ABBOTT PARK, Ill., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

  • Ongoing diluted EPS was $0.54 in the second quarter, representing growth of 17.4 percent, and above the previous guidance range of $0.50 to $0.52; reported diluted EPS from continuing operations under GAAP was $0.30.  

  • Abbott is raising its full-year 2014 ongoing EPS guidance to $2.19 to $2.29 from $2.16 to $2.26, reflecting double-digit growth at the mid-point of the range. Projected full-year 2014 EPS from continuing operations under GAAP is $1.16 to $1.26. Guidance for both ongoing and GAAP EPS from continuing operations includes the developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business, which is expected to be reported as discontinued operations starting in the third quarter of 2014.

  • Second-quarter worldwide sales increased 3.0 percent on an operational basis and 1.9 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 1.1 percent effect of foreign exchange.

  • On July 14, 2014, Abbott announced that it will sell its developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business to Mylan. This transaction is expected to positively impact Abbott's 2015 sales and earnings-per-share growth rates as the company focuses its branded generics pharmaceuticals business on emerging markets.

  • In the second quarter, Abbott announced agreements to acquire Latin American pharmaceutical company, CFR Pharmaceuticals and Russian pharmaceutical company, Veropharm. CFR Pharmaceuticals will more than double Abbott's branded generics presence in Latin America. Through the acquisition of Veropharm, Abbott will immediately establish a larger footprint and manufacturing presence in Russia.

  • On July 10, 2014, Abbott and Fonterra announced a strategic alliance to develop a proposed dairy farm hub in China, establishing direct ownership and operation of dairies and production of milk in China.  

"We're ahead of our expectations through the first half of the year and are raising our EPS guidance range as we continue to shape the company for long-term growth," said Miles D. White, chairman and chief executive officer, Abbott.

Note: Operational growth reflects percentage change over the prior year excluding the impact of exchange rates.

Second-quarter 2014 worldwide sales of $5.6 billion increased 3.0 percent on an operational basis, representing sequential improvement versus the first quarter, and Abbott is on track for sales growth acceleration in the second half of 2014. Sales increased 1.9 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 1.1 percent effect of foreign exchange.

International sales, which comprise more than 70 percent of total Abbott sales, increased 4.2 percent on an operational basis and 2.7 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter.

Sales in emerging markets, which comprise more than 40 percent of total Abbott sales, increased 7.7 percent on an operational basis and 4.1 percent on a reported basis in the second quarter. The August 2013 sales disruption in International Nutrition is estimated to have reduced Abbott's sales growth in emerging markets by approximately 1.8 percentage points.

Abbott launched several new products in the second quarter. Highlights include the TECNIS® Symfony extended range of vision intraocular lens (IOL) in Europe and a new diabetes test on the ARCHITECT platform in the U.S. In addition, in its Nutrition business, Abbott opened two new manufacturing facilities and launched several new products to meet increasing global demand for pediatric and adult nutrition.

Worldwide Nutrition sales increased 3.1 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis and 1.6 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 1.5 percent effect of foreign exchange. This business continues to expect full-year operating margin expansion.  

Worldwide Pediatric Nutrition sales increased 1.1 percent on an operational basis and decreased 0.5 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including an unfavorable 1.6 percent effect of foreign exchange. The August 2013 sales disruption in International Nutrition is estimated to have impacted the year-over-year sales growth comparison in International Pediatric Nutrition by approximately $40 million in the second quarter. Abbott is recapturing share in the affected markets, launched several new Pediatric Nutrition products during the quarter and opened a new state-of-the-art nutrition manufacturing plant in China. This plant will manufacture new Similac® QINTI infant formula in Abbott's innovative packaging.  

Worldwide Adult Nutrition sales increased 5.7 percent on an operational basis and 4.4 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including an unfavorable 1.3 percent effect of foreign exchange. Sales growth in the quarter was led by strong growth of Ensure® and double-digit growth in emerging markets. Abbott continues to shape and grow priority international markets as it launches new products in 2014, including the recent launch of a new adult brand, Enevo in Japan, Abbott's largest adult nutrition market outside of the U.S. Abbott also opened a new liquid nutrition manufacturing plant in the U.S. during the second quarter to meet increasing global demand for its adult nutrition brands.

On July 10, 2014, Abbott and Fonterra announced a strategic alliance to develop a proposed dairy farm hub in China. The strategic alliance will establish direct ownership and operation of dairies and production of milk in China. This alliance will leverage Fonterra's expertise in dairy nutrition and farming in China and Abbott's continued commitment to business development in China.

Worldwide Diagnostics sales increased 5.5 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis and 4.8 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 0.7 percent effect of foreign exchange. This business continues to invest in the development of several next-generation diagnostic platforms across all of its business units that are designed to positively impact patient care, improve service to customers, enhance laboratory productivity and reduce costs.

Core Laboratory Diagnostics sales increased 6.8 percent in the quarter on an operational basis and 5.8 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 1.0 percent effect of foreign exchange. U.S. sales growth of 11.3 percent was primarily driven by continued market share gains as customers select Abbott's integrated and flexible solutions to manage large testing volumes and increase operational efficiencies. International sales growth of 5.8 percent on an operational basis was driven by continued strong growth in emerging markets. Also in the second quarter, Abbott launched a new test on its ARCHITECT platform in the U.S. to quickly and accurately diagnose, monitor and identify people at risk for diabetes.  

