Abbott Reports Strong Growth in First Quarter

The first quarter is in the books and Abbott showed strong results, positioning the company for long-term sustainable and organic growth.

For the quarter, we beat Street estimates on the top and bottom lines, and we expect to continue to deliver top-tier sales and double-digit EPS growth throughout 2018. With today’s results, Abbott has met or beaten Street adjusted EPS estimates every quarter for more than 10 years.

The strong growth we delivered this quarter is a direct result of the strategic steps we’ve taken to position the company in the most attractive areas of healthcare and the productivity of our technologies. In the first quarter:

We continued to revolutionize how people manage their diabetes.
