Abbott's business is subject to uncertainties and risks. You should carefully consider and evaluate all of the information included below and
incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus, including the risk factors incorporated by reference from
Abbott's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under the caption "Item 1A--Risk Factors" and Abbott's subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-
Q, which are incorporated by reference herein, and the other information contained in this prospectus supplement or accompanying prospectus or
incorporated by reference herein, as updated by Abbott's subsequent filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange
Act") which also are incorporated by reference into this document. See the section entitled "Where You Can Find More Information."
Risks Relating to the Notes
A public trading market for the notes may not develop.
We have not applied and do not intend to apply for listing of the notes on any securities exchange or any automated quotation system. As a result,
markets for the notes may not develop or, if any do develop, they may not be sustained. If active markets for the notes fail to develop or cannot be
sustained, the trading prices and liquidity of the notes could be adversely affected.
The market prices of the notes may be volatile.
The market prices of the notes will depend on many factors that may vary over time and some of which are beyond our control, including:
·
our financial performance;
·
the amount of indebtedness we and our subsidiaries have outstanding;
·
market interest rates;
·
the market for similar securities;
·
competition; and
·
general economic conditions.
As a result of these factors, you may only be able to sell your notes at prices below those you believe to be appropriate, including prices below the
price you paid for them.
An increase in interest rates could result in a decrease in the relative value of the notes.
In general, as market interest rates rise, notes bearing interest at a fixed rate generally decline in value. Consequently, if you purchase these notes
and market interest rates increase, the market values of your notes may decline. We cannot predict the future level of market interest rates.
Ratings of each series of notes may not reflect all risks of an investment in the notes.
We expect that the notes will be rated by at least one nationally recognized statistical rating organization. The ratings of the notes will primarily
reflect our financial strength and will change in accordance with the rating of our financial strength. Any rating is not a recommendation to purchase,
sell, or hold the notes. These ratings do not correspond to market price or suitability for a particular investor. In addition, ratings at any time may be
lowered or withdrawn in their entirety.
S-5
Table of Contents
The notes do not restrict our ability to incur additional debt or prohibit us from taking other action that could negatively impact holders of the notes.
We are not restricted under the terms of the indenture governing the notes or the notes from incurring additional indebtedness. The terms of the
indenture governing the notes limit our ability to secure additional debt without also securing the notes and to enter into sale and leaseback transactions.
However, these limitations are subject to numerous exceptions. See Sections 10.6 and 10.7 of the indenture governing the notes. In addition, the notes do
not require us to achieve or maintain any minimum financial results relating to our financial position or results of operations. Our ability to recapitalize,
incur additional debt, secure existing or future debt, or take a number of other actions that are not limited by the terms of the indenture governing the
notes or the notes, including repurchasing indebtedness or common shares or preferred shares, if any, or paying dividends, could have the effect of
diminishing our ability to make payments on the notes when due.
Neither we nor any of our subsidiaries have any property that has been determined to be a principal domestic property under the indenture
governing the notes.
https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1800/000104746920003812/a2241945z424b5.htm[6/24/2020 8:55:54 AM]


