Abbott Reports 16 Percent Earnings Growth in First Quarter; Confirms Double-Digit Earnings Growth Outlook for 2009
Date:4/15/2009

are now forecasting an earlier-than-expected FDA submission for the fixed-dosed combination of TRILIPIX and CRESTOR. This submission is now expected in the third quarter of this year.

Q2) What drove the 15.6 percent operational increase in global medical products sales and strong global nutritional products sales?

A2) Medical products operational sales increased 15.6 percent, excluding 6.8 percent negative exchange. Strength in the quarter reflects more than 40 percent growth in worldwide vascular sales and continued double-digit growth in the molecular business.

Vascular sales were driven by the continued successful uptake of XIENCE V. We have seen continued steady improvement in the U.S. DES market, with DES penetration in the mid-70s, up more than 10 percentage points from the first quarter of last year. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) volumes were up in the low-single digits from the first quarter of last year.

Worldwide nutritional products operational sales increased nearly 11 percent, excluding 4.2 percent negative exchange. This reflects continued strong growth in key emerging markets, including Latin America and Asia, where Abbott recently opened a new 500,000 square foot state-of-the-art nutritionals manufacturing facility in Singapore. This plant will support the growing demand in the Asian markets. U.S. nutritional sales increased 4.2 percent.
