Executive Summary

Abbott's worldwide nutrition sales jump 11.8 percent to $1.32 billion in the first quarter, benefiting from foreign exchange and continued growth in emerging markets. International nutritional sales climbed 18.1 percent to $678 million in the January-March period, while the U.S. grew 5.9 percent to $642 million, the Abbott Park, Ill., firm reported April 21. Sales of adult nutrition brands, including Ensure and Glucerna, climbed 10.3 percent in the U.S. and 20.6 percent internationally. VP of Investor Relations John Thomas said in an earnings call. Abbott Nutrition in China is growing twice the market rate. While Abbott's deal to buy Wockhardt's Indian nutritional business was called off, Abbott likely seeks other nutritional opportunities in India (1"The Tan Sheet" April 5, 2010). In the quarter, the company recorded total sales of $7.7 billion, a 14.6 percent gain over the year-ago quarter
