  • Reconfirmed full-year free cash flow guidance of $4.6 to $4.9 billion and cash flow from operations of $6.2 to $6.4 billion
  • RevenuesNet revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012, increased 19.9% or $5.1 billion, to $30.8 billion, up from $25.7 billion in the three months ended March 31, 2011.

    Revenues in the Pharmacy Services segment increased 32.3% to $18.3 billion in the three months ended March 31, 2012. This increase was primarily associated with new activity resulting from our acquisition of the Medicare prescription drug plan of Universal American Corp. ("UAM Medicare PDP Business") in the second quarter of 2011, new client starts associated with our highly successful 2011 selling season, and drug cost inflation. Pharmacy network claims processed during the three months ended March 31, 2012, increased 25.9% to 198.5 million, compared to 157.7 million in the prior year period. The increase in pharmacy network claims was primarily due to the Company's 2011 acquisition of the UAM Medicare PDP Business, as well as new client starts. Mail choice claims processed during the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased approximately 16.6% to 20.4 million compared to 17.5 million in the prior year period. The increase in the mail choice claim volume was primarily driven by new client starts and the continued adoption of our Maintenance Choice® program.

    Revenues in the Retail Pharmacy segment increased 9.9% to $16.0 billion in the three months ended March 31, 2012. Same store sales increased 8.4% over the prior year period, with pharmacy same store sales increasing 9.8% over the prior year period. This increase in pharmacy same store sales included a significant benefit associated with Walgreens no longer being part of the Express Scripts pharmacy provider network as of January 1, 2012. Calendar day shifts in the first quarter of 2012, which had one additional weekday compared with the same period in 2011, positively impacted pharmacy same store sales by approximately 50 basis points; while the extra day in 2012 due to leap year had a positive impact on pharmacy same store sales of approximately 75 basis points. Additionally, pharmacy same store prescription volumes rose 7.2% when 90-day scripts are counted as one script. When converting 90-day scripts into 3 scripts, our same store prescription volumes increased 9.2% in the quarter. Pharmacy same store sales were negatively impacted by approximately 305 basis points due to recent generic introductions. Pharmacy same store sales were also negatively impacted by a weak flu season, which was partially offset by the early onset of the allergy season. Front store same store sales increased 5.3% in the three months ended March 31, 2012, and were positively impacted by approximately 120 basis points from the one extra day due to leap year.

    For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the generic dispensing rate increased approximately 270 basis points to 76.5% in our Pharmacy Services segment and 290 basis points to 78.1% in our Retail Pharmacy segment, compared to the prior year period.

    Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to CVS CaremarkIncome from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark for the three months ended March 31, 2012, increased $67 million to $777 million, compared with $710 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark was primarily driven by an 18.4% increase in operating profit in our Retail Pharmacy segment. Our retail business benefited significantly from the continuing contractual impasse between Walgreens and Express Scripts, the extra day due to leap year, and the continued growth of our popular Maintenance Choice program. Additionally, effective January 1, 2012, the Company changed its methods of accounting for prescription drug inventories in the Retail Pharmacy segment, which resulted in an after tax benefit of approximately $19 million, or approximately one cent per share, during the first quarter. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark ("Adjusted EPS") for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $0.65 and $0.57, respectively. Adjusted EPS excludes $118 million and $106 million of intangible asset amortization related to acquisition activity in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $0.59 and $0.52, respectively.

    Larry Merlo, president and CEO, stated: "We posted an outstanding first quarter with strong results across the board. Results in both our retail and PBM segments came in at the high end of our guidance, while EPS exceeded expectations. We also generated $2.4 billion in free cash during the quarter, which places us comfortably on track to achieve our goal for the year."

    Mr. Merlo continued, "Our retail team has done an outstanding job capitalizing on the unprecedented opportunity for share gains afforded to us by the impasse between two of our industry peers. At the same time, while it is still early in the 2013 PBM selling season, we're optimistic about the opportunities and continue to feel very good about our position in the marketplace. With our stable business and unmatched breadth of capabilities, we are very well positioned for success in the 2013 and 2014 selling seasons."

