NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

NOTE A – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Boston Scientific Corporation have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X, and they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. When used in this report, the terms, "we," "us," "our," and "the Company" mean Boston Scientific Corporation and its divisions and subsidiaries. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. Accordingly, our unaudited consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in Item 8 of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

In the first quarter of 2022, we reorganized our operational structure in order to strengthen our category leadership in the markets we serve and, in particular, benefit our Cardiology customers and patients. Following the reorganization, we have aggregated our core businesses into two reportable segments: MedSurg and Cardiovascular, each of which generates revenues from the sale of medical devices. We have revised prior periods to conform to the current year presentation.

Amounts reported in millions within this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are computed based on the amounts in thousands. As a result, the sum of the components may not equal the total amount reported in millions due to rounding. Certain columns and rows within tables may not add due to the use of rounded numbers. Percentages presented are calculated from the underlying unrounded amounts.
Subsequent Events
We evaluate events occurring after the date of our accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheet for potential recognition or disclosure in our financial statements. Those items requiring recognition in the financial statements have been recorded and disclosed accordingly.
Those items requiring disclosure (non-recognized subsequent events) in the financial statements have been disclosed accordingly. Refer to Note H – Commitments and Contingencies and Note I – Stockholders' Equity for further details.

NOTE B – ACQUISITIONS, DIVESTITURES AND STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS

Our accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the operating results for acquired entities from the respective dates of acquisition. We have not presented supplemental pro forma financial information for completed acquisitions or divestitures given their results are not material to our accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements. Further, transaction costs were immaterial to our accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements and were expensed as incurred.

On June 15, 2022, we announced our entry into a definitive agreement with Synergy Innovation Co, Ltd, to purchase its majority stake of M.I. Tech Co., Ltd., (M.I. Tech), a publicly traded Korean manufacturer and distributor of medical devices for endoscopic and urological procedures. The agreement, whereby we will purchase approximately 64 percent of the outstanding shares of M.I. Tech, consists of a purchase price of KRW 291.2 billion or approximately $230 million at foreign currency exchange rates locked into at the time of the agreement via forward currency contracts. The acquisition is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2022, subject to customary closing conditions. The M.I. Tech stent portfolio complements our existing Endoscopy portfolio which will provide physicians with more treatment options to meet specific patient needs.

2022 Acquisition

On February 14, 2022, we completed our acquisition of Baylis Medical Company Inc. (Baylis Medical), a privately-held company which has developed the radiofrequency (RF) NRG and VersaCrossTransseptal Platforms as well as a family of guidewires, sheaths and dilators used to support left heart access, which expands our electrophysiology and structural heart product portfolios. The transaction consisted of an upfront cash payment of $1.463 billion, net of cash acquired, subject to closing adjustments. We are integrating the Baylis Medical business into our Cardiology division.

2021 Acquisitions

On March 1, 2021, we completed the acquisition of Preventice Solutions, Inc. (Preventice), a privately-held company which offers a full portfolio of mobile cardiac health solutions and services, ranging from ambulatory cardiac monitors, to cardiac event monitors and mobile cardiac telemetry. The transaction consisted of an upfront cash payment of $925 million and up to an additional $300 million in a potential commercial milestone payment. We had been an investor in Preventice since 2015 and held an equity stake of approximately 22 percent immediately prior to the acquisition date. We remeasured the fair value of our previously-held investment based on the allocation of the purchase price according to priority of equity interests, which resulted in a $195 million gain recognized within Other, net during the first quarter of 2021. The transaction price for the remaining stake consisted of an upfront cash payment of $706 million, net of cash acquired, and an additional revenue-based milestone payment of $216 million made during the second quarter of 2022. The Preventice business is being managed by our Cardiology division.

On August 6, 2021, we completed our acquisition of the remaining shares of Farapulse, Inc. (Farapulse), a privately-held company that developed a non-thermal ablation system for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) and other cardiac arrhythmias. The transaction consisted of an upfront cash payment of $450 million, up to $125 million upon achievement of certain clinical and regulatory milestones and additional revenue-based payments over the next three years. We had been an investor in Farapulse since 2014 and held an equity stake of approximately 27 percent immediately prior to the acquisition date. We remeasured the fair value of our previously-held investment based on the allocation of the purchase price according to priority of equity interests which resulted in a $222 million gain recognized within Other, net during the third quarter of 2021. The transaction price for the remaining stake consisted of an upfront cash payment of $268 million, net of cash acquired, $114 million of milestone and revenue-based payments made to date, as well as approximately $120 million in future revenue-based milestone payments. The Farapulse business is being integrated into our Cardiology division.

