“We are off to a very strong start to our fiscal 2016,” said George Barrett, chairman and chief executive officer of Cardinal Health. “We reported outstanding progress on both the top and bottom lines, reflecting strong execution and alignment with the needs of our customers in an evolving market. Our Pharmaceutical segment continued its momentum into the first quarter, and the Medical segment strengthened its position in strategically critical areas. Subsequent to the quarter end, we closed the Cordis acquisition. Our team did an outstanding job meeting our expected timeline for closing, positioning us to strengthen our offerings in the interventional cardiovascular space and reinforce our physician preference product strategy."

Barrett noted that, “With this strong first quarter behind us and greater line of sight to certain drivers for the year, we are raising our fiscal 2016 non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance range to $5.15 to $5.35 from a prior range of $4.85 to $5.05. This new range represents an 18 to 22 percent growth rate compared to fiscal 2015.”

Pharmaceutical Segment

First-quarter revenue for the Pharmaceutical segment increased

19 percent

$25.1 billion

due to growth from existing and new customers and, to a lesser extent, contributions from acquisitions. Segment profit for the quarter increased

46 percent

$657 million

due to strong performance under the company's generics program, net growth from existing and new customers, and contribution from acquisitions.

Medical Segment

First-quarter revenue for the Medical segment increased

$2.9 billion

due to growth in Cardinal Health-branded products and the Cardinal Health at Home platform. Although segment profit for the quarter decreased, the performance was better than expected. The

11 percent

decline to

$101 million

was primarily due to the company's Canada business, including some unfavorable impact of foreign currency. Included in the prior year results for Canada is a previously disclosed, one-time benefit resulting from winding down the CareFusion contract.
