n families and providing affordable benefits to businesses in a globally competitive marketplace to lower the cost of medications and to ensure their safety and accessibility.   For example, by 2014, spending for specialty medicines for diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and hepatitis is estimated to comprise 40% of U.S. drug spend.  By combining each organization's innovative specialty patient care programs, Express Scripts will be well positioned to meet the challenges in this critical area of healthcare.

The pharmaceutical landscape is dynamic and complex. Change is constant and challenges remain in product safety, efficacy, distribution channels and the overall economics. Consumer advocacy is required. The combined company will be well equipped to create more efficiency in the supply chain to better serve employers and the American families that utilize their pharmacy benefit.

Market Dynamics / Competition

Express Scripts and Medco believe they will be successful working through the regulatory review process. Competition in the pharmacy benefit management (PBM) business is intense.  Competition comes from several sources, including retail pharmacy PBMs, managed care PBMs, independent PBMs and specialized PBMs.  The PBM business will continue to remain competitive after this transaction, as PBMs will continually drive for greater efficiencies to provide better service and pricing to their customers.  

Terms of the Transaction

Under the terms of the agreement, Express Scripts shall form a new holding company called Express Scripts Holding Company.  Medco shareholders will receive $28.80 in cash and 0.81 shares of Express Scripts Holding Company for each Medco share they own upon closing of the transaction, and Express Scripts shareholders will become shareholders of Express Scripts Holding Company receiving one share of the new holding company for each share of Express Script
