  • GAAP diluted EPS growth of 72.7 percent; adjusted diluted EPS growth of 22.2 percent
  • Global COVID-19 testing-related sales of $2.3 billion in the second quarter
  • Continues to strengthen portfolio with new product approvals

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Abbott (NYSE: ABT) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

  • Second-quarter sales of $11.3 billion increased 10.1 percent on a reported basis and 14.3 percent on an organic basis, which excludes the impact of foreign exchange.
  • GAAP diluted EPS1 was $1.14 in the second quarter. Excluding specified items, adjusted diluted EPS was $1.43, which reflects growth of 22.2 percent compared to the prior year.
  • Global COVID-19 testing-related sales were $2.3 billion in the second quarter.
  • Abbott is raising its full-year 2022 EPS guidance. Abbott projects full-year diluted EPS on a GAAP basis of at least $3.50 and projected adjusted diluted EPS of at least $4.90.
  • 2022 guidance includes projected COVID-19 testing-related sales of $6.1 billion, which includes sales of $5.6 billion through June 2022 and projected sales of $500 million over the next few months.
  • In April, Abbott announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of its Aveir™ single-chamber (VR) leadless pacemaker for the treatment of patients with slow heart rhythms. Aveir VR is the world’s only leadless pacemaker with a unique mapping capability to assess correct positioning prior to placement and was specifically designed to be expandable and retrievable when therapy needs evolve or the device needs to be replaced.
  • In May, Abbott announced U.S. FDA clearance of its FreeStyle Libre® 3 system, which automatically delivers up-to-the-minute glucose readings and unsurpassed 14-day accuracy2 in the world’s smallest and thinnest3 wearable sensor.
  • In June, Abbott announced breakthrough device designation from the U.S. FDA for its first-of-its-kind glucose-ketone biowearable sensor development program, which will enable people with diabetes to continuously monitor glucose and ketones in one sensor, helping those at risk for developing a life-threatening complication called diabetic ketoacidosis.

“We achieved another quarter of strong growth and are raising our full-year EPS guidance,” said Robert B. Ford, chairman and chief executive officer, Abbott. “Our new product pipeline has remained highly productive, and our diversified business has continued to be resilient in a challenging macro environment.”

Worldwide Medical Devices sales increased 2.5 percent on a reported basis and 7.5 percent on an organic basis in the second quarter.

In Diabetes Care, FreeStyle Libre sales were approximately $1.1 billion in the quarter, which represents sales growth of 18.7 percent on a reported basis and 25.6 percent on an organic basis.