Molecular Diagnostics sales decreased 2.8 percent in the quarter on an operational basis, impacted by the timing of tenders in the infectious disease business in several emerging markets, which are expected to drive higher growth in the second half of 2014. Sales decreased 2.1 percent on a reported basis, including a favorable 0.7 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Established Pharmaceuticals sales increased 2.3 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis, representing sequential improvement versus the first quarter. Sales decreased 0.1 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 2.4 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Developed and Other Markets include developed markets, such as Western Europe and Japan, and other emerging markets globally. Sales in these geographies were in line with expectations and decreased 4.7 percent in the quarter on an operational basis and 4.4 percent on a reported basis, including a favorable 0.3 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Key Emerging Markets include India, Russia, Brazil and China, along with 10 additional emerging markets that represent the most attractive long-term growth opportunities for Abbott's branded generics product portfolio. Sales in these geographies increased 9.7 percent on an operational basis in the quarter driven by double-digit sales growth in India, Brazil and China. Sales increased 4.4 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 5.3 percent effect of foreign exchange. Based upon current exchange rates, this business would have an improved comparison from the impact of foreign exchange in Key Emerging Markets in the second half of 2014. 

Abbott announced several transactions in the quarter in its Established Pharmaceuticals business to continue to shape Abbott for long-term growth. On July 14, 2014, Abbott announced that it will sell its developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business to Mylan. This transaction is expected to positively impact Abbott's 2015 sales and earnings-per-share growth rates as the company focuses its branded generics pharmaceuticals business entirely on emerging markets. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.

Abbott also announced two acquisitions in the quarter in its Established Pharmaceuticals business. On May 16, 2014, Abbott announced an agreement to acquire Latin American pharmaceutical company CFR Pharmaceuticals. This acquisition more than doubles Abbott's branded generics presence in Latin America and immediately establishes Abbott among the top 10 pharmaceutical companies in the region. Abbott expects to complete the acquisition of CFR Pharmaceuticals by the end of the third quarter of 2014. Additionally, on June 23, 2014, Abbott announced an agreement to acquire Veropharm, a leading Russian pharmaceutical company, which would allow Abbott to immediately establish a larger footprint and manufacturing presence in Russia. Abbott expects to complete the acquisition of Veropharm in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Worldwide Medical Devices sales increased 0.8 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis and 1.2 percent on a reported basis, including a favorable 0.4 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Worldwide sales of Vascular products increased 1.4 percent in the quarter on an operational basis and 1.9 percent on a reported basis, including a favorable 0.5 percent effect of foreign exchange. International sales comprise approximately 65 percent of the total Vascular business and increased 3.4 percent operationally, primarily driven by sales growth of MitraClip®, Abbott's first-in-class device for the treatment of mitral regurgitation, and double-digit growth in Endovascular products. In addition, data presented at international medical meetings continue to reinforce strong clinical results of the Absorb Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold in a broad range of patients. In the U.S., strong sales growth in Endovascular products, including sales of the Supera® peripheral stent, was offset by a decline in drug-eluting stent (DES) sales due to a year-over-year decline in the DES market and market share.

Worldwide Diabetes Care sales decreased 10.1 percent in the quarter on an operational basis and 9.8 percent on a reported basis, including a favorable 0.3 percent effect of foreign exchange. As expected, U.S. sales continue to be impacted by CMS reimbursement reductions and market dynamics. Outside of the U.S., Abbott is driving growth in emerging markets and expects to bring its FreeStyle® Libre next-generation glucose sensing technology to Europe in the second half of 2014.

Worldwide Medical Optics sales increased 12.2 percent in the quarter on an operational and a reported basis. Sales of cataract products, which represent nearly 70 percent of Medical Optics sales, increased strong double digits, outpacing the growth of the global cataract market. This performance was driven by continued share gains of recently launched products, including TECNIS OptiBlue and TECNIS OptiBlue Preloaded IOLs in Japan and TECNIS Toric IOL in the U.S. and Japan, as well as further penetration of Abbott's Catalys® Precision Laser System for cataract surgery. Abbott recently received CE Mark for TECNIS Symfony extended range of vision IOL, which is a new premium lens that is intended to provide patients a continuous range of vision, including far, intermediate and near distances, with reduced incidence of halo and glare.

Abbott raises its full-year 2014 earnings-per-share guidance range

Abbott is raising its full-year 2014 ongoing earnings-per-share guidance range to $2.19 to $2.29 from $2.16 to $2.26, representing double-digit growth at the mid-point of the range. This guidance includes the developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business.

Abbott continues to forecast net specified items for the full year 2014 of $1.03 per share. Specified items include intangible amortization expense and charges associated with cost reduction initiatives, as well as tax expense associated with a one-time repatriation of 2014 ex-U.S. earnings, partially offset by a net favorable adjustment to tax expense related to the resolution of various tax positions from previous years. The forecast for specified items excludes deal and other expenses, to be provided at a future date, related to the recently announced acquisitions and sale of the developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business.

Including net specified items and prior to the reclassification of the developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business as discontinued operations starting in the third quarter of 2014, projected earnings per share from continuing operations under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) would be $1.16 to $1.26 for the full year 2014.

Abbott declares 362nd quarterly dividend  

On June 13, 2014, the board of directors of Abbott declared the company's quarterly dividend of $0.22 per share. Abbott's cash dividend is payable Aug. 15, 2014, to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 15, 2014.

Abbott is a member of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index, which tracks companies that have annually increased their dividend for 25 consecutive years.
