(Unaudited)

Note 1 — Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited, condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and, therefore, do not include all information and footnote disclosures normally included in audited financial statements. However, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal adjustments) necessary to present fairly the results of operations, financial position and cash flows have been made. It is suggested that these statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in Abbott’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the parent company and subsidiaries, after elimination of intercompany transactions.

Note 2 — Revenue

Abbott’s revenues are derived primarily from the sale of a broad line of health care products under short-term receivable arrangements. Abbott has four reportable segments: Established Pharmaceutical Products, Diagnostic Products, Nutritional Products, and Medical Devices.

The following tables provide detail by sales category:

Remaining Performance Obligations

As of June 30, 2022, the estimated revenue expected to be recognized in the future related to performance obligations that are unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) was approximately $3.9 billion in the Diagnostics segment and approximately $436 million in the Medical Devices segment. Abbott expects to recognize revenue on approximately 60 percent of these remaining performance obligations over the next 24 months, approximately 16 percent over the subsequent 12 months and the remainder thereafter.

These performance obligations primarily reflect the future sale of reagents/consumables in contracts with minimum purchase obligations, extended warranty or service obligations related to previously sold equipment, and remote monitoring services related to previously implanted devices. Abbott has applied the practical expedient described in Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 606-10-50-14 and has not included remaining performance obligations related to contracts with original expected durations of one year or less in the amounts above.

Note 2 — Revenue (Continued)
Other Contract Assets and Liabilities

Abbott discloses Trade receivables separately in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at the net amount expected to be collected. Contract assets primarily relate to Abbott’s conditional right to consideration for work completed but not billed at the reporting date. Contract assets at the beginning and end of the period, as well as the changes in the balance, were not significant.

Contract liabilities primarily relate to payments received from customers in advance of performance under the contract. Abbott’s contract liabilities arise primarily in the Medical Devices reportable segment when payment is received upfront for various multi-period extended service arrangements.

Changes in the contract liabilities during the period are as follows:

(in millions)
Contract Liabilities:
Balance at December 31, 2021 $ 520 
Unearned revenue from cash received during the period 294 
Revenue recognized related to contract liability balance (324)
Balance at June 30, 2022 $ 490 

Note 3 — Supplemental Financial Information

Shares of unvested restricted stock that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends are treated as participating securities and are included in the computation of earnings per share under the two-class method. Under the two-class method, net earnings are allocated between common shares and participating securities. Net earnings allocated to common shares for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 were $2.009 billion and $1.184 billion, respectively, and for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 were $4.447 billion and $2.969 billion, respectively.

Other, net in Net cash from operating activities in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the first six months of 2022 includes $348 million of pension contributions and the payment of cash taxes of approximately $657 million. The first six months of 2021 includes $80 million of pension contributions and the payment of cash taxes of approximately $715 million.

The following summarizes the activity for the first six months of 2022 related to the allowance for doubtful accounts as of June 30, 2022:

(in millions)
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts:
Balance at December 31, 2021 $ 313 
Provisions/charges to income
Amounts charged off and other deductions (34)
Balance at June 30, 2022 $ 288 

The allowance for doubtful accounts reflects the current estimate of credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of the accounts receivable. Abbott considers various factors in establishing, monitoring, and adjusting its allowance for doubtful accounts, including the aging of the accounts and aging trends, the historical level of charge-offs, and specific exposures related to particular customers. Abbott also monitors other risk factors and forward-looking information, such as country risk, when determining credit limits for customers and establishing adequate allowances.

The decrease in Abbott’s long-term investments as of June 30, 2022 versus the balance as of December 31, 2021 primarily relates to a decrease in the value of investments held in a rabbi trust and the impact of equity method investment losses partially offset by an investment in long-term time deposits.

Abbott’s equity securities as of June 30, 2022, include $303 million of investments in mutual funds that are held in a rabbi trust and were acquired as part of the St. Jude Medical, Inc. (St. Jude Medical) business acquisition. These investments, which are specifically designated as available for the purpose of paying benefits under a deferred compensation plan, are not available for general corporate purposes and are subject to creditor claims in the event of insolvency.

