The Cardiac and Vascular Group (CVG) includes the Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure (CRHF) and Coronary & Structural Heart (CSH) divisions, as well as the Aortic & Peripheral Vascular (APV) division, which includes businesses from legacy Medtronic and businesses added through the January 2015 acquisition of Covidien.

The Minimally Invasive Therapies Group (MITG) includes the Surgical Solutions and the Patient Monitoring & Recovery (PMR) divisions. MITG contains most of the legacy Covidien business that was acquired in late January 2015 and therefore was not reported as part of legacy Medtronic in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015.

The Restorative Therapies Group (RTG) includes the Spine, Neuromodulation, and Surgical Technologies divisions, as well as the Neurovascular division, which was added through the January 2015 acquisition of Covidien.

Group results were driven by strong growth in Neurovascular and Surgical Technologies, offsetting declines in Spine and Neuromodulation.

Diabetes Group worldwide revenue of $474 million increased 11 percent, or 6 percent as reported. The group had strong, broad-based performance across all three divisions.
The company today provided its revenue outlook and EPS guidance. The company expects revenue growth for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 to be in the range of 5.0 to 5.5 percent on a constant currency basis, which is consistent with its prior outlook of revenue growth in the second half of fiscal year 2016 being in the upper-half of the company's mid-single digit baseline goal on a comparable, constant currency basis. The company expects a negative impact from foreign currency in the fourth quarter of approximately $180 to $220 million based on current exchange rates. In addition, the company reiterated its diluted non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) guidance for fiscal year 2016. The company expects fiscal year 2016 diluted non-GAAP EPS in the range of $4.36 to $4.40, which continues to include an expected $0.45 to $0.50 negative foreign currency impact based on current exchange rates.
