"We've seen this year that our strategy of category leadership, focus on high-growth markets and smart tuck-in M&A deals, combined with execution by our global team and an exciting pipeline, positions us well for the long term," said Mike Mahoney, chairman and chief executive officer, Boston Scientific. "Despite some softness this quarter, including the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we're confident that we will achieve our growth goals as the pandemic wanes."

Third quarter financial results and recent developments:

  • Reported net sales of $2.932 billion, representing an increase of 10.3 percent on a reported basis and 10.6 percent on an organic basis, both compared to the company's guidance range of 12 to 14 percent, all versus the prior year period.
  • Reported GAAP net income available to common stockholders of $0.28 per share, compared to the company's guidance range of $0.20 to $0.22 per share and achieved adjusted EPS of $0.41 compared to the guidance range of $0.39 to $0.41 per share.
  • Achieved net sales growth in each reportable segment4, compared to the prior year period:
    • MedSurg: 11.2 percent reported, 10.6 percent operational and 9.4 percent organic
    • Rhythm and Neuro: 8.2 percent reported, 7.8 percent operational and 1.5 percent organic
    • Cardiovascular: 19.4 percent reported, 18.5 percent operational and organic
  • Achieved the following regional5 net sales growth, compared to the prior year period:
    • U.S.: 15.4 percent reported and operational
    • EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa): 9.3 percent reported and 7.9 percent operational
    • APAC (Asia-Pacific): 9.5 percent reported and 8.2 percent operational
    • Emerging Markets3: 21.9 percent reported and 17.8 percent operational
  • Completed acquisitions of the global surgical business of Lumenis LTD., a privately held company that develops and commercializes energy-based medical solutions, and of Farapulse, Inc., the first company to commercialize a cardiac pulsed field ablation technology.
  • Announced agreements to acquire Baylis Medical Company Inc. to expand Boston Scientific electrophysiology and structural heart product portfolios, and Devoro Medical Inc., to expand the company's full suite of interventional strategies for thromboemboli. Both acquisitions are subject to customary closing conditions.
  • Received U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the EXALT™ Model B Single-Use Bronchoscope for use in a wide range of bronchoscopy procedures in the intensive care unit (ICU) and operating room (OR), such as secretion management, airway intubation, percutaneous tracheostomy, double lumen endotracheal tube placement and biopsies. In the United States, more than 1.2 million bedside procedures6 involving a bronchoscope are performed in ICU and OR settings each year.
  • Received a New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) designation from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the EXALT™ Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope, used to diagnose and treat pancreatic and biliary conditions during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures.
  • Initiated the SABRE randomized controlled trial, the first global study to examine the effectiveness of SpaceOAR Vue™ Hydrogel in reducing late gastrointestinal toxicity in patients receiving stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) treatment for prostate cancer.
  • Initiated the HI-PEITHO randomized trial, the first ever comparative study in the interventional field of PE treatment, evaluating the EkoSonic™ Endovascular System (EKOS system) in combination with anticoagulation versus anticoagulation alone, for the treatment of acute, intermediate-high-risk pulmonary embolism. Also presented at VIVA21 late-breaking clinical data from the KNOCOUT PE registry, which reaffirmed the safety and efficacy of the EKOS system for the treatment of patients with intermediate-high and high-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) and found zero intracerebral hemorrhages as well as low major bleeding rates among the patients in the analysis.
  • Presented positive late-breaking clinical trial data for the Eluvia™ Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent System and the Ranger™ Drug-Coated Balloon at VIVA21, with the Eluvia stent exhibiting superiority compared to bare metal stents – the largest randomized trial of drug-eluting therapies in the field of peripheral artery disease – and the Ranger DCB demonstrating continued high rates of primary patency and a significant reduction in reinterventions at two years.
  • Announced late-breaking results from the EPOCH clinical trial, which demonstrated improved progression-free survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer after treatment with TheraSphere™ Y-90 Glass Microspheres and represents the first positive phase 3 study for selective internal radiation therapy in any disease setting. Data from the trial was presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2021, simultaneously published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and is expected to support the company's regulatory submission to the FDA for an expanded indication.
  • Presented at Heart Rhythm 2021, the Heart Rhythm Society's Annual Meeting, positive real-world data supporting the next-generation WATCHMAN FLX™ and legacy WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure Devices as alternatives to oral anticoagulation therapy for stroke risk reduction in people with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Findings included patient follow-up visit data from the European FLXibility registry with the WATCHMAN FLX device demonstrating high rates of effective LAA closure and low rates of short-term complications through 120 days.
  • Received Japanese Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) approval and commenced the Japanese launch of the POLARx™ Cryoablation System, which is indicated for the treatment of patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF), an intermittent form of AF which causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate.

 

1. Operational net sales growth excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

2. Organic net sales growth excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and net sales attributable to acquisitions and divestitures for which there are less than a full period of comparable net sales.

