Cardinal Health to Reduce Workforce to Respond to Economic Conditions
Date:3/31/2009

DUBLIN, Ohio, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardinal Health today announced that its Clinical and Medical Products businesses that are expected to be spun off later this year as CareFusion Corporation, will reduce its global workforce by approximately 800 over six months and eliminate an additional 500 positions through normal attrition and not filling open roles.

In addition, Cardinal Health will implement cost control measures and additional reductions in discretionary spending across all of its businesses, primarily in response to a delay in hospital capital spending and the overall decline in the global economy.

"While many companies have taken similar actions to respond to the current economic realities, these are very difficult decisions because of their effect on our employees and their families," said R. Kerry Clark, Cardinal Health chairman and chief executive officer. "However, these measures are necessary to help offset current economic conditions and will ultimately strengthen our businesses for the longer-term."

As part of the workforce reduction, Cardinal Health expects to record a restructuring charge of approximately $33 million for the remainder of fiscal 2009 and an additional charge of approximately $24 million in fiscal 2010. The company estimates this action will deliver annual savings of approximately $110 million to $130 million within two years.
