Note: Operational growth reflects percentage change over the prior year excluding the impact of exchange rates. In order to compute results excluding the impact of exchange rates, current year U.S. dollar sales are multiplied or divided, as appropriate, by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then those amounts are multiplied or divided, as appropriate, by the prior year average foreign exchange rates.

 

Second-quarter 2016 worldwide sales of $5.3 billion increased 3.2 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 3.2 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 6.4 percent on an operational basis.

International sales increased 2.8 percent on a reported basis and 7.5 percent on an operational basis in the second quarter. International operational growth was led by strong performance across all of Abbott's business segments.

Emerging market sales increased 1.1 percent on a reported basis and 8.5 percent on an operational basis in the second quarter. Excluding the impact of Venezuelan operations, emerging market sales would have increased 4.8 percent on a reported basis and 12.4 percent on an operational basis.

Worldwide Pediatric Nutrition sales increased 0.4 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 3.0 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 3.4 percent on an operational basis. Sales growth in the quarter was led by above-market growth in the U.S. with continued uptake of recently launched products, including infant and toddler non-GMO products, as well as strong performance across several countries in Latin America and Asia.

Worldwide Adult Nutrition sales increased 2.6 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 2.9 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 5.5 percent on an operational basis. Operational sales growth in the quarter was led by strong growth of Abbott's complete and balanced nutrition brand, Ensure®, and double-digit growth internationally.

Worldwide Diagnostics sales increased 4.1 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 1.9 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 6.0 percent on an operational basis.

Core Laboratory Diagnostics sales increased 3.4 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 2.2 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 5.6 percent on an operational basis. Operational sales growth in the quarter was led by double-digit growth in emerging markets. During the quarter, Abbott launched AlinIQ, a first-of-its-kind professional services and informatics solution that enhances diagnostic laboratory productivity and flexibility in managing data throughout hospital networks.

Molecular Diagnostics sales increased 2.5 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 1.3 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 3.8 percent on an operational basis. As expected, continued strong growth in Abbott's infectious disease testing business was partially offset by the planned scale down of its genetics business.

Point of Care Diagnostics sales increased 11.5 percent on a reported and operational basis. Double-digit sales growth was led by continued adoption of Abbott's i-STAT® handheld system in the U.S. and international markets.

Excluding the impact of Venezuelan operations, Established Pharmaceuticals sales would have increased 4.6 percent on a reported basis and 14.1 percent on an operational basis.

Key Emerging Markets include India, Russia, Brazil and China, along with several additional emerging markets that represent the most attractive long-term growth opportunities for Abbott's branded generics product portfolio. Sales in these key geographies increased 3.9 percent on a reported basis and 15.9 percent on an operational basis. Operational sales growth was led by continued strong growth in India, which comprises more than 20 percent of Abbott's Established Pharmaceuticals sales, as well as Russia, China and several countries throughout Latin America.

Worldwide Medical Devices sales increased 6.4 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 0.4 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 6.8 percent on an operational basis.

Worldwide sales of Vascular products increased 8.3 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 0.6 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 8.9 percent on an operational basis. Sales were favorably impacted by the resolution of previously disputed third-party royalty revenue related to the prior year. Excluding this impact, worldwide sales of Vascular products would have increased 4.1 percent on a reported basis and 4.7 percent on an operational basis, and U.S. sales would have increased 6.2 percent on a reported and operational basis.

Sales growth in Vascular products was led by double-digit growth of MitraClip®, Abbott's device for the treatment of mitral regurgitation, as Abbott continues to build the market for this first-in-class device. Double-digit operational sales growth in Abbott's Endovascular business was driven by vessel closure products and Supera®, Abbott's unique peripheral stent for the treatment of blockages in the leg. In July, the U.S. FDA approved Abbott's Absorb bioresorbable stent, the only fully dissolving heart stent. Absorb offers a unique benefit to patients, as it is designed to treat coronary artery disease like a metallic stent, but then disappears after the artery is healed, leaving no metal behind to restrict natural vessel motion.

Worldwide Diabetes Care sales increased 1.7 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including an unfavorable 1.1 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 2.8 percent on an operational basis. International sales growth was driven by continued consumer uptake of FreeStyle® Libre, Abbott's revolutionary Flash Glucose Monitoring System that eliminates routine finger sticks and finger-stick calibration. In the U.S., sales were impacted by competitive and market dynamics. 

Worldwide Medical Optics sales increased 6.2 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter, including a favorable 0.8 percent effect of foreign exchange, and increased 5.4 percent on an operational basis. Operational sales growth was driven by continued market uptake of cataract products in the premium intraocular lens segment. In July, Abbott received U.S. FDA approval for the TECNIS Symfony intraocular lenses, the first and only lenses in the U.S. that provide a full range of continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery.

 

ABBOTT'S FULL-YEAR EARNINGS-PER-SHARE GUIDANCE

Abbott projects earnings per share from continuing operations under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) of $1.26 to $1.36 for the full year 2016.

Abbott forecasts net specified items for the full year 2016 of approximately $0.88 per share. Specified items include intangible amortization expense, the impact of the Venezuelan currency devaluation in the first quarter, expenses associated with acquisitions, including bridge facility fees, and charges related to cost reduction initiatives and other expenses, partially offset by the favorable resolution of various tax positions from prior years.  

Excluding specified items, projected earnings per share from continuing operations remains unchanged at $2.14 to $2.24 for the full year 2016. 

 

ABBOTT DECLARES 370TH QUARTERLY DIVIDEND

On June 10, 2016, the board of directors of Abbott declared the company's quarterly dividend of $0.26 per share. Abbott's cash dividend is payable Aug. 15, 2016, to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 15, 2016.

Abbott is a member of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index, which tracks companies that have annually increased their dividend for 25 consecutive years.
