Looking ahead to fiscal year 2019, Medtronic maintained its outlook for adjusted earnings in a range of $5.10 to $5.15 per share. The company noted that if recent exchange rates hold for the remainder of the fiscal year, foreign exchange would have a neutral impact on the company's fiscal year 2019 earnings per share, implying a constant currency earnings per share growth forecast of 9 to 10 percent

The company raised its forecast for full-year organic revenue growth from a range of 4.5 to 5.0 percent to a range of 5.0 to 5.5 percent. If recent exchange rates hold for the remainder of the fiscal year, the company's fiscal year 2019 revenue would be negatively affected by approximately $420 million to $520 million.

The Street expects earnings of $5.12 per share for the year on revenues of $30.46 billion.
