of 10-year senior notes. Medco used the net proceeds from the sale of these senior notes to repay borrowings under its revolving credit facility used to fund the PolyMedica acquisition.

Share Repurchase Program

In conjunction with its $5.5 billion share repurchase program, Medco repurchased 21 million shares at a cost of $1 billion during the first quarter, representing an average per-share cost of $47.55. From the inception of the share repurchase program in 2005 through the end of the first quarter of 2008, Medco has repurchased 132.4 million shares at a total cost of $4.5 billion, with an average per-share cost of $34.10.

Specialty Pharmacy Segment

Revenues for Medco's specialty pharmacy segment, Accredo Health Group, achieved a new record and grew 30.3 percent to nearly $1.9 billion, compared to $1.4 billion in the first quarter of 2007, primarily the result of the contribution from significant new clients commencing in January 2008, and the addition of Critical Care Systems in fourth-quarter 2007.

Gross margin in first-quarter 2008 of 7.7 percent declined from 8.0 percent in first-quarter 2007, reflecting new client mix and start-up costs from new client installations. Operating income rose 19.1 percent, to $63.7 million from $53.5 million in the first quarter of 2007, driven by increased mail-order volume from the new business.

Reaffirming 2008 Guidance

For full-year 2008, Medco continues to expect GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $2.07-$2.11, representing growth of 27-29 percent over 2007. Diluted earnings per share in 2008, excluding the effect of amortization of intangibles that existed when Medco became a public company, continue to be projected in the range of $2.27-$2.31, a growth rate of 25-27 percent over 2007. (Please see Table 9 for a reconciliation of earnings per share guidance).