    Real Estate ProgramDuring the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company opened 32 new retail drugstores and closed seven retail drugstores and one onsite pharmacy. In addition, the Company relocated 40 retail drugstores. As of March 31, 2012, the Company operated 7,428 locations, including 7,352 retail drugstores, 29 onsite pharmacies, 31 retail specialty pharmacy stores, 12 specialty mail order pharmacies and four mail order pharmacies in 44 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

    GuidanceThe Company raised its earnings guidance for the full year 2012 to reflect the solid first quarter performance and the anticipated benefit to second quarter results of approximately $0.03 to $0.04 per share from the continuing impasse between Walgreens and Express Scripts. The guidance adjustment reflects the potential estimated benefit if the stalemate continues only through the end of the second quarter and does not contemplate any potential benefit beyond the second quarter. Based on these assumptions, the Company currently expects to deliver Adjusted EPS of $3.23 to $3.33 and GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $3.01 to $3.11 per share in 2012. The Company now expects the Retail Pharmacy segment's operating profit to increase between 10.5% and 12.5%, up from a range of 8.5% to 10.5%, while the Pharmacy Services segment's operating profit growth is still expected to increase between 11% and 15%. The Company reiterated its 2012 free cash flow guidance and expects to generate between $4.6 billion and $4.9 billion. Further, the Company confirmed that it expects to generate cash flow from operations in 2012 in the range of $6.2 billion to $6.4 billion. These 2012 guidance estimates assume the completion of $3.0 billion in previously authorized share repurchases.

    Adjusted Earnings Per Share
    (Unaudited) 

    For internal comparisons, management finds it useful to assess year-to-year performance by adjusting diluted earnings per share for amortization, which primarily relates to acquisition activities.

    The Company defines adjusted earnings per share as income before income tax provision plus amortization, less adjusted income tax provision, plus net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest divided by the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

    The following is a reconciliation of income before income tax provision to adjusted earnings per share:

    The adjusted results for the three months ended March 31, 2011 have been revised to reflect the results of TheraCom as discontinued operations. Free Cash Flow
    (Unaudited)The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less net additions to properties and equipment (i.e., additions to property and equipment plus proceeds from sale-leaseback transactions).

    Net revenues of the Pharmacy Services segment include approximately $2.3 billion and $2.2 billion of retail co-payments for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.(2)
    Intersegment eliminations relate to two types of transactions: (i) Intersegment revenues that occur when Pharmacy Services segment customers use Retail Pharmacy segment stores to purchase covered products. When this occurs, both the Pharmacy Services and Retail Pharmacy segments record the revenue on a standalone basis, and (ii) Intersegment revenues, gross profit and operating profit that occur when Pharmacy Services segment customers, through the Company's intersegment activities (such as the Maintenance Choice program), elect to pick-up their maintenance prescriptions at Retail Pharmacy segment stores instead of receiving them through the mail. When this occurs, both the Pharmacy Services and Retail Pharmacy segments record the revenue, gross profit and operating profit on a standalone basis. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011, the Maintenance Choice eliminations reflect all discounts available for the purchase of mail order prescription drugs. The following amounts are eliminated in consolidation in connection with the item (ii) intersegment activity: net revenues of $798 million and $558 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, gross profit and operating profit of $75 million and $35 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.(3)
    The results of the Pharmacy Services segment for the three months ended March 31, 2011 have been revised to reflect the results of TheraCom as discontinued operations.

    Mail choice is defined as claims filled at a Pharmacy Services' mail facility, which include specialty mail claims, as well as 90-day claims filled at retail under the Maintenance Choice program. (3)
    Pharmacy network is defined as claims filled at retail pharmacies, including our retail drugstores, but excluding Maintenance Choice activity.(4)
    The results of the Pharmacy Services segment for the three months ended March 31, 2011 have been revised to reflect the results of TheraCom as discontinued operations. EBITDA and EBITDA per Adjusted Claim
    (Unaudited)The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. 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.

The Company strongly recommends that you become familiar with the specific risks and uncertainties outlined under the Risk Factors section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and under the section entitled "Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements" in our most recently filed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