Abbott also holds certain investments as of June 30, 2022 with a carrying value of $227 million that are accounted for under the equity method of accounting and other equity investments with a carrying value of approximately $82 million that do not have a readily determinable fair value.

Reclassified amounts for cash flow hedges are recorded as Cost of products sold. Net actuarial losses and prior service cost are included as a component of net periodic benefit costs; see Note 11 for additional details.

Note 5 — Goodwill and Intangible Assets

The total amount of goodwill reported was $22.7 billion at June 30, 2022 and $23.2 billion at December 31, 2021. Foreign currency translation adjustments decreased goodwill by approximately $486 million in the first six months of 2022. The amount of goodwill related to reportable segments at June 30, 2022 was $2.7 billion for the Established Pharmaceutical Products segment, $286 million for the Nutritional Products segment, $3.6 billion for the Diagnostic Products segment, and $16.1 billion for the Medical Devices segment. There was no reduction of goodwill relating to impairments in the first six months of 2022.

The gross amount of amortizable intangible assets, primarily product rights and technology, was $27.3 billion and $27.7 billion as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Accumulated amortization was $16.6 billion and $15.9 billion as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Foreign currency translation adjustments decreased intangible assets by $122 million in the first six months of 2022. Abbott’s estimated annual amortization expense for intangible assets is approximately $2.1 billion in 2022, $2.0 billion in 2023, $1.9 billion in 2024, $1.7 billion in 2025 and $1.6 billion in 2026.

Indefinite-lived intangible assets, which relate to in-process R&D (IPR&D) acquired in a business combination, were approximately $919 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Note 6 — Restructuring Plans

On May 27, 2021, Abbott management approved a restructuring plan related to its Diagnostic Products segment to align its manufacturing network for COVID-19 diagnostic tests with changes in the second quarter in projected testing demand driven by several factors, including significant reductions in cases in the U.S. and other major developed countries, the accelerated rollout of COVID-19 vaccines globally and the U.S. health authority’s updated guidance on testing for fully vaccinated individuals. In the second quarter of 2021, Abbott recorded charges of $499 million under this plan in Cost of products sold. The charge recognized in the second quarter included fixed asset write-downs of $80 million, inventory-related charges of $248 million, and other exit costs, which included contract cancellations and employee-related costs of $171 million.

Note 6 — Restructuring Plans (Continued)
In the second half of 2021, as the Delta and Omicron variants of COVID-19 spread and the number of new COVID-19 cases increased significantly, particularly in the U.S., demand for rapid COVID-19 tests increased significantly. As a result, in the second half of 2021, Abbott sold approximately $181 million of inventory that was previously estimated to have no net realizable value under the second quarter of 2021 restructuring action. In addition, the estimate of other exit costs was reduced by a net $58 million as Abbott fulfilled its purchase obligations under certain contracts for which a liability was recorded in the second quarter of 2021 or Abbott settled with the counterparty in the second half of 2021.

The following summarizes the activity related to this restructuring action and the status of the related accruals as of June 30, 2022:

On March 15, 2022, Abbott repaid the $750 million outstanding principal amount of its 2.55% Notes upon maturity.

Note 9 — Financial Instruments, Derivatives and Fair Value Measures

Certain Abbott foreign subsidiaries enter into foreign currency forward exchange contracts to manage exposures to changes in foreign exchange rates primarily for anticipated intercompany purchases by those subsidiaries whose functional currencies are not the U.S. dollar. These contracts, with gross notional amounts totaling $8.4 billion at June 30, 2022 and $8.6 billion at December 31, 2021, are designated as cash flow hedges of the variability of the cash flows due to changes in foreign exchange rates and are recorded at fair value. Accumulated gains and losses as of June 30, 2022 will be included in Cost of products sold at the time the products are sold, generally through the next twelve to eighteen months.