The indenture governing the notes includes covenants that, among other things, limit our ability and the ability of our domestic subsidiaries to
(i) incur, issue, assume or guarantee any indebtedness for borrowed money secured by a mortgage on any principal domestic property or on any shares
of stock or debt of any domestic subsidiary without effectively providing that the notes be secured equally and ratably and (ii) enter into sale and
leaseback transactions with respect to principal domestic properties. However, as of March 31, 2020, neither we, nor any of our domestic subsidiaries,
have any property that constitutes a principal domestic property under the indenture governing the notes.
Our board of directors has broad discretion to determine that a property is not a principal domestic property and therefore is not subject to certain
covenants in the indenture governing the notes.
The indenture governing the notes includes covenants that, among other things, limit our ability and the ability of our domestic subsidiaries to
(i) incur, issue, assume or guarantee any indebtedness for borrowed money secured by a mortgage on any principal domestic property, or any shares of
stock or debt of any domestic subsidiary, without effectively providing that the notes be secured equally and ratably and (ii) enter into sale and
leaseback transactions with respect to principal domestic properties. The indenture governing the notes provides that a principal domestic property
means any building, structure or other facility, together with the land upon which it is erected and fixtures comprising a part thereof, used primarily for
manufacturing, processing, research, warehousing or distribution and located in the United States of America (excluding its territories and possessions
and Puerto Rico), owned or leased by us or any of our domestic subsidiaries and having a net book value which, on the date the determination as to
whether a property is a principal domestic property is being made, exceeds 2% of our consolidated net assets, other than any such building, structure or
other facility or a portion thereof (i) which is an air or water pollution control facility financed by state or local governmental obligations, or (ii) which
the chairman of the board of directors, the chief executive officer, an executive vice president, a senior vice president or a vice president, and the chief
financial officer, the treasurer, or an assistant treasurer, of Abbott determines in good faith, at any time on or prior to such date, is not of material
importance to the total business conducted, or assets owned, by us and our subsidiaries as an entirety. Although it has not yet done so, under the terms
of the indenture governing the notes, our chairman of the board of directors or any such executive officers may determine from time to time after the
issuance of the notes that a property is not a principal domestic property and therefore such property is not subject to the covenants in the indenture
governing the notes.
S-6
Table of Contents
Our financial performance and other factors could adversely impact our ability to make payments on the notes.
Our ability to make scheduled payments with respect to our indebtedness, including the notes, will depend on our financial and operating
performance, which, in turn, are subject to prevailing economic conditions and to financial, business and other factors beyond our control.
The notes will be unsecured and effectively subordinated to our secured debt because, in certain circumstances, the holders of secured debt will be
entitled to proceed against the collateral securing such debt and only the proceeds of such collateral in excess of the secured debt will be available
for payment of the unsecured debt, including the notes.
The notes will be unsecured. As of March 31, 2020, we did not have any significant secured debt outstanding. In certain circumstances, the holders
of any secured debt that we may have may foreclose on our assets securing such debt, reducing the cash flow from the foreclosed property available for
payment of unsecured debt. The holders of any secured debt that we may have also would have priority over unsecured creditors in the event of our
liquidation. In the event of our bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, the holders of secured debt that we may have would be entitled to
proceed against their collateral, and that collateral will not be available for payment of unsecured debt, including the notes. As a result, the notes will be
effectively subordinated to any secured debt that we may have to the extent of the collateral securing such debt.
The notes are structurally subordinated to the liabilities of our subsidiaries, which may reduce our ability to use the assets of our subsidiaries to
make payments on the notes.
The notes are not guaranteed by our subsidiaries and therefore the notes will be structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and
other liabilities of our subsidiaries. In the event of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding of a subsidiary, following payment by the subsidiary
of its liabilities, the subsidiary may not have sufficient assets to make payments to us. As of March 31, 2020, our subsidiaries had approximately
$5,267 million of outstanding indebtedness (excluding intercompany debt and liabilities and accounts payable incurred in the ordinary course of
business), of which approximately $5,050 million is attributable to senior notes issued by Abbott Ireland Financing DAC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Abbott Laboratories and special purpose vehicle, and guaranteed by Abbott Laboratories. Accordingly, the notes will rank pari passu with the senior
notes issued by Abbott Ireland Financing DAC.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Some of the statements contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement are forward-looking statements that are subject to the
safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes,"

and in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in this prospectus supplement. See the section entitled "Where You Can Find More Information."
No assurance can be made that any expectation, estimate, or projection contained in a forward-looking statement will be achieved or will not be
affected by the factors cited above or other unknown or future events. Abbott undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to forward-
looking statements as the result of subsequent events or developments, except as required by law.

include, without limitation, the repayment of indebtedness.

DESCRIPTION OF NOTES
The following summary of the particular terms of the notes offered by this prospectus supplement supplements and, to the extent inconsistent with
the accompanying prospectus, replaces the description of the general terms and provisions of the debt securities contained in the accompanying
prospectus, to which description reference is made by this prospectus supplement. The summary herein and in the accompanying prospectus of certain
provisions of the indenture (as defined below) does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, all the
provisions of the base indenture (as defined below), which has been filed as an exhibit to the current report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on
March 10, 2015. You should read the indenture for a complete statement of the provisions described in this prospectus supplement and the
accompanying prospectus and other provisions that may be important to you. In this section of this prospectus supplement, references to "Abbott," "we,"
"our," "us" and the "Company" are to Abbott Laboratories (and not its subsidiaries) and any person that succeeds thereto, and is substituted therefor,
under the terms of the indenture.
General
Abbott will issue the notes as two separate series of debt securities under that certain indenture, dated as of March 10, 2015 (the "base indenture"),
between Abbott and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "trustee"), with certain terms being set forth in an officers' certificate (together with
the base indenture, the "indenture").
The notes will be Abbott's unsecured, unsubordinated debt obligations and will rank equally in right of payment with all of Abbott's other
unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations from time to time outstanding.
Title
The title of each series of notes will be the 1.150% Notes due 2028 and the 1.400% Notes due 2030.
Total Initial Principal Amount
The 2028 Notes will initially be limited to $650,000,000 aggregate principal amount.
The 2030 Notes will initially be limited to $650,000,000 aggregate principal amount.
Abbott may from time to time, without notice to or the consent of the holders of the notes, issue additional series of debt securities under the
indenture or additional notes of a series of notes.
Additional notes may be consolidated and form a single series with an existing series of the notes and have the same terms as to status, redemption
or otherwise as such series of notes (except for the issue date, the public offering price and the first payment of interest thereon), provided, however, that
if such additional notes are not fungible with the notes of the applicable series for U.S. federal income tax purposes, such additional notes will have a
separate CUSIP number. For purposes of this description, any reference to notes of a series shall include any notes of the same series issued after the
closing of this offering.
Maturity of Notes
The 2028 Notes will mature on January 30, 2028.
The 2030 Notes will mature on June 30, 2030.
