ST. LOUIS, April 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 6, 2012, Medco Health Solutions, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ: ESRX), issued a notice of redemption to the holders of its 7.25% Senior Notes due August 15, 2013 (Cusip No. 58405UAC6) (the "Notes"), which were issued under the Indenture, dated as of August 12, 2003, between Medco and U.S. Bank Trust National Association, as trustee.  As indicated in the notice of redemption, Medco intends to redeem the Notes, pursuant to the optional redemption provisions of the Indenture, on May 7, 2012.  The redemption of the Notes, which is expected to be financed by Express Scripts, primarily from cash on hand, is consistent with Express Scripts' previously announced plans to de-lever following the completion of the Medco acquisition.
