Outlook and Guidance

The company today reiterated its fiscal year 2017 revenue outlook, EPS guidance, and free cash flow outlook.

The company continues to expect fiscal year 2017 revenue growth to be within the mid-single digit range on a constant currency, constant weeks basis, which is consistent with the company's long-term, mid-single digit constant currency revenue growth expectation. The company expects revenue growth for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 to be in the lower half of the mid-single digit range on a constant currency basis. While the impact from foreign currency exchange is fluid, if current exchange rates remain similar for the remainder of the fiscal year, the company's full year revenue and fourth fiscal quarter would both be negatively affected by approximately $20 million to $40 million.

The company continues to expect fiscal year 2017 diluted non-GAAP EPS growth to be in the double digits on a constant currency, constant week basis, which is consistent with the company's long-term, double digit constant currency EPS growth expectation. Taking into account the estimated 8 to 10 cent impact from the extra week in the first quarter last fiscal year, the estimated negative impact from foreign currency exchange of approximately 20 cents, and assuming current exchange rates remain similar for the rest of the year, this growth guidance implies fiscal year 2017 non-GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $4.55 to $4.60.

For fiscal year 2017, the company continues to expect free cash flow to be in the range of $5 billion to $6 billion.

"We remain confident in our ability to deliver mid-single digit constant currency revenue growth and double-digit constant currency EPS growth, not only in our current fiscal year, but also into the future," said Ishrak. "With our differentiated growth platforms and leadership in strong healthcare growth markets, we believe we are well positioned to create long-term, dependable value for our shareholders."
