  • Retail pharmacy same store prescription volumes increased 1.4%, or 4.5% on a 30-day equivalent basis
  • Retail pharmacy same store sales increased 5.7%; total same store sales increased 3.6%
  • Year-to-date Highlights:

  • Generated free cash flow of $3.1 billion
  • Cash flow from operations of $4.2 billion
  • 2013 Guidance Raised and Narrowed:

  • Full-year Adjusted EPS range to $3.98 to $4.01 and GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations range to $3.73 to $3.76; both including the gain from a legal settlement
  • Full-year Adjusted EPS range to $3.94 to $3.97, excluding the gain from a legal settlement
  • Full year free cash flow at $4.8 to $5.1 billion; cash flow from operations at $6.4 to $6.6 billion
  • RevenuesNet revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2013, increased 5.8%, or $1.7 billion, to $32.0 billion compared to the three months ended September 30, 2012.

    Revenues in the Pharmacy Services Segment increased 7.8%, or $1.4 billion, to $19.5 billion in the three months ended September 30, 2013. The increase was primarily driven by broad-based growth of claims as well as drug cost inflation in the specialty pharmacy business, partially offset by the impact of recent generic drug introductions. Pharmacy network claims processed during the three months ended September 30, 2013, increased 2.0% to 200.9 million, compared to 197.0 million in the prior year period. The increase in pharmacy network claims was primarily due to additional claims activity associated with new clients. Mail choice claims processed during the three months ended September 30, 2013, increased approximately 3.1% to 21.0 million, compared to 20.4 million in the prior year period. The increase in the mail choice claim volume was primarily due to increased claims associated with the continuing adoption of our Maintenance Choice® offerings.

    Revenues in the Retail Pharmacy Segment increased 5.0%, or $780 million, to $16.3 billion in the three months ended September 30, 2013. Same store sales increased 3.6% when compared to the prior year period, with pharmacy same store sales up 5.7% and front store same store sales down 1.0%. Despite the decline in front store same store sales, which was driven by softer traffic, both front store basket size and front store margin improved modestly during the quarter. The increase in same store sales was primarily driven by the growth of prescription volumes, partially offset by the impact of recent generic drug introductions. Pharmacy same store prescription volumes rose 1.4% when 90-day prescriptions are counted as one prescription, and increased 4.5% on a 30-day equivalent basis (when 90-day prescriptions are counted as three prescriptions). Pharmacy same store sales were negatively impacted by approximately 320 basis points due to recent generic drug introductions.

    For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the generic dispensing rate increased approximately 170 basis points in the Pharmacy Services Segment, to 81.0%, and approximately 160 basis points in the Retail Pharmacy Segment, to 81.5%, 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 September 30, 2013, increased 24.6%, or approximately $249 million, to $1.3 billion, compared with $1.0 billion during the three months ended September 30, 2012. The Pharmacy Services and Retail Pharmacy segments both benefited from the impact of increased generic drugs dispensed and the continued growth of our Maintenance Choice program. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark (Adjusted EPS) for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, was $1.09 and $0.85, respectively, an increase of 28.1%. Adjusted EPS in the third quarter of 2013 includes a pre-tax gain from a legal settlement of $72 million (approximately $0.04 per share). Excluding the gain from the legal settlement, Adjusted EPS increased 23.9% in the third quarter to $1.05. Adjusted EPS in the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, excludes $124 million and $121 million, respectively, of intangible asset amortization related to acquisition activity. GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to CVS Caremark for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, was $1.03 and $0.79, respectively, an increase of 29.5%. GAAP earnings per share also includes the impact of the legal settlement in the third quarter of 2013.

    President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Merlo stated: "Our third quarter results reflect strong operating performance across the enterprise.  Adjusted earnings per share excluding the settlement gain exceeded the high end of our guidance by 2 cents per share, primarily reflecting better-than-expected third quarter performance in the PBM.  We are well on track for another year of strong growth in 2013."

    Mr. Merlo continued, "Year-to-date, we have also generated significant free cash, which we will continue to use to enhance shareholder value. Between dividends and share repurchases, we expect to return $5 billion to our shareholders in 2013."

    Real Estate ProgramDuring the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company opened 49 new retail drugstores, and closed one retail drugstore. In addition, the Company relocated 22 retail drugstores. As of September 30, 2013, the Company operated 7,665 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Brazil. These locations included 7,601 retail drugstores, 18 onsite pharmacies, 30 retail specialty pharmacy stores, 12 specialty mail order pharmacies and four mail service pharmacies.

    GuidanceThe Company raised and narrowed its earnings guidance range for the full year 2013, reflecting year-to-date results that exceeded expectations. The Company now expects to deliver Adjusted EPS of $3.98 to $4.01 and GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $3.73 to $3.76 in 2013, both including the gain from the legal settlement in the third quarter. Excluding the gain from the legal settlement, the Company expects to deliver Adjusted EPS of $3.94 to $3.97 in 2013. The Company also continues to expect to deliver 2013 free cash flow of $4.8 billion to $5.1 billion, and 2013 cash flow from operations guidance of $6.4 billion to $6.6 billion.

     Adjusted Earnings Per Share

    (1)

    Net revenues of the Pharmacy Services Segment include approximately $1.9 billion and $2.0 billion of retail co-payments for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, as well as $6.1 billion and $6.4 billion of retail co-payments for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.(2)

    Intersegment eliminations relate to two types of transaction: (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. The following amounts are eliminated in consolidation in connection with the item (ii) intersegment activity: net revenues of $1.1 billion and $841 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $3.1 billion and $2.5 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively; gross profit and operating profit of $143 million and $106 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $409 million and $279 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.(3)

    Consolidated operating profit for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 includes a $72 million gain on a legal settlement, of which, $11 million is included in the Pharmacy Services Segment and $61 million is included in the Retail Pharmacy Segment.
