The company announced in December 2006 that an agreement in principle had been reached. In connection with the settlement, the company has entered into a five-year corporate integrity agreement with the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services ("OIG") that provides for, among other obligations, the continued development and maintenance of the company's compliance programs relating to the company's U.S. pharmaceuticals business.

As previously announced, the agreement provides for a civil resolution and payment of $499 million, the full amount of which has been reserved. There are no criminal charges against the company. The agreement will not affect the company's ongoing business with any customers, including the government.

Bristol-Myers Squibb is pleased to have resolved these matters from the past and is proud of its commitment to conduct business with the highest standards of integrity in its mission to extend and enhance human life.