Abbott enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts to manage currency exposures for foreign currency denominated third-party trade payables and receivables, and for intercompany loans and trade accounts payable where the receivable or payable is denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of the entity. For intercompany loans, the contracts require Abbott to sell or buy foreign currencies, primarily European currencies, in exchange for primarily U.S. dollars and other European currencies. For intercompany and trade payables and receivables, the currency exposures are primarily the U.S. dollar and European currencies. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, Abbott held the gross notional amounts of $11.3 billion and $12.2 billion, respectively, of such foreign currency forward exchange contracts.

Abbott has designated a yen-denominated, 5-year term loan of approximately $437 million and $521 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, as a hedge of the net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. The change in the value of the debt, which is due to changes in foreign exchange rates, is recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), net of tax.

Abbott is a party to interest rate hedge contracts totaling approximately $2.9 billion at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 to manage its exposure to changes in the fair value of fixed-rate debt. These contracts are designated as fair value hedges of the variability of the fair value of fixed-rate debt due to changes in the long-term benchmark interest rates. The effect of the hedge is to change a fixed-rate interest obligation to a variable rate for that portion of the debt. Abbott records the contracts at fair value and adjusts the carrying amount of the fixed-rate debt by an offsetting amount.

The fair value of foreign currency forward exchange contracts is determined using a market approach, which utilizes values for comparable derivative instruments. The fair value of debt was determined based on the face value of the debt adjusted for the fair value of the interest rate swaps, which is based on a discounted cash flow analysis using significant other observable inputs. The fair value of the contingent consideration was determined based on independent appraisals at the time of acquisition, adjusted for the time value of money and other changes in fair value.

Note 10 — Litigation and Environmental Matters

Abbott has been identified as a potentially responsible party for investigation and cleanup costs at a number of locations in the United States and Puerto Rico under federal and state remediation laws and is investigating potential contamination at a number of company-owned locations. Abbott has recorded an estimated cleanup cost for each site for which management believes Abbott has a probable loss exposure. No individual site cleanup exposure is expected to exceed $4 million, and the aggregate cleanup exposure is not expected to exceed $10 million.

Note 10 — Litigation and Environmental Matters (Continued)
Abbott is involved in various claims and legal proceedings, and Abbott estimates the range of possible loss for its legal proceedings and environmental exposures to be from approximately $30 million to $45 million. The recorded accrual balance at June 30, 2022 for these proceedings and exposures was approximately $40 million. This accrual represents management’s best estimate of probable loss, as defined by FASB ASC No. 450, “Contingencies.” Within the next year, legal proceedings may occur that may result in a change in the estimated loss accrued by Abbott. While it is not feasible to predict the outcome of all such proceedings and exposures with certainty, management believes that their ultimate disposition should not have a material adverse effect on Abbott’s financial position, cash flows, or results of operations.

Note 11 — Post-Employment Benefits

Retirement plans consist of defined benefit, defined contribution, and medical and dental plans. Net periodic benefit costs, other than service costs, are recognized in the Other (income) expense, net line of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings. Net cost recognized for the three and six months ended June 30 for Abbott’s major defined benefit plans and post-employment medical and dental benefit plans is as follows:

Abbott funds its domestic defined benefit plans according to Internal Revenue Service funding limitations. International pension plans are funded according to similar regulations. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, $348 million and $80 million, respectively, were contributed to defined benefit plans. In the first six months of 2022, $28 million was contributed to the post-employment medical and dental plans. No contributions were made to the post-employment medical and dental plans in the first six months of 2021.

Note 12 — Taxes on Earnings

Taxes on earnings reflect the estimated annual effective rates and include charges for interest and penalties. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, taxes on earnings include approximately $32 million and $90 million, respectively, in excess tax benefits associated with share-based compensation. In the first six months of 2022, taxes on earnings also include approximately $27 million of tax expense as the result of the resolution of various tax positions related to prior years.

