ABBOTT PARK, Ill., July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

  • Second-quarter worldwide sales of $7.8 billion increased 17.0 percent on a reported basis and 8.0 percent on an organic* basis.
  • Reported diluted EPS from continuing operations under GAAP was $0.40 in the second quarter.
  • Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations, which excludes specified items, was $0.73, above Abbott's previous guidance range.
  • Abbott is raising its full-year 2018 EPS guidance range, which continues to reflect strong double-digit growth. Abbott projects full-year diluted EPS from continuing operations on a GAAP basis of $1.34 to $1.40. Projected full-year adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations is now $2.85 to $2.91.
  • In May, Abbott received approval from the U.S. FDA for XIENCE Sierra, the newest generation of its gold-standard coronary stent system, which offers design and technology advances to provide an easier implant and greater ability to treat complex blockages. During the second quarter, XIENCE Sierra also received national reimbursement in Japan to treat people with coronary artery disease.
  • In May, Abbott announced U.S. FDA clearance of Advisor HD Grid Mapping Catheter, Sensor Enabled, which creates highly detailed maps of the heart and expands Abbott's leading electrophysiology product portfolio.
  • In July, Abbott received U.S. FDA approval for a next-generation version of its leading MitraClip® heart valve repair device. This new version includes design advancements that simplify the minimally invasive procedure and enable more patients to be treated with MitraClip.

"All four of our businesses exceeded expectations and contributed to strong growth overall," said Miles D. White, chairman and chief executive officer, Abbott. "We forecast continued strong performance and are raising our full-year outlook despite recent currency shifts."

SECOND-QUARTER BUSINESS OVERVIEW
Note: Management believes that measuring sales growth rates on an organic basis is an appropriate way for investors to best understand the underlying performance of the business.

Organic sales growth:

  • Excludes prior year results for the Abbott Medical Optics (AMO) and St. Jude Medical vascular closure businesses, which were divested during the first quarter 2017;
  • Excludes the current and prior year results for Rapid Diagnostics, which reflect results for Alere Inc., which was acquired on Oct. 3, 2017; and
  • Excludes the impact of foreign exchange.

Following are sales by business segment and commentary for the second quarter and first half 2018:

Worldwide Medical Devices sales increased 11.3 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter. On an organic basis, sales increased 8.2 percent. Refer to tables titled "Non-GAAP Reconciliation of Adjusted Historical Revenue" for a reconciliation of adjusted historical revenue.

Cardiovascular and Neuromodulation sales growth in the quarter was led by double-digit growth in Electrophysiology and Structural Heart.

In Electrophysiology, growth was led by strong performance in cardiac mapping and ablation as well as share gains from the recent U.S. launch of Abbott's Confirm Rx Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM), the world's first and only smartphone-compatible ICM designed to help physicians remotely identify cardiac arrhythmias. In May, Abbott announced U.S. FDA clearance of Advisor HD Grid Mapping Catheter, Sensor Enabled, which creates highly detailed maps of the heart and expands Abbott's leading electrophysiology product portfolio.

In Vascular, during the second quarter, Abbott received approval from the U.S. FDA for XIENCE Sierra, the newest generation of its gold-standard coronary stent system, which offers design and technology advances to provide an easier implant and greater ability to treat complex blockages. During the quarter, XIENCE Sierra also received national reimbursement in Japan to treat people with coronary artery disease.

Growth in Structural Heart was driven by several product areas across Abbott's broad portfolio, including AMPLATZER PFO Occluder and MitraClip, Abbott's market-leading device for the minimally invasive treatment of mitral regurgitation. In July, Abbott announced U.S. FDA approval for a next-generation version of MitraClip, with an enhanced design that provides even greater precision and accuracy.

In Diabetes Care, where sales increased 39.8 percent on a reported basis and 33.6 percent on an organic basis, growth was led by continued rapid market uptake of FreeStyle® Libre, Abbott's revolutionary sensor-based continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system, which removes the need for routine fingersticks1 for people with diabetes.
