    When do you believe the specifics will be announced?

    • Under Abbott Website Look at "Investors Relations" historically "Hospira Spin-off " is a good example of what we will get, Notification when it happens now we are told by year end 12/31/2012

      So an announcement before the spin off dividend 12/31/2012 , say some time after 9/30/1012.

      But they need to get an IRS approval of the tax free spinoff, So I am sure if it's 12/31/2012 we need all the Tax Information well before 4/15/2013.

      Hospira Spin-off

      The following page contains information related to Abbott's spin-off of Hospira, Inc. For more information on Hospira go to