On September 1, 2021, we completed our acquisition of the global surgical business of Lumenis LTD. (Lumenis), a privately-held company that develops and commercializes energy-based medical solutions, including innovative laser systems, fibers and accessories used for urology and otolaryngology procedures. The transaction consisted of an upfront cash payment of $1.032 billion, net of cash acquired. The Lumenis business is being integrated into our Urology and Pelvic Health division.

Purchase Price Allocation

We accounted for these acquisitions as business combinations, and in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 805, we recorded the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at their respective fair values as of the acquisition date. The final purchase prices were comprised of the following components:

Goodwill was primarily established due to synergies expected to be gained from leveraging our existing operations, as well as revenue and cash flow projections associated with future technologies, and is not deductible for tax purposes.

During the first nine months of 2022, we recorded certain measurement period adjustments related to our prior year acquisition of the surgical business of Lumenis. We recorded an accrued income tax liability within Other non-current liabilities within our accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheets of $183 million related to uncertain tax positions assumed in connection with the acquisition. We were indemnified by the sellers for the majority of such tax obligations and recognized a corresponding indemnification asset of $177 million at the acquisition date within Other non-current assets within our accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheets. Subsequent to the acquisition date, interest and penalties accrued on the tax liability are being recorded within Income tax expense (benefit) and corresponding adjustments to the indemnification asset are being recorded in Other, net within our accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of operations. The outcome of these matters is subject to uncertainty and ultimately, the amount of tax due and the related indemnification reimbursement we receive will be dependent on the outcome of tax return examinations by relevant authorities. Refer to Note F – Supplemental Balance Sheet Information for further details regarding our indemnification asset.

2021 Divestiture

On March 1, 2021, we completed the divestiture of the Specialty Pharmaceuticals business to Stark International Lux S.A.R.L., and SERB SAS, affiliates of SERB, a European specialty pharmaceutical group, for a purchase price of approximately $800 million, subject to certain adjustments including cash on hand at the closing of the transaction. The agreement included the transfer of five facilities and approximately 280 employees globally.

During the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, we recognized a Gain on disposal of businesses and assets associated with the transaction within our accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of operations. Refer to Note C – Assets and Liabilities Held for Sale to our audited financial statements contained in Item 8 of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for additional information.

Contingent Consideration

Changes in the fair value of our contingent consideration liability during the first nine months of 2022 were as follows:

(in millions)
Balance as of December 31, 2021$486 
Contingent consideration net expense (benefit)68 
Contingent consideration payments(371)
Balance as of September 30, 2022$182 

The payments made during the first nine months of 2022 were primarily related to our prior year acquisitions of Farapulse and Preventice. As of September 30, 2022, the maximum amount of future contingent consideration (undiscounted) that we could be required to pay associated with our completed acquisitions was approximately $400 million. Refer to Note B – Acquisitions and Strategic Investments to our audited financial statements contained in Item 8 of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for additional information.

The recurring Level 3 fair value measurements of our contingent consideration liability that we expect to be required to settle include the following significant unobservable inputs:
Contingent Consideration LiabilityFair Value as of September 30, 2022Valuation TechniqueUnobservable InputRange
Weighted Average(1)
R&D, Regulatory and Commercialization-based Milestones$48 millionDiscounted Cash FlowDiscount Rate1%-2%1%

Revenue-based Payments$134 millionDiscounted Cash FlowDiscount Rate6%-14%7%
Probability of Payment100%100%
Projected Year of Payment2023-20242023
(1)    Unobservable inputs were weighted by the relative fair value of the contingent consideration liability. For projected year of payment, the amount represents the median of the inputs and is not a weighted average.

Projected contingent payment amounts related to research and development (R&D), regulatory and commercialization-based milestones and revenue-based payments are discounted back to the current period, primarily using a discounted cash flow model. Significant increases or decreases in projected revenues, probabilities of payment, discount rates or the time until payment is made would have resulted in a significantly lower or higher fair value measurement as of September 30, 2022.

Strategic Investments

The aggregate carrying amount of our strategic investments was comprised of the following:
