(1) Effective September 1, 2007, we converted a number of the PharmaCare retail pharmacy network contracts to the Caremark contract structure, which resulted in those contracts being accounted for using the gross method. This change caused total net revenues ond quarter ended June 28, 2008, increased 2.7% to 136.3 million compared to 132.7 million in the prior year period. The increase in retail network claims was driven primarily by increased enrollment in the Medicare Part D business. Mail service claims processed during the second quarter ended June 28, 2008 decreased 18.9% to 15.0 million compared to 18.5 million in the prior year period primarily due to the termination of the Federal Employees Health Benefit Plan mail contract effective December 31, 2007.

Earnings from continuing operations:

Earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter ended June 28, 2008, increased 13.8% to $823.5 million or $0.56 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, compared with earnings from continuing operations of $723.6 million or $0.47 per diluted share in the comparable 2007 period. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, which excludes $97.8 million in amortization of intangible assets primarily related to acquisition activity, for the second quarter were $0.60, compared with $0.51 per share in the comparable 2007 period. Earnings from continuing operations for the six months ended June 28, 2008, increased 38.8% to $1,572.0 million or $1.07 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, compared with earnings from continuing operations of $1,132.5 million or $0.91 per diluted share in the comparable 2007 period. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, which excludes $195.7 million in amortization of intangible assets primarily related to acquisition activity, for the six months were $1.15, compared with $0.99 per share in the comparable 2007 period.

Tom Ryan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CVS Caremark said, "This was another quarter of strong financial performance across our businesses. We delivered solid improvement in sales and gross margins and continued to exercise disciplined expense control. That enabled us to hit a record operating profit margin this quarter.to increase by approximately $667.6 million and $1.4 billion during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2008, respectively.

(2) The Comparable Financial Information combines the historical Pharmacy Services Segment results of CVS and Caremark assuming the Caremark Merger and any adjustments to the estimated assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of March 22, 2007 occurred at the beginning the twenty-six week period ended June 30, 2007. Accordingly, the comparable results include incremental depreciation and amortization resulting from the fixed and intangible assets recorded in connection with the Caremark Merger and exclude merger-related expenses and integration costs. The comparable financial information has been provided for illustrative purposes only and does not purport to be indicative of the actual results that would have been achieved by the combined business segment for the periods presented or that will be achieved by the combined business segment in the future.

(3) Merger and integration costs for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2008 primarily consist of system integration and facility consolidation costs. Merger and integration costs for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2007 include $10.6 million of severance and retention costs and $8.2 million of other merger-related costs. Merger and integration costs for the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2008 primarily consist of severance and retention, system integration and facility consolidation costs. Merger and integration costs for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2007, include $80.3 million of stock option expense associated with the accelerated vesting of certain Caremark stock options, which vested upon consummation of the merger due to change in control provisions of the underlying Caremark stock option plans, $42.9 million of change-in-control payments due upon the consummation of the merger due to change-in-control provisions in certain Caremark employment agreements and merger-related costs of $110.9 million. Merger-related costs include $43.8 million of investment banker fees, $32.8 million of legal and accounting fees and $34.3 million of other merger-related costs.

EBITDA and EBITDA per Adjusted Claim

------------------------------------

The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (and excluding merger and integration related costs). We define EBITDA per adjusted claim as EBITDA divided by adjusted pharmacy claims. Adjusted pharmacy claims normalize the claims volume statistic for the difference in average days' supply for mail and retail claims. Adjusted pharmacy claims are calculated by multiplying 90-day claims (the majority of total mail claims) by 3 and adding the 30-day claims. EBITDA can be reconciled to operating profit, which we believe to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
Following is a reconciliation of operating profit to EBITDA:

Loss from discontinued operations:

In connection with business dispositions completed between 1991 and 1997, the Company continues to guarantee store lease obligations for a number of former subsidiaries, including Linens 'n Things ("Linens"). On May 2, 2008, Linens Holding Co., which operates Linens, filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. As a result, CVS Caremark reported a $48.7 million net loss, or $0.03 per diluted share, from discontinued operations for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2008. The net loss from discontinued operations consists of lease-related costs (net of income tax benefit), which the Company may be required to satisfy pursuant to the guarantee of certain Linens' store lease obligations.

Real estate program

For the quarter, CVS Caremark opened 49 new retail pharmacy stores, closed 8 retail pharmacy stores, and relocated 39 others. As of June 28, 2008, the Company operated 6,308 retail pharmacy stores, 56 specialty pharmacy stores, 19 specialty mail order pharmacies and 7 mail order pharmacies in 44 states and the District of Columbia.

(1) On March 22, 2007, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of November 1, 2006, as amended (the "Merger Agreement"), Caremark Rx, Inc. ("Caremark") was merged with and into a newly formed subsidiary of CVS Corporation, with the CVS subsidiary continuing as the surviving entity. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Caremark shareholders received 1.67 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share of the Corporation for each share of common stock of Caremark, par value $0.001 per share, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the merger. Further, the results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2007 include 101 days of Caremark's results of operations.

(2) In connection with certain business dispositions completed between 1991 and 1997, the Company continues to guarantee approximately 220 store lease obligations for a number of former subsidiaries, including Linen 'n Things. On May 2, 2008, Linens Holding Co., which operates Linens 'n Things, filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The loss from discontinued operations includes $78.8 million of lease-related costs ($48.7 million net of a $30.1 million income tax benefit), which the Company believes it may be required to satisfy pursuant to the lease guarantees. These amounts, which will change as more information becomes available, were calculated in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 146, "Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities."

(3) Diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing (i) net earnings, after accounting for the difference between the dividends on the ESOP preference stock and common stock and after making adjustments for the incentive compensation plans by (ii) Basic shares plus the additional shares that would be issued assuming that all dilutive stock awards are exercised and the ESOP preference stock is converted into common stock. The dilutive earnings adjustment was $1.0 million and $0.8 million for the thirteen-weeks ended June 28, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively. The dilutive earnings adjustment was $1.9 million and $1.9 million for the fiscal years ended June 28, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively.