Tax authorities in various jurisdictions regularly review Abbott’s income tax filings. Abbott believes that it is reasonably possible that the recorded amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits may decrease approximately $90 million to $115 million, including cash adjustments, within the next twelve months as a result of concluding various domestic and international tax matters.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Financial Review — Results of Operations

Abbott’s revenues are derived primarily from the sale of a broad line of health care products under short-term receivable arrangements. Patent protection and licenses, technological and performance features, and inclusion of Abbott’s products under a contract most impact which products are sold; price controls, competition and rebates most impact the net selling prices of products; and foreign currency translation impacts the measurement of net sales and costs. Abbott’s primary products are medical devices, diagnostic testing products, nutritional products and branded generic pharmaceuticals.

The following tables detail sales by reportable segment for the three and six months ended June 30. Percent changes are versus the prior year and are based on unrounded numbers.

The 14.3 percent increase in total net sales during the second quarter of 2022, excluding the impact of foreign exchange, reflected demand for Abbott’s rapid diagnostic tests to detect COVID-19 as well as growth in the Medical Devices and Established Pharmaceutical Products segments partially offset by lower Nutritional Products sales. Abbott’s COVID-19 testing-related sales totaled approximately $2.3 billion during the second quarter of 2022 and approximately $1.3 billion during the second quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of COVID-19 testing-related sales, Abbott’s total net sales decreased 0.3 percent. Excluding the impacts of COVID-19 testing-related sales and foreign exchange, Abbott’s total net sales increased 4.1 percent. Abbott’s net sales were unfavorably impacted by changes in foreign exchange rates in the second quarter as the relatively stronger U.S. dollar decreased total international sales by 6.5 percent and total sales by 4.2 percent.

The 15.9 percent increase in total net sales during the first six months of 2022, excluding the impact of foreign exchange, reflected demand for Abbott’s rapid diagnostic tests to detect COVID-19 as well as growth in the Medical Devices and Established Pharmaceutical Products segments partially offset by lower Nutritional Products sales. Abbott’s COVID-19 testing-related sales totaled approximately $5.6 billion during the first six months of 2022 and approximately $3.5 billion during the first six months of 2021. Excluding the impact of COVID-19 testing-related sales, Abbott’s total net sales increased 1.7 percent. Excluding the impacts of COVID-19 testing-related sales and foreign exchange, Abbott’s total net sales increased 5.9 percent. Abbott’s net sales were unfavorably impacted by changes in foreign exchange rates in the first six months as the relatively stronger U.S. dollar decreased total international sales by 6.2 percent and total sales by 3.9 percent.

Due to the unpredictability of the duration and impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the future extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will have a material effect on Abbott’s business, financial condition or results of operations is uncertain.

Excluding the unfavorable effect of foreign exchange, sales in the Key Emerging Markets for Established Pharmaceutical Products increased 11.8 percent in the first six months of 2022, led by double-digit growth in several countries and therapeutic areas, including gastroenterology, central nervous system/pain management, and respiratory products. Other Emerging Markets, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, increased by 9.2 percent in the first six months of 2022.

International Pediatric Nutritional sales, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, decreased 5.6 percent in the first six months of 2022 versus the comparable 2021 period and the decrease reflects lower sales due to challenging market dynamics in the infant category in Greater China partially offset by higher volumes sold in various countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. International Adult Nutritional sales, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, increased 11.5 percent, reflecting double digit growth of the Ensure® and Glucerna® brands in several countries in Southeast Asia and China. In the first six months of 2022, U.S. Adult Nutritional sales increased 2.1 percent.

In U.S. Pediatric Nutritionals, Abbott initiated a voluntary recall in February 2022 of certain infant powder formula products manufactured at its facility in Sturgis, Michigan and stopped production at the facility. The 27.5 percent decrease in U.S. Pediatric Nutritional sales in the first six months of 2022 reflects the impact of the recall and production stoppage partially offset by increased demand for Abbott’s Pedialyte® products. U.S. sales of certain infant powder formulas associated with the recall were $175 million in the first six months of 2022 and $568 million in the first six months of 2021.

