Abbott Reports Third-Quarter 2022 Results and Raises
Full-Year EPS Guidance

Worldwide sales of $10.4 billion in the third quarter
Raises full-year earnings-per-share guidance
Continues to strengthen portfolio with new product approvals and launches
ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Oct. 19, 2022 — Abbott today announced financial results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2022.

Third-quarter sales of $10.4 billion decreased 4.7 percent on a reported basis and increased 1.3 percent on an organic basis, which excludes the impact of foreign exchange.
GAAP diluted EPS1 was $0.81 in the third quarter. Excluding specified items, adjusted diluted EPS was $1.15.
Abbott is raising its full-year 2022 EPS guidance. Abbott projects full-year diluted EPS on a GAAP basis of $3.75 to $3.81 and projects adjusted diluted EPS of $5.17 to $5.23.
Full-year 2022 guidance assumes COVID-19 testing-related sales of $7.8 billion, which includes sales of $7.3 billion through September 2022 and projected sales of $0.5 billion in the fourth quarter.
U.S. Medical Devices sales grew 11.3 percent in the third quarter, led by strong double-digit growth in Electrophysiology, Structural Heart and Diabetes Care.
In September, Abbott presented new data showing its FreeStyle Libre® continuous glucose monitoring system helped reduce acute diabetes-related events, leading to a 67 percent decrease in hospitalizations in people with Type 2 diabetes on once-daily (basal) insulin therapy.2
During the quarter, Abbott launched its latest-generation FreeStyle Libre 3 system in the U.S., which automatically delivers up-to-the-minute glucose readings and unsurpassed 14-day accuracy3 in the world's smallest and thinnest3 wearable sensor.
During the quarter, following a manufacturing stoppage earlier this year, Abbott restarted production of Similac® as well as EleCare® and metabolic infant formulas at its Sturgis, Michigan, facility.

"Our results and increased guidance in the current macroeconomic environment reflect the strength of our diversified business model and execution," said Robert B. Ford, chairman and chief executive officer, Abbott. "We're particularly pleased with improving sales growth rates in U.S. Medical Devices, which is being fueled by several recent product launches, as well as continued strong performance in Established Pharmaceuticals."

Note: 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.

Total sales in the third quarter were negatively impacted by year-over-year declines in COVID-19 testing-related sales and a manufacturing stoppage initiated in February of certain infant formula products manufactured at Abbott's Sturgis, Michigan, facility. Excluding COVID-19 testing-related sales4 and the U.S. sales associated with the manufacturing stoppage5 in the current and prior years, total worldwide sales decreased 0.6 percent on a reported basis and increased 6.0 percent on an organic basis in the third quarter.

In Diabetes Care, FreeStyle Libre sales were approximately $1.0 billion in the quarter, including U.S. growth of more than 40 percent. International FreeStyle Libre sales were negatively impacted by supply constraints of Abbott's first-generation FreeStyle Libre system in certain emerging markets.
