Express Scripts and Medco Health Solutions Sign Definitive Merger Agreement; Medco Shareholders to Receive $29.1 Billion
Date:7/21/2011

cess stories in American business.  We have each been successful in creating shareholder value because we are both passionate about driving value to our customers through service, innovation and a focus on cost and quality. We have a shared desire to improve the way healthcare is delivered in this country and I believe this creates a strong best-of-breed foundation, culturally, for a very successful merger.

"We continue to have great confidence in moving forward as a stand-alone business, however, the incremental benefits of combining with Express Scripts are both logical and compelling."

Driving Out Pharmacy-Related Waste Creates Value for the Nation's Employers, Health Plans, Unions and Government Agencies

Express Scripts and Medco believe the transaction will deliver value to clients and their members, shareholders, and other stakeholders by:

  • Generating greater cost savings for patients and plan sponsors
  • Creating more efficiency in the supply chain
  • Closing gaps in care and achieving greater adherence through our combined behavioral and clinical approach
  • Utilizing our collective expertise to better manage the cost and care associated with specialty medications
  • Optimizing our ability to respond to an increasingly complex Medicare and Medicaid environment
  • Enhancing mail pharmacy technology to optimize patient care and satisfaction
  • Accelerating the research, development and deployment of trend management solutions to address inefficiencies in the marketplace
  • Continuing to advance evidence-based and safety solutions for innovative pharmaceuticals and biosimilars
  • Advancing our efforts against fraud, waste and abuse
  • Attracting other leading healthcare entities to collaborate on next-generation solutions

Continuing a Legacy of Consumer Advocacy

Express Scripts has a history of serving America