On May 16, 2022, Abbott entered into a consent decree with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the steps necessary to resume production and maintain the Sturgis facility and operations. On July 1, Abbott restarted partial production at the facility starting with its specialty formula EleCare® and metabolic formulas. Subsequently, Abbott restarted Similac® production. The consent decree does not affect any other Abbott plant or operation.

Abbott has taken various actions to mitigate the impact of the recall on the supply of formula in the U.S. These actions have included the shipment of infant formula powder into the U.S. from Abbott's FDA-registered facility in Ireland, prioritization of infant formula production at its Columbus, Ohio facility, conversion of other liquid manufacturing lines into manufacturing Similac liquid ready-to-feed product, and increased production of powder infant formula at its Casa Grande, Arizona manufacturing site.

The 35.9 percent increase in Diagnostic Products sales in the first six months of 2022, excluding the impact of foreign exchange, was driven by demand for Abbott’s portfolio of COVID-19 tests in Rapid Diagnostics and growth in routine diagnostic testing in Molecular Diagnostics. In Core Laboratory Diagnostics, sales increased 1.3 percent in the first six months of 2022, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, due to the higher volume of routine diagnostic testing from the continued roll-out of the Alinity® platform and an expanded menu of tests. These increases were partially offset by lower sales of Abbott’s laboratory-based tests for the detection of COVID-19 IgG and IgM antibodies, which determine if someone was previously infected with the COVID-19 virus, as well as market disruptions in China due to COVID-19 quarantine restrictions in various cities during the second quarter of 2022. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, Core Laboratory Diagnostics IgG and IgM antibody testing-related sales on Abbott’s ARCHITECT and Alinity i platforms were $40 million and $112 million, respectively. In the first six months of 2022, Core Laboratory Diagnostics sales decreased 0.5 percent, excluding COVID-19 testing-related sales, and increased 4.3 percent, excluding the impact of foreign exchange and COVID-19 testing-related sales.

The 11.3 percent decrease in Molecular Diagnostics sales in the first six months of 2022, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, was driven by lower demand for Abbott’s laboratory-based molecular tests for COVID-19 partially offset by growth in the base business from increased routine molecular testing and an expanded menu of tests. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, Molecular Diagnostics COVID-19 testing-related sales were $321 million and $480 million, respectively. In the first six months of 2022, Molecular Diagnostics sales increased 21.7 percent, excluding COVID-19 testing-related sales, and increased 26.0 percent, excluding the impact of foreign exchange and COVID-19 testing-related sales.

In Rapid Diagnostics, sales increased 70.4 percent in the first six months of 2022, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, due to the demand for Abbott’s COVID-19 tests on its rapid testing platforms, including the Panbio® system, the ID NOW® platform, and the BinaxNOW® COVID-19 Ag Card test. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, Rapid Diagnostics COVID-19 testing-related sales were $5.3 billion and $2.8 billion, respectively. In the first six months of 2022, Rapid Diagnostics sales increased 14.0 percent, excluding COVID-19 testing-related sales, and increased 16.1 percent, excluding the impact of foreign exchange and COVID-19 testing-related sales. These increases reflect higher sales of ID NOW tests for flu, strep, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as well as growth in various other Rapid Diagnostics products.

Excluding the effect of foreign exchange, total Medical Devices sales grew 9.4 percent in the first six months of 2022, driven by double-digit growth in Diabetes Care, Electrophysiology, Structural Heart and Heart Failure. Growth in Diabetes Care sales was driven by continued growth of FreeStyle Libre®, Abbott’s continuous glucose monitoring system, in the U.S. and internationally. FreeStyle Libre sales totaled $2.1 billion in the first six months of 2022, which reflected a 25.9 percent increase, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, over the first six months of 2021 when FreeStyle Libre sales totaled $1.7 billion. In May 2022, Abbott announced FDA clearance of its Freestyle Libre 3 system, which automatically delivers up-to-the-minute glucose readings and 14-day accuracy in the world's smallest and thinnest wearable sensor.