3 We define Emerging Markets as the 20 countries that we believe have strong growth potential based on their economic conditions, healthcare sectors and our global capabilities. Periodically, we assess our list of Emerging Markets countries, and effective January 1, 2021, modified our list to include the following countries: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam. We have revised prior period amounts to conform to the current year's presentation which had an immaterial impact on previously reported Emerging Markets net sales.

4. We have three historical reportable segments comprised of Medical Surgical (MedSurg), Rhythm and Neuro, and Cardiovascular, which represent an aggregation of our operating segments that generate revenues from the sale of medical devices (Medical Devices).

5. On March 1, 2021, we completed the sale of the Specialty Pharmaceuticals business. Our consolidated net sales include Specialty Pharmaceuticals up to the date of the closing of the transaction. Specialty Pharmaceuticals net sales were substantially U.S. based and presented as a stand-alone operating segment alongside our Medical Device reportable segments.

6.  Data on file at Boston Scientific Corporation. Market research is as of 2019 and includes projections for 2020, incorporating estimates for the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company now estimates EPS on a GAAP basis in a range of $0.83 to $0.85 and estimates adjusted EPS, excluding certain charges (credits), of $1.60 to $1.62.

The company estimates net sales growth for the fourth quarter of 2021, versus the prior year period, to be in a range of approximately 13 to 17 percent on a reported basis, and approximately 12 to 16 percent on an organic basis. Fourth quarter organic net sales guidance excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and the acquisitions of Preventice, Farapulse and Lumenis, as well as the divestiture of the Specialty Pharmaceuticals business.

(1) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the effect of assuming the conversion of Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock (MCPS) into shares of common stock was anti-dilutive, and therefore excluded from the calculation of EPS. Accordingly, GAAP net income and adjusted net income were reduced by cumulative Preferred stock dividends, as presented in our unaudited consolidated statements of operations, for purposes of calculating net income available to common stockholders.

(1) For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the effect of assuming the conversion of MCPS into shares of common stock was anti-dilutive, and therefore excluded from the calculation of EPS. Accordingly, GAAP net loss and adjusted net income were reduced by cumulative Preferred stock dividends, as presented in our unaudited consolidated statements of operations, for purposes of calculating EPS. We have assumed dilution of 13.6 million common stock equivalents related to employee stock options for all or a portion of the non-GAAP adjustments, which were anti-dilutive for GAAP purposes due to our net loss position.

(1) For the nine  months ended September 30, 2020, the effect of assuming the conversion of MCPS into shares of common stock was anti-dilutive, and therefore excluded from the calculation of EPS. Accordingly, GAAP net loss and adjusted net income were reduced by cumulative Preferred stock dividends, as presented in our unaudited consolidated statements of operations, for purposes of calculating EPS. We have assumed dilution of 14.1 million common stock equivalents related to employee stock options for all or a portion of the non-GAAP adjustments, which were anti-dilutive for GAAP purposes due to our net loss position.














An explanation of the company's use of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this document.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and adjusted net income (loss) per share (EPS) that exclude certain amounts; operational net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations; and organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations as well as the impact of certain acquisitions and divestitures with less than a full period of comparable net sales. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and should not be considered in isolation from or as a replacement for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Further, other companies may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, which may limit the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

To calculate adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and adjusted net income (loss) per share we exclude certain charges (credits) from GAAP net income (loss) and GAAP net income (loss) available to common stockholders. Amounts are presented after-tax at the company's effective tax rate, unless the amount is a significant unusual or infrequently occurring item in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) section 740-270-30, "General Methodology and Use of Estimated Annual Effective Tax Rate." Please refer to Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our most recent Annual Report filed on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission or any Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that we file thereafter for an explanation of each of these adjustments and the reasons for excluding each item.

The GAAP financial measures most directly comparable to adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and adjusted net income (loss) per share are GAAP net income (loss), GAAP net income (loss) available to common stockholders and GAAP net income (loss) per common share - assuming dilution, respectively.

To calculate operational net sales growth rates, which exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, we convert actual net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and prior periods. To calculate organic net sales growth rates, we also remove the impact of acquisitions and divestitures with less than a full period of comparable net sales. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to operational net sales and organic net sales is net sales on a GAAP basis.

Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP financial measure are included in the accompanying schedules.

Management uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in our business, to assess our performance relative to our competitors and to establish operational goals and forecasts that are used in allocating resources. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to further its understanding of the performance of our operating segments. The adjustments excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures are consistent with those excluded from our operating segments' measures of net sales and profit or loss. These adjustments are excluded from the segment measures reported to our chief operating decision maker that are used to make operating decisions and assess performance.

We believe that presenting adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders, adjusted net income (loss) per share, operational net sales growth rates and organic net sales growth rates, in addition to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides investors greater transparency to the information used by management for its operational decision-making and allows investors to see our results "through the eyes" of management. We further believe that providing this information assists our investors in understanding our operating performance and the methodology used by management to evaluate and measure such performance.
