Item 2.02 – Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On January 18, 2005, Abbott Laboratories announced its results of operations for the fourth quarter and full year of 2004.

 

Furnished as Exhibit 99.1, and incorporated herein by reference, is the news release issued by Abbott announcing those results.  In that news release, Abbott uses various non-GAAP financial measures including, among others: earnings from continuing operations excluding one-time charges and diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations excluding one-time charges.  These non-GAAP financial measures adjust for factors that are unusual or unpredictable.  Abbott’s management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding Abbott’s results of operations as these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better evaluate ongoing business performance.  Abbott’s management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to monitor performance of the businesses.  Abbott, however, cautions investors to consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

Item 9.01 – Financial Statements and Exhibits.
