For fiscal 2020, the company increased its adjusted earnings guidance to a new range of $5.57 to $5.63 per share from the prior range of $5.54 to $5.60 per share. This includes an estimated 9 cent negative impact from foreign exchange based on current rates.

"As we look forward, we're even more excited about what lies ahead, as the investments we've made in our pipeline begin to pay off by accelerating our revenue growth and creating value for our shareholders," said Omar Ishrak, Medtronic chairman and chief executive officer.
