Date:1/21/2013

NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), a global biopharmaceutical company, has been named to the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrat Index for 2013.

The Dividend Aristocrat Index measures the performance of dividend-paying companies within the S&P 500 Index that have followed a policy of increasing dividends each year for at least 25 consecutive years.  In 2013, only 54 companies, approximately 11 percent of companies named to the S&P 500 Index, were included in this year's update. 

"AbbVie is honored to be included among the premier dividend-paying companies which are represented by this Index," said Bill Chase , executive vice president and chief financial officer, AbbVie. "AbbVie is committed to delivering attractive shareholder returns through a strong and sustainable dividend which we intend to grow in the future."

AbbVie was included as a result of the Index's change in its treatment of spin-off companies.  AbbVie was also named to the S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index, which measures the performance of companies within the S&P Composite 1500 that have followed a policy of increasing dividends each year for at least 20 consecutive years.
