Forbes Counts Medco As One of The 'Most Trustworthy Companies'
Date:4/6/2009

Proof's in the Numbers: Rating Based on Quality Accounting and Management

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --While current market turmoil has investors wondering about the safety of their savings, Forbes listed Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) as one of "The 100 Most Trustworthy Companies." Forbes published its listing based upon Audit Integrity's ranking of corporate accounting and management practices.

"When we took our company public more than five years ago, our intent was to redefine our industry through clinical excellence, innovation, transparency and accountability," Chairman and CEO David B. Snow Jr. said. "We are honored by Forbes' recognition as one of the most trustworthy companies in America. We are, however, even more delighted by the confidence expressed in our company and our people by our clients and members, who on a daily basis rely on Medco as their trusted healthcare advisor."

Audit Integrity has provided Forbes with its list of the most trustworthy companies for three years, where it judged companies for having "consistently shown transparent and conservative accounting practices and solid corporate governance and management. These companies do not play games with revenue and expense recognition, or with asset valuation," the Forbes article said. Audit Integrity, an independent financial analytics company in Los Angeles, scans more than 8,000 companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges and assigns each an accounting and governance risk (AGR) score.

Medco's score placed it among the top ten large-cap publicly traded companies with Loews, Consolidated Edison, Kohl's, and Linear Technology. Companies with higher scores have generally outperformed the market and have shown less share price volatility, according to Audit Integrity. Low accounting and governance risk scores "have been proven to carry a much higher risk profile," leading to higher odds of SEC enforcement actions, delayed financial reporting, shareholder lawsuits and bankruptcy, Audit Integrity said.
