ABBOTT PARK, Ill., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

  • Excluding foreign exchange, worldwide sales increased 4.2 percent. Reported sales increased 2.5 percent, including an unfavorable 1.7 percent effect of foreign exchange. Sales were driven by 8.4 percent operational sales growth in Nutrition, including 18.4 percent international growth, and 7.6 percent operational sales growth in Diagnostics.
  • Abbott continued to expand its presence in emerging markets across all business segments. Emerging market sales were $2.3 billion in the second quarter, an increase of 13.4 percent on an operational basis.
  • Second-quarter adjusted gross margin ratio of 55.0 percent exceeded previous expectations, driven by strong momentum in Nutrition and Diagnostics. The gross margin ratio under GAAP was 49.7 percent.
  • Abbott launched several new products and initiated new clinical trials in the second quarter. Highlights include 24 new product launches in Nutrition; the first FDA-approved hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping test; the initiation of a randomized clinical trial in Japan for Abbott's bioresorbable vascular scaffold, Absorb?; the approval of XIENCE Xpedition? in Japan; and the U.S. approval and launch of the TECNIS® Toric 1-Piece Intraocular Lens (IOL) for cataract patients with astigmatism.
  • On July 15, Abbott announced two acquisitions in its Medical Devices business: IDEV Technologies, which expands Abbott's endovascular portfolio, and OptiMedica, which provides an immediate entry point into the laser cataract surgery market.

"All things considered, including headwinds from foreign exchange and a mixed global economy, this was a good quarter," 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 2013 worldwide sales of $5.4 billion increased 4.2 percent on an operational basis, consistent with previous guidance, driven by 8.4 percent operational sales growth in Nutrition, including 18.4 percent international growth, and 7.6 percent operational sales growth in Diagnostics, including 9.1 percent international growth. On a reported basis, sales increased 2.5 percent, including an unfavorable 1.7 percent effect of foreign exchange. Unfavorable exchange was primarily driven by the further weakening of the Japanese yen versus the U.S. dollar.

Sales in emerging markets in the second quarter were $2.3 billion, representing more than 40 percent of Abbott's total sales, increasing 13.4 percent on an operational basis and 12.7 percent on a reported basis.

Worldwide Nutrition sales increased 8.4 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis and 7.9 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 0.5 percent impact of foreign exchange. Total emerging market sales, which represent more than 45 percent of total Nutrition sales, increased strong double digits in the quarter. Abbott's broad and diverse nutritional product portfolio is comprised of approximately 55 percent of sales in Pediatric Nutrition and 45 percent of sales in Adult Nutrition. 

Worldwide Pediatric Nutrition sales increased 9.3 percent on an operational basis and 9.6 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including a favorable 0.3 percent impact of foreign exchange. International Pediatric Nutrition sales grew 19.4 percent on an operational basis, driven by strong performance in emerging markets as this business continues to execute on geographic expansion initiatives and launch new product innovations. This growth was partially offset by a modest decline in U.S. Pediatric Nutrition largely driven by lower infant formula share in the WIC market segment.

Worldwide Adult Nutrition sales increased 7.2 percent on an operational basis and 5.7 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including an unfavorable 1.5 percent effect of foreign exchange. Sales growth in the quarter was led by global growth of Ensure® and continued expansion of the adult nutrition market where Abbott is the global leader. International Adult Nutrition sales grew 17.1 percent on an operational basis, driven by strong growth in emerging markets. U.S. Adult Nutrition sales growth was negatively impacted by Abbott's exit from certain non-core business lines as part of the division's margin improvement initiative.

Nutrition operating margin improved significantly versus the second quarter of 2012 and is ahead of schedule to reach its initial target of 20 percent of sales by 2015.

Abbott expects continued strong sales growth in worldwide Nutrition over the course of the year, driven primarily by geographic expansion initiatives in emerging markets and new product launches in both Pediatric and Adult Nutrition.

Worldwide Diagnostics sales increased 7.6 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis, including strong double-digit growth in Molecular and Point of Care Diagnostics. Reported sales increased 5.3 percent, including an unfavorable 2.3 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Core Laboratory Diagnostics sales increased 6.1 percent on an operational basis. Reported sales in Core Laboratory Diagnostics increased 3.5 percent, including an unfavorable 2.6 percent of foreign exchange. Operational sales growth was driven by 8.3 percent growth in international sales, driven by continued strong performance in key emerging markets, with sales in China and Russia growing more than 30 percent.

Molecular Diagnostics sales increased 13.0 percent on an operational basis, in line with expectations for accelerated growth. Reported worldwide Molecular sales increased 11.8 percent, including an unfavorable 1.2 percent effect of foreign exchange. Sales were driven by strong infectious disease growth, particularly in emerging markets due to the impact of new tenders, as well as the continued global expansion of the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene test for non-small-cell lung cancer. In June, Abbott received approval for the first FDA-approved hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping test in the U.S., which will enable physicians to create a personalized, targeted diagnosis and treatment path to improve clinical outcomes. This test will further expand Abbott's diagnostic testing options in infectious disease.

Point of Care Diagnostics also contributed to strong sales growth, increasing 15.5 percent on an operational basis and 15.4 percent on reported basis, reflecting minimal impact of foreign exchange. Abbott holds the leadership position in the U.S., where sales increased 15.5 percent driven by continued growth in the U.S. hospital segment and further penetration in physician office labs.

