Annual Results

Interventional medicine boost BTG's revenue growth

16 May 2017 07:24

BTG announced that its interventional medicine was its largest and fastest growing revenue contributor in the year to 31 March 2017.

The division delivered 15% organic CER growth (25% CER growth including Galil Medical).

BTG reported adjusted operating profit up 13% at CER in 2016/17 and a strong financial position with £155.5m of cash at 31 March 2017.

IFRS operating profit and IFRS EPS were impacted by previously announced legal settlement (£28m).

Translation benefits from weaker sterling were offset by hedging losses on forward contracts (£25.2m), which impacted the year's adjusted and IFRS EPS.