During the first six months of 2022, procedure volumes across Abbott’s cardiovascular and neuromodulation businesses were negatively impacted by elevated COVID-19 case rates early in 2022 as well as new surges of COVID-19 in several geographies, healthcare staffing challenges, and quarantine restrictions in China during the second quarter. Despite such challenges, overall volume trends improved in several businesses versus the first six months of 2021. In Electrophysiology, the 10.5 percent growth, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, reflects the increase in procedure volumes and the U.S. roll‑out of Abbott’s EnSite™ X EP System with Ensite Omnipolar Technology (OT), a new cardiac mapping platform available in the U.S., Japan and across Europe. In January 2022, Abbott announced FDA clearance for the EnSite X EP System with EnSite OT. The system leverages the Advisor™ HD Grid Catheter to provide a 360‑degree view of the heart without regard to the orientation of the catheter in the heart.

Growth in Structural Heart during the first six months of 2022, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, was 11.7 percent, driven by growth across several areas of the business, including Amplatzer® Amulet® Left Atrial Appendage Occluder, which offers immediate closure of the left atrial appendage, an area in the heart where blood clots can form and MitraClip®, Abbott's market-leading device for the minimally invasive treatment of mitral regurgitation, a leaky heart valve. In Vascular, the 0.4 percent decrease in sales, excluding the impact of foreign exchange, during the first six months of 2022 reflects the negative effect of lower average pricing for drug-eluting stents (DES) in the U.S. and a lag in the recovery of percutaneous coronary intervention case rates compared to many other cardiovascular procedures partially offset by higher endovascular sales.

In the first six months of 2022, Medical Devices received various other product approvals. In February 2022, Abbott received FDA approval for an expanded indication for its CardioMEMS™ HF system, a small implantable sensor and remote monitoring system that can detect early warning signs of worsening heart failure. In April 2022, Abbott announced FDA approval for its Aveir™ single-chamber leadless pacemaker for the treatment of patients in the U.S. with slow heart rhythms.

The gross profit margin percentage was 51.7 percent for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 46.7 percent for the second quarter of 2021 and 52.8 percent for the first six months of 2022 compared to 49.9 percent for the first six months of 2021. The increases in the quarter and the first six months of 2022 reflect the nonrecurrence of $499 million of 2021 restructuring charges. The increases in the quarter and the first six months of 2022 also reflect higher sales volume of COVID-19 rapid tests and various other products, the impact of gross margin improvement initiatives, and the favorable impact of foreign exchange on costs. These increases were partially offset by the impact of the voluntary product recall in the Nutritional business, higher manufacturing and supply chain costs, including inflation, commodities and distribution expenses, and lower COVID-19 testing-related sales in Core Laboratory and Molecular Diagnostics.

Research and development (R&D) expenses increased $30 million, or 4.8 percent, in the second quarter of 2022 and increased $73 million, or 5.6 percent, in the first six months of 2022 compared to the prior year. The increases in R&D expenses in the second quarter and the first six months of 2022 were primarily driven by higher spending on various projects to advance products in development partially offset by the favorable impact of foreign exchange.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $31 million, or 1.1 percent, in the second quarter of 2022, and increased $35 million, or 0.6 percent, in the first six months of 2022, due primarily to higher selling and marketing spending to drive growth across various businesses partially offset by the nonrecurrence of certain 2021 litigation costs and the favorable impact of foreign exchange.

Other (Income) Expense, net

Other income, net increased from $79 million of income in the second quarter of 2021 to $82 million of income in the second quarter of 2022 and from $140 million of income in the first six months of 2021 to $160 million of income in the first six months of 2022. The increases in the second quarter and the first six months of 2022 were primarily due to higher income in 2022 related to the non-service cost components of net pension and post-retirement medical benefit costs
25

partially offset by the nonrecurrence of a gain on the sale of an equity method investment that occurred in the second quarter of 2021.