Abbott is continuing the development of six new system platforms across Core Laboratory, Molecular and Point of Care Diagnostics that are designed to improve service to our customers, enhance laboratory productivity, improve efficiency and reduce costs.

Established Pharmaceuticals sales increased 0.2 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis and decreased 2.3 percent on a reported basis, including an unfavorable 2.5 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Abbott is focused on expanding its presence and building local product portfolios in 14 Key Emerging Markets where access to quality healthcare is expanding. Sales in these Key Emerging Markets increased 4.4 percent on an operational basis and 2.5 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including an unfavorable 1.9 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Other Markets include developed markets, such as Western Europe and Japan, and other emerging markets globally. Sales in these geographies decreased 3.4 percent on an operational basis and 6.4 percent on a reported basis in the quarter, including an unfavorable 3.0 percent effect of foreign exchange. As expected, sales growth in developed markets continues to be negatively impacted by macroeconomic conditions, including European austerity measures.

Abbott expects Established Pharmaceuticals operational sales growth to improve over the course of the year, primarily driven by continued strong performance in Russia, along with acceleration of growth in India and Brazil due to portfolio expansion and execution of recent tender wins.

Worldwide Medical Devices sales increased 0.2 percent in the second quarter on an operational basis. Reported sales decreased 1.6 percent, including an unfavorable 1.8 percent effect of foreign exchange.

Worldwide Vascular sales were flat on an operational basis, consistent with previous guidance. Reported sales decreased 2.0 percent, including an unfavorable 1.9 percent effect of foreign exchange. International Vascular sales comprise more than 60 percent of total Vascular sales and increased 4.4 percent operationally, driven by new product introductions, including recent international launches of XIENCE Xpedition, Abbott's new drug-eluting stent, and Absorb, the world's first coronary bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS), as well as the XIENCE PRIME? small vessel launch in Japan. Sales increases in Endovascular and MitraClip®, Abbott's first-in-class device for the treatment of mitral regurgitation, also contributed to international sales growth in the quarter. U.S. Vascular sales were impacted by pricing pressure and a decline in procedures due to market conditions, partially offset by a year-over-year increase in market share as a result of XIENCE Xpedition launch. The overall Vascular sales growth rate in the second quarter improved when compared to the first-quarter 2013 growth rate.

Abbott expects worldwide sales growth to improve over the course of the year, with the continued uptake of XIENCE Xpedition in the U.S., the launch of XIENCE Xpedition in Japan, which was announced last week, and continued international penetration of new products, MitraClip and Absorb. On July 15, Abbott announced the acquisition of IDEV Technologies, which complements Abbott's existing portfolio of endovascular products with a best-in-class technology, designed to treat patients with peripheral artery disease. Abbott expects to complete the acquisition before the end of 2013. 

Worldwide Diabetes Care sales decreased 0.7 percent on an operational basis, consistent with previous guidance. Reported sales decreased 1.3 percent, including an unfavorable 0.6 percent effect of foreign exchange. Outside of the U.S., sales growth was driven by continued uptake of our FreeStyle InsuLinx® meter and share gains in emerging markets, including Saudi Arabia, where Abbott was recently selected as the exclusive supplier for the National Diabetes Awareness Program. As expected, U.S. sales were impacted by market pricing and reimbursement pressures, partially offset by continued share gains in the hospital and retail segments, where Abbott maintains a leadership position. Abbott continues to invest in a next-generation sensing technology that is expected to be initially launched in the European market in the second half of 2014.

Worldwide Medical Optics sales increased 2.2 percent on an operational basis, consistent with previous guidance. Reported sales declined 1.2 percent, including an unfavorable 3.4 percent effect of foreign exchange. Cataract sales, which represent 60 percent of total Medical Optics sales, increased high-single digits, outpacing the market, including continued double-digit growth in emerging markets. This growth was partially offset by a decline in refractive sales driven by continued soft market conditions. Abbott expects Medical Optics performance to improve in the second half of the year driven by new product introductions in the cataract segment, including the recent launch of TECNIS OptiBlue® IOL in Japan, which provides Abbott access to the largest segment of the Japan market, and TECNIS Toric IOL in the U.S. for patients with astigmatism, which enables Abbott to compete in the fastest-growing premium segment of the IOL market. The expected launch of TECNIS Preloaded IOL in the U.S. also will contribute to growth over the course of the year. On July 15, Abbott announced the acquisition of OptiMedica, which will allow Abbott to expand its vision care business into the rapidly developing laser-assisted cataract surgery market. Abbott expects to complete the acquisition before the end of 2013. 

Abbott confirms full-year 2013 guidance

Abbott is confirming ongoing earnings-per-share guidance for the full year 2013 of $1.98 to $2.04. Abbott forecasts net specified items for the full year 2013 of approximately $0.59 per share. Including these net specified items, projected earnings per share from continuing operations under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) would be $1.39 to $1.45 for the full year 2013. Specified items are primarily associated with intangible amortization expense, cost reduction initiatives, and the impact in the first quarter of the favorable effect of U.S. tax law changes enacted in 2013 related to 2012 results.  

Abbott declares 358th quarterly dividend and $3 billion share repurchase program

On June 14, 2013, the board of directors of Abbott declared the company's quarterly common dividend of $0.14 per share. Abbott's cash dividend is payable Aug. 15, 2013, to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 15, 2013. The board of directors also authorized the repurchase of up to $3 billion of Abbott's common shares, as market conditions warrant and subject to regulatory considerations.
