Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • The increase in Total Net Sales in 2020 reflects volume growth in the Diagnostics and Nutritional Products segments.  In Medical Devices, the impact of COVID-19 on Abbott’s cardiovascular and neuromodulation businesses was partially offset by double-digit volume growth in Diabetes Care.  The increase in Total Net Sales in 2019 reflects volume growth across all of Abbott’s segments.  The price declines related to the Medical Devices segment in 2020 and 2019 primarily reflect DES pricing pressures as a result of market competition in the U.S. and other major markets.
  • A comparison of significant product and product group sales is as follows.  Percent changes are versus the prior year and are based on unrounded numbers.
  • In order to compute results excluding the impact of exchange rates, current year U.S. dollar sales are multiplied or divided, as appropriate, by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then those amounts are multiplied or divided, as appropriate, by the prior year average foreign exchange rates.
