The board of directors of Abbott declared a quarterly dividend is 14c per share, payable Feb. 15, 2013, to shareholders of record on Jan. 15, 2013. The management of AbbVie, Abbott's research-based pharmaceuticals business, intends to recommend a cash dividend, subject to AbbVie board approval, of 40c per share, which together with Abbott's dividend will equal a cash dividend of 54c per share, an increase of nearly 6% over Abbott's quarterly cash dividend declared in September.

11:34 EDTABTEC clears Abbott sale of non-U.S. EPD-DM business to Mylan, with conditions
The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Abbott Laboratories' (ABT) Non-U.S. Developed Markets Specialty and Branded Generics Business, or EPD-DM, by Mylan (MYL). The decision is conditional upon the divestment of a number of Mylan's businesses in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Italy. The Commission had concerns that the transaction, as initially notified, would have reduced competition on the market for several medicines. The commitments offered by Mylan address these concerns, the EC said.
