Medco Delivers First-Quarter 2009 GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.58; Diluted EPS Excluding Amortization of Intangible Assets of $0.63; Reaffirms 2009 EPS Guidance; Announces Win of Coventry Commercial Business Starting January 1, 2010
Date:4/29/2009

adjusted prescription, is affected by the changes in prescription volumes between retail and mail order, the relative representation of brand-name, generic and specialty pharmacy drugs, as well as the level of efficiency in the business. Adjusted prescription volume equals substantially all mail-order prescriptions multiplied by three, plus retail prescriptions. These mail-order prescriptions are multiplied by three to adjust for the fact that they include approximately three times the amount of product days supplied compared with retail prescriptions.

Medco uses diluted earnings per share excluding intangible asset amortization expense that existed when Medco became a public company in 2003 as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The excluded amortization is associated with intangible assets that substantially arose in connection with the acquisition of Medco by Merck & Co., Inc. in 1993 and were pushed down to Medco's balance sheet. The company believes that diluted earnings per share, excluding the amortization of these intangibles, is a useful measure because by adjusting for this significant non-cash item it enhances comparability of the company's financial results with its peers. The intangible asset amortization resulting from Medco's acquisitions, such as the acquisitions of Accredo Health, Incorporated in August 2005, and PolyMedica Corporation in October 2007, are not part of the excluded amortization in this calculation because they result from Medco investment decisions.
