Fiscal fourth quarter revenues of $4.784 billion grew 4.4% on a reported and currency-neutral basis.
BD’s COVID-19 testing sales totaled more than $440 million in the fourth fiscal quarter.
Fiscal fourth quarter GAAP EPS were $0.36. Non-GAAP EPS were $2.79.

Franklin Lakes, NJ (November 5, 2020)
- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today reported quarterly revenues of $4.784 billion for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020. This represents an increase of 4.4% over the prior-year period on both a reported and currency-neutral basis.

“I’m extremely proud of the team for their execution this quarter, as we delivered sequential improvement across each of our segments and successfully launched our Veritor SARS-CoV-2 assay. Collectively, we drove mid-single-digit revenue growth, building on the strength of our COVID-19 diagnostics revenues to overcome headwinds from both COVID-19 and Alaris,” said Tom Polen, CEO and president of BD. “Looking to fiscal 2021, BD remains focused on partnering with governments, health care systems, and health care professionals to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure access to rapid diagnostics and enable care for patients around the world. We are aligned on our priorities and steadfast in our commitments, including completing our Alaris 510(k) submission, investing in innovation and strategic growth initiatives, simplifying our processes and empowering our organization.”

Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2020 Operating Results
As reported, diluted earnings per share for the fiscal fourth quarter were $0.36, compared with $0.45 in the prior-year period, which represents a decrease of 20.0%. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $2.79, compared with $3.31 in the prior-year period, which represents a decrease of 15.7%, or 15.1% on a currency-neutral basis.

Segment Results
In the BD Medical segment, worldwide revenues for the fiscal fourth quarter of $2.318 billion decreased 4.9% from the prior-year period on both a reported and currency-neutral basis. The segment's results reflect the BD AlarisTM System remediation in the Medication Management Solutions unit and the impact of COVID-19 across the segment. The impact of COVID-19 is primarily reflected in the Medication Delivery Solutions, Diabetes Care and Medication Management Solutions units. These were partially offset by continued strong performance in the Pharmaceutical Systems unit. Within the Medication Delivery Solutions unit, the recovery in hospital admission rates and non-acute procedure volumes improved sequentially from the fiscal third quarter but remained below pre-COVID levels in the fiscal fourth quarter.
