The Exchange Notes:
·
The terms of the Exchange Notes to be issued in the Exchange Offers are substantially identical to the terms of the
corresponding series of Original Notes, except that the issuance of the Exchange Notes will be registered under the
Securities Act and the transfer restrictions, registration rights and additional interest provisions applicable to the
Original Notes will not apply to the Exchange Notes. The Exchange Notes will represent the same debt as the
Original Notes, and AbbVie will issue the Exchange Notes under the same indenture that governs the applicable
series of Original Notes.
·
The Exchange Notes will be our general, unsecured senior obligations, will rank equally in right of payment with
all of our existing and future unsecured senior indebtedness, liabilities and other obligations and will rank senior in
right of payment to all of our existing and future unsecured, subordinated indebtedness, liabilities and other
obligations. In addition, the Exchange Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of our existing and future
secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness and will be structurally
subordinated to all of the existing and future indebtedness, liabilities and other obligations (including trade
payables) of AbbVie's subsidiaries (other than indebtedness, liabilities and other obligations owed to AbbVie, if
any).
·
The Exchange USD Notes will not be listed on any securities exchange or any automated dealer quotation system.
AbbVie will apply to list the Exchange Euro Notes on the New York Stock Exchange. The listing application will
be subject to approval by the New York Stock Exchange. If such listing is obtained, AbbVie has no obligation to
maintain such listing, and it may delist any series of the Exchange Euro Notes at any time. There is currently no
market for the Exchange Notes.
All untendered Original Notes will continue to be subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth in the Original Notes and in
the Indenture (as defined below) governing the applicable series of Original Notes. In general, the Original Notes may not be
offered or sold unless registered under the Securities Act, except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to,
registration under the Securities Act. Other than in connection with the Exchange Offers, AbbVie does not currently anticipate that
it will register the offer or sale of any series of the Original Notes under the Securities Act.
Each broker-dealer that receives Exchange Notes for its own account pursuant to an Exchange Offer must acknowledge that
it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of such Exchange Notes. The letter of transmittal states that, by so
acknowledging and by delivering a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it is an "underwriter" within the
meaning of the Securities Act. This prospectus, as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, may be used by a
broker-dealer in connection with resales of Exchange Notes received in exchange for Original Notes where such Original Notes
were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities. We have agreed that, for a
period of up to 180 days after the expiration date, we will make this prospectus available to any broker-dealer for use in
connection with any such resale. See "Plan of Distribution."
Investing in the Exchange Notes involves risks. See "Risk Factors" beginning on page 19 of this prospectus and those
risk factors incorporated by reference into this prospectus for a discussion of certain risks that you should consider before
tendering your outstanding Original Notes in connection with the Exchange Offers.
