  • Abbott confirms double-digit earnings-per-share growth outlook for 2009

    Abbott is confirming previously issued earnings-per-share guidance for the full-year 2009 of $3.65 to $3.70 under both Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP, or adjusted basis. The midpoint of this 2009 guidance range reflects double-digit growth over 2008 earnings per share.

    For the first time, Abbott is providing earnings-per-share guidance for the second-quarter 2009 of $0.87 to $0.89, excluding specified items. Abbott forecasts net specified items for the second-quarter 2009 of approximately $0.07 per share, primarily associated with previously announced acquisitions and cost reduction initiatives. Including these specified items, projected earnings per share under GAAP would be $0.80 to $0.82 for the second-quarter 2009.

The cash dividend is payable May 15, 2009, to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 15, 2009. This marks the 341st consecutive dividend paid by Abbott since 1924.
