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

s that they own upon closing.  Based on the closing price of Express Scripts stock of $52.54 as of July 20, 2011, the stock component is valued at $42.56 per share, which, when combined with the $28.80 in cash brings the total value per share to Medco shareholders of $71.36. This represents a premium to Medco shareholders of 28 percent over Medco's closing share price on July 20, 2011.  Upon closing of the transaction, Express Scripts shareholders are expected to own approximately 59 percent of the combined company and Medco shareholders are expected to own approximately 41 percent.

The transaction provides certain value to Medco shareholders through the cash component, as well as continued participation in the future prospects expected to result from the combination through their ownership of approximately 41 percent of Express Scripts Holding Company shares.

The merger is subject to regulatory clearance and Express Scripts' and Medco's shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions.  The terms of the merger agreement provide for the payment of termination fees in certain circumstances, but not in connection with the failure to obtain regulatory clearance. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2012.

The corporate headquarters will be in St. Louis and George Paz will serve as chairman and CEO of the combined organization. The Board of Directors will be expanded to include two current independent Medco board members.

The new company will draw upon the collective talent at both companies. The combination of Express Scripts and Medco will create a best-of-breed enterprise that will harness the experience and expertise of each organization to ensure that customers and patients benefit fully from their complementary capabilities to lower the total cost of healthcare, drive quality outcomes and accelerate the delivery of advanced healthcare solutions.
