Comments from Robert Ford, CEO:

"Turning to diagnostics. Sales increased more than 55%, which includes $1.3 billion of COVID testing-related sales. Excluding COVID testing-related sales, underlying diagnostic sales increased 37% compared to last year."

"Strong sales growth in our underlying diagnostic business is being driven by improving routine diagnostic testing as healthcare systems continue to recover from the pandemic, as well as the continued rollout of our Alinity platforms. Excluding COVID testing-related sales, second quarter sales in core laboratory and molecular diagnostics grew mid single digits compared to pre-pandemic levels in the second quarter of 2019."

"Strong growth in the quarter was led by structural heart, electrophysiology, heart failure and diabetes care, all of which grew double digits compared to the second quarter of 2019. In structural heart, we achieved the highest number of MitraClip procedures ever in the second quarter, including a record number of procedures in the month of June."

"So in summary, we’re achieving strong growth across all four of our major businesses, particularly pleased with the strong momentum and growth contributions we’re seeing from several recently launched products and investments we’re making in our key growth platforms, and our new product pipeline continues to be incredibly productive, delivering a steady cadence of new products with more to come over the next several months." 

Comments from Bob Funck, CFO: 

"Regarding other aspects of the P&L for the quarter, the adjusted gross margin ratio was 56.9% of sales, adjusted R&D investment was 6.2% of sales and adjusted SG&A expense was 25.8% of sales."

"Turning to the outlook for the third quarter, we forecast adjusted earnings per share of at least $0.90, which reflects continued strong growth and momentum in our core underlying business and a sequential step down in COVID testing-related sales compared to the second quarter. And based on current rates, we would expect exchange to have a favorable impact of around 1% on our third quarter reported sales."

Highlights from 2020 CEO's Letter to Shareholders

Robert Ford
President and Chief Executive Officer

 Robert Ford CEO Abbott Labs

"We recognized early in the year that COVID would require a major mobilization on our part as a global leader in medical diagnostics. To tackle a challenge of this magnitude, we knew the world would need different tests for different stages of the disease process and for different testing environments — from high-throughput instruments capable of handling large volumes of tests at once, to rapid point-of-care testing delivering reliable, on-the-spot results, fast. We formed multiple R&D teams to pursue these complementary objectives. The result was a range of tools across the testing spectrum for use from advanced labs to drive-thru sites."

"As important as creating the tests themselves is the ability to produce them at massive scale to meet this unprecedented need for ongoing testing at the population level. So, we moved with unprecedented speed to increase our manufacturing capacity, quickly launching three new facilities, allowing us to deliver tens of millions of tests every month."

"Looking ahead, we recently launched our 2030 Sustainability Plan, outlining strategies and commitments for how we’ll lead the company in the coming years to address critical societal goals."

"We believe that by reconceptualizing the strategy and process of development we can create future products with both imperatives — effectiveness and affordability — as equally fundamental design principles, without compromising quality."
