Net sales increased by 30.4% from Rs. 8.43 billion in FY09 to Rs. 11.0 billion in FY10, mainly attributable to increased sales volume and limited price adjustments. Thus Abbot Laboratories crossed its Rs. 10 billion sales benchmark, highlighting the excellent performance of the company. Abbott Pakistan achieved a market share of 6.1% in the pharmaceutical and nutrition market. In 2009 market share was 5.8%. Cost of goods sold increased by 19.24% compared to FY09 on account of inflationary pressures, increased energy tariffs, and increase in the cost of imported pharmaceutical constituents due to depreciation of rupee in FY10. As a result, gross profit posted a growth of 49.74% from Rs. 2.46 billion in FY09 to Rs. 3.69 billion in FY10. Selling, distribution and administrative expenses increased significantly in the restrictive economic environment, leading to increase in operating profit. Coupled with a 23.12% decrease in other income and a 37% increase in other charges, this led to an overall 98% increase in EBIT in FY10. Finance cost increased by 39.80% due to increase in bank charges on short-term financing needs. Taxation increased by 65.77% over FY09-10. This led to increase in profit after taxation from Rs. 609 million in FY09 to Rs. 1177 million in FY10. This strong performance was reflected in the EPS, which increased by 93% from Rs. 6.22 per share in FY09 to Rs. 12.02 per share in FY10.
