisions. Neuroscience revenue of $2.144 billion increased 1% as reported and 2% organic, with low-single digit growth in CST and Specialty Therapies, partially offset by low-single digit declines in Neuromodulation, all on an organic basis.

  • Cranial & Spinal Technologies revenue of $1.102 billion increased 2% as reported and 3% organic. Spine & Biologics increased in the high-single digits, driven by mid-teens growth in Biologics and mid-single digit Core Spine growth in the U.S. and non-U.S. developed markets. Neurosurgery was flat year-over-year, as declines due to a difficult comparison from strong capital equipment sales in the third quarter of the prior year offset growth in powered surgical instruments, advanced energy products, and CSF management.
  • Specialty Therapies revenue of $633 million increased 2% as reported and 3% organic. Neurovascular increased in the low double-digits, with high-teens growth in hemorrhagic stroke products. Pelvic Health decreased in the mid-single digits, as procedure volumes were affected by the COVID-19 resurgence. ENT declined in the low single-digits as a result of supply chain disruptions.
  • Neuromodulation revenue of $409 million decreased 4% as reported and 3% organic. Brain Modulation increased in the mid-teens, driven by the continued adoption of the Percept™ PC deep brain stimulation (DBS) system and SenSight™ directional DBS lead system. Pain Therapies declined in the low-double digits, with high-teens declines in Targeted Drug Delivery and mid-single digit declines in Pain Stim given ongoing market pressure on procedures due to COVID-19. At the same time, the company continued to win share in Pain Stim on strong adoption of its Vanta™ and Intellis™ with DTM™ SCS neurostimulators. Interventional declined in the low-single digits given the impact of COVID-19 on procedure volumes.

Diabetes revenue of $584 million decreased 7% as reported and 5% organic, with high-teens declines in the U.S. partially offset by mid-single digit growth in international markets. International growth was driven by low-double digit growth in sales of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) products, mid-single digit growth in consumable sales, and flat results year-over-year in sales of durable insulin pumps.

The company today issued its fiscal year 2022 fourth quarter revenue growth and EPS guidance.

The company expects fourth quarter organic revenue growth of approximately 5.5%, in line with current fourth quarter organic revenue growth Street consensus. If recent foreign currency exchange rates hold, fourth quarter revenue would be negatively affected by approximately $185 million.

The company expects fourth quarter non-GAAP EPS in the range of $1.56 to $1.58, which includes a neutral to slightly positive impact from foreign currency based on recent rates.

“Despite the challenges created by the pandemic, our teams executed and delivered adjusted EPS in-line with our guidance and a penny ahead of consensus,” said Karen Parkhill, Medtronic chief financial officer. “We are starting to see procedure volumes improve, and our outlook assumes continued recovery through March and April. By the time we exit the fourth quarter, we expect procedure volumes in most of our markets to be back to pre-COVID levels.”
