DUBLIN, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2021, which ended October 30, 2020.

The company reported second quarter worldwide revenue of $7.647 billion, a decrease of 0.8 percent as reported and 1.5 percent on an organic basis, which adjusts for the $59 million benefit of foreign currency translation. Unless otherwise stated, all revenue growth rates in this press release are stated on an organic basis, which adjusts for the impact of foreign currency translation. There were no acquisitions made in the last year that had a significant impact on the company's second quarter revenue growth.

As reported, second quarter GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $489 million and $0.36, respectively. As detailed in the financial schedules included through the link at the end of this release, second quarter non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS were $1.380 billion and $1.02, respectively, both decreases of 22 percent. Adjusting for the negative 4 cent impact from foreign currency, second quarter non-GAAP diluted EPS decreased 19 percent.

Second quarter U.S. revenue of $4.054 billion represented 53 percent of company revenue and decreased 2 percent as reported and organic. Non-U.S. developed market revenue of $2.446 billion represented 32 percent of company revenue and increased 6 percent as reported and 1 percent organic. Emerging Markets revenue of $1.147 billion represented 15 percent of company revenue and decreased 9 percent as reported and 6 percent organic.

"We're seeing a faster-than-expected recovery and approaching year-over-year growth. Our revenue growth is improving, our pipeline is advancing, and we're gaining share in an increasing number of businesses. At the same time, we're in the process of implementing our new operating model and augmenting our culture with a focus on market share and being bold," said Geoff Martha, Medtronic chief executive officer. "Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we're well positioned to accelerate growth over the medium- and long-term as we continue investing in and progressing a number of opportunities, creating value for society and our shareholders."

Cardiac and Vascular Group
The Cardiac and Vascular Group (CVG) includes the Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure (CRHF), Coronary & Structural Heart (CSH), and Aortic, Peripheral & Venous (APV) divisions. CVG second quarter revenue of $2.725 billion decreased 4.6 percent as reported and 5.5 percent organic. CVG's revenue reflected a year-over-year decline in procedure volumes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; however, revenue did improve sequentially as procedures volumes continued to improve. CVG's organic performance was impacted by low-single digit declines in CRHF, mid-teens decline in CSH, and low-single digit declines in APV.

  • Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure second quarter revenue of $1.426 billion was flat as reported and decreased 1.3 percent organic. Arrhythmia Management revenue, including implantable defibrillators (ICDs), Pacemakers, Implantable Diagnostics, and Cardiac Ablation Solutions declined in the low-single digits. This included mid-seventies growth in Leadless Pacemakers, and specifically mid-eighties growth in the United States, on the continued global adoption of the company's Micra™ transcatheter pacing systems. Heart Failure declined low-single digits, as flat results in cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps) and mid-twenties declines in left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) were partially offset by mid-single digit growth in cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds) from the recent launch of Cobalt™ and Crome™.
  • Coronary & Structural Heart second quarter revenue of $831 million decreased 13.0 percent as reported and 13.6 organic, reflecting high-twenties declines in drug-eluting stents (DES). The company experienced a slowdown in DES sales in China ahead of the national tender announcement in mid-October. In addition, the company recorded a $26 million reserve as a result of the tender. Outside of China, DES sales declined in the mid-teens. While transcatheter aortic valves (TAVR) declined high-single digits versus the prior year, the company estimates it held share in the third calendar quarter versus the prior quarter.
  • Aortic, Peripheral & Venous second quarter revenue of $468 million decreased 1.3 percent as reported and 1.9 percent organic. Aortic grew in the low-single digits, Peripheral declined in the low-single digits, and Venous declined in the high-single digits.

Minimally Invasive Therapies Group
The Minimally Invasive Therapies Group (MITG) includes the Surgical Innovations (SI) and the Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal (RGR) divisions. MITG second quarter revenue of $2.285 billion increased 6.7 percent as reported and 6.2 percent organic. MITG's revenue reflected a year-over-year decline in procedure volumes offset by increased demand for COVID-19 related diagnostics and therapies. SI's mid-single digit organic decline was offset by low-thirties organic growth in RGR.

  • Surgical Innovations second quarter revenue of $1.393 billion decreased 4.2 percent as reported and 4.9 percent organic. Advanced Surgical declined low-single digits, reflecting the decline of worldwide surgical procedures. General Surgery products declined in the high-single digits.
  • Respiratory, Gastrointestinal & Renal second quarter revenue of $893 million increased 29.8 percent as reported and 29.7 organic, reflecting the increased demand for Respiratory Interventions products. Respiratory & Patient Monitoring grew in the low-forties, with sales of ventilators increasing nearly four-fold, as the company increased production of its PB980 high-acuity ventilator to address global demand.

Restorative Therapies Group
The Restorative Therapies Group (RTG) includes the Cranial and Spinal Technologies, Specialty Therapies, and Neuromodulation divisions. RTG second quarter revenue of $2.063 billion decreased 2.3 percent as reported and 2.9 percent organic. RTG's revenue reflected a year-over-year decline in procedure volumes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. RTG's organic performance this quarter included mid-single-digit declines in Cranial and Spinal Technologies, flat results in Specialty Therapies, and low-single digit declines in Neuromodulation.

  • Cranial and Spinal Technologies second quarter revenue of $1.071 billion decreased 4.1 percent as reported and 4.6 organic, including low-single digit declines in Spine and high-single digit declines in Enabling Technology. Core Spine declined in the low-single digits globally and grew in the low-single digits in the US. China Orthopedics (Kanghui) grew in the high-single digits.
  • Specialty Therapies second quarter revenue of $581 million increased 1.0 percent as reported and 0.3 percent organic. ENT declined in the high-single digits, Neurovascular increased in the low-single digits, and Pelvic Health increased in the mid-single digits.
  • Neuromodulation second quarter revenue of $411 million decreased 2.1 percent as reported and 3.1 percent organic, including mid-single digit declines in Pain Therapies and low-single digit growth in DBS.

Diabetes Group
Diabetes Group second quarter revenue of $574 million decreased 3.7 percent as reported and 5.0 percent organic. Diabetes Group revenue performance was impacted by a delay in new patient starts on insulin pumps and continued competitive pressure. CGM grew in the mid-single digits.

Given the uncertainty on near-term financial results caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company is not providing formal annual or quarterly financial guidance at this time.

This press release contains financial measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, and organic revenue, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable SEC rules and regulations. References to quarterly figures increasing, decreasing or remaining flat are in comparison to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Medtronic management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide information useful to investors in understanding the company's underlying operational performance and trends and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of other companies in the med tech industry.

Medtronic generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's review of the operational performance of the company and as a basis for strategic planning. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and investors are cautioned that Medtronic may calculate non-GAAP financial measures in a way that is different from other companies. Management strongly encourages investors to review the company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
