Financial report summary

  • The manufacture of many of Abbott’s products is a highly exacting and complex process, and if Abbott or one of its suppliers encounters problems manufacturing products, Abbott’s business could suffer.
Management Discussion
  • The increase in Total Net Sales in 2019 reflects volume growth across all of Abbott’s segments.  The increase in Total Net Sales in 2018 reflects the acquisition of Alere, as well as volume growth across all of Abbott’s segments.  The price declines related to the Medical Devices segment in 2019 and 2018 primarily reflect pricing pressures on drug eluting stents (DES) 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.
  • n/m = percent change is not meaningful.
