Abbott to Become No. 1 Pharmaceutical Company in India with Acquisition of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions Business
Date:5/20/2010

0 percent of Abbott's pharmaceutical sales today are in emerging markets.

"We have assembled a market-leading branded generics portfolio tailored to the unique needs of emerging markets, strongly positioning Abbott to meet the current and future geographic and market dynamics in pharmaceuticals," said Olivier Bohuon, executive vice president, global pharmaceuticals, Abbott. "Piramal has built a reputation for high-quality, well-known and trusted pharmaceutical brands. We look forward to welcoming the accomplished staff of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions business to Abbott."

Pharmaceutical sales in emerging markets are expected to grow at three times the rate of developed markets and account for 70 percent of pharmaceutical growth over the next several years. This explosive growth is occurring as demographics, rising incomes, modernization of health systems and an increase in the treatment of chronic disease create greater demand for medicines.

Financial Highlights

Under terms of the agreement, Abbott will purchase the assets of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions business for a $2.12 billion up-front payment with payments of $400 million annually for the next four years, beginning in 2011. The transaction will not impact Abbott's ongoing earnings per share guidance in 2010. Abbott plans to fund the transaction with cash on the balance sheet.

This transaction is subject to shareholder approval of Piramal Healthcare Limited and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in the second half of 2010. This transaction is being conducted by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Abbott, resulting in full ownership of the assets of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions business (Domestic Formulations).
