    • Acquired Guidant's vascular business, providing Abbott with the current market-leading drug-eluting stent, XIENCE V(TM), and the world's first bioabsorbable drug-eluting stent to enter clinical trials.

    The Deal's readers rated Abbott best on all four of its award criteria: choice of targets and strategy; price paid (or received) compared to value; execution, including integration; and overall quality of the deal team. Companies considered for the survey have a market capitalization of $5 billion or more as of June 30, 2009, and closed the highest number and dollar value of acquisitions and divestitures in the past three and a half years.
