Abbott Annual Meeting Highlights Outstanding 2007 Results, International Growth and Near-Term Pipeline
Date:4/25/2008

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., April 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott's broad portfolio of businesses and expanding global operations generated outstanding 2007 results, and its new product pipeline provides a foundation for continued growth as demonstrated by the company's strong first-quarter performance, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Miles D. White told shareholders today at the company's annual meeting.

"2007 was an outstanding year for Abbott across all of our major businesses and our strong momentum has carried into 2008," said Mr. White. "We delivered another year of strong sales and profitability. We expanded our business in important emerging economies such as China, India, Russia and Latin America. And we were highly productive in building our pipeline, providing the basis for a steady new product stream and continued future success."