Interest Expense, net

Interest expense, net declined $17 million in the second quarter of 2022 and $24 million in the first six months of 2022 versus 2021 due to the impact of higher interest rates and cash and short-term investment balances on interest income and the repayment of debt in the first quarter of 2022.

Taxes on Earnings

Taxes on earnings reflect the estimated annual effective rates and include charges for interest and penalties. In the first six months of 2022 and 2021, taxes on earnings include approximately $32 million and $90 million, respectively, in excess tax benefits associated with share-based compensation. In the first six months of 2022, taxes on earnings also include approximately $27 million of tax expense as the result of the resolution of various tax positions related to prior years.

Tax authorities in various jurisdictions regularly review Abbott’s income tax filings. Abbott believes that it is reasonably possible that the recorded amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits may decrease approximately $90 million to $115 million, including cash adjustments, within the next twelve months as a result of concluding various domestic and international tax matters.

Liquidity and Capital Resources June 30, 2022 Compared with December 31, 2021

The decrease in cash and cash equivalents from $9.8 billion at December 31, 2021 to $8.9 billion at June 30, 2022 primarily reflects share repurchases, the payment of dividends, the repayment of debt and capital expenditures partially offset by the cash generated from operations in the first six months of 2022. Working capital was $12.6 billion at June 30, 2022 and $11.1 billion at December 31, 2021. The increase in working capital in 2022 primarily reflects increases in accounts receivable and inventory and a decrease in the current portion of long-term debt partially offset by a decrease in cash and cash equivalents.

In the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, Net cash from operating activities for the first six months of 2022 totaled approximately $4.5 billion, a decrease of $290 million from the prior year primarily due to an increased investment in working capital and the timing of pension and postretirement benefit plan contributions partially offset by higher operating earnings and a reduction in cash taxes paid. Net cash from operating activities includes $348 million of pension contributions and the payment of cash taxes of approximately $657 million in 2022. Net cash from operating activities includes $80 million of pension contributions and the payment of cash taxes of approximately $715 million in 2021.

On March 15, 2022, Abbott repaid the $750 million outstanding principal amount of its 2.55% Notes upon maturity.

In September 2019, the board of directors authorized the early redemption of up to $5 billion of outstanding long-term notes. As of June 30, 2022, $2.15 billion of the $5 billion authorization remains available.

At June 30, 2022, Abbott’s long-term debt rating was AA- by Standard & Poor’s Corporation and A1 by Moody’s Investors Service. Abbott expects to maintain an investment grade rating. Abbott has readily available financial resources, including lines of credit of $5.0 billion which expire in 2025.

In December 2021, the board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $5 billion of Abbott’s common shares from time to time. The new authorization was in addition to the $1.081 billion portion of the share repurchase program authorized in 2019 that was unused as of December 31, 2021. In the first quarter of 2022, Abbott repurchased 17.3 million of its common shares for $2.1 billion which fully utilized the authorization remaining under the 2019 share repurchase program and a portion of the 2021 authorization. As of June 30, 2022, $3.981 billion remains available for repurchase under the 2021 repurchase program.

In each of the first two quarters of 2022, Abbott declared a quarterly dividend of $0.47 per share on its common shares, which represents an increase of 4.4 percent over the $0.45 per share dividend declared in each of the first two quarters of 2021.

Legislative Issues

Abbott’s primary markets are highly competitive and subject to substantial government regulations throughout the world. Abbott expects debate to continue over the availability, method of delivery, and payment for health care products and services. It is not possible to predict the extent to which Abbott or the health care industry in general might be adversely affected by these factors in the future. A more complete discussion of these factors is contained in Item 1, Business, and Item 1A, Risk Factors, in the 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 — A Caution Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

Under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Abbott cautions that any forward-looking statements made by Abbott are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Economic, competitive, governmental, technological and other factors that may affect Abbott's operations are discussed in Item 1A, "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and are incorporated herein by reference. Abbott undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to forward-looking statements as a result of subsequent events or developments, except as required by law.
