Recent Developments

CVS Health completes acquisition of Oak Street Health1

May 2, 2023; CVS Health announced it has completed its acquisition of Oak Street Health.

The acquisition will broaden CVS Health’s value-based primary care platform and significantly benefit patients’ long-term health by improving outcomes and reducing costs – particularly for those in underserved communities.

Earlier in the year CVS Health announced it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Oak Street Health in an all-cash transaction for $39 per share, representing an enterprise value of approximately $10.6 billion. The company financed the transaction with borrowings of $5.0 billion from a term loan agreement entered into on May 1, 2023, and existing cash and available resources. CVS Health is committed to maintaining its current credit ratings.

Oak Street Health will continue to operate as a multi-payor primary care provider as part of CVS Health.

CVS Health completes acquisition of Signify Health2

March 29, 2023 — CVS Health announced that it has completed its acquisition of Signify Health.

Signify Health is a leading technology and services company, focused on provider enablement and bringing clinicians into the home to identify chronic conditions, close gaps in care, and address social determinants of health. Signify has a network of more than 10,000 clinicians in all 50 states, who spend an average of 2.5 times longer with a member during home visits than an average visit with a primary care provider.

The combined company will work to improve care delivery capabilities, lower costs, improve levels of engagement and enable broad access to high-quality care, especially for Medicare Advantage customers. Signify clinicians can have an even greater impact by engaging with CVS Health's unique collection of assets and connecting consumers to care how and when they need it.

Under the terms of the transaction, each outstanding share of Signify Health common stock is being exchanged for $30.50 in cash, representing a total transaction value of approximately $8 billion. CVS Health funded the transaction price with existing cash and available resources and is committed to maintaining its current credit ratings.


Financial Highlights

First Quarter 2023 Results

May 3, 2023; CVS Health Corporation announced operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.3

Total revenues increased to $85.3 billion, up 11.0% compared to prior year

GAAP diluted EPS of $1.65 and Adjusted EPS of $2.20

Generated cash flow from operations of $7.4 billion

Operating income decreased 2.8% primarily due to the write-down of the Company’s Omnicare® long-term care business (“LTC business”), the decrease in adjusted operating income described below and an increase in acquisition-related transaction and integration costs compared to the prior year. The decrease in operating income was partially offset by the absence of a $484 million opioid litigation charge recorded in the prior year and a decrease in amortization of intangible assets compared to the prior year.

Interest expense remained relatively consistent, increasing to $589 million from $586 million.

Effective for the first quarter of 2023, the Company realigned the composition of its segments to correspond with changes made to its operating model and how the business is managed. As a result of this realignment, the Company formed a new Health Services segment, which in addition to providing a full range of pharmacy benefit management (“PBM”) solutions, also delivers health care services in the Company’s medical clinics, virtually, and in the home, as well as provider enablement solutions. In addition, the Company created a new Pharmacy & Consumer Wellness segment, which includes its retail and long-term care pharmacy operations and related pharmacy services, as well as its retail front store operations. This segment will also provide pharmacy fulfillment services to support the Health Services segment’s specialty and mail order pharmacy offerings. The Company also discontinued its former segment reporting practice for activity under its Maintenance Choice® program as described within the supplemental information beginning on page 15. Following this segment realignment, the Company’s four reportable segments are: Health Care Benefits, Health Services, Pharmacy & Consumer Wellness and Corporate/Other.

Effective January 1, 2023, the Company adopted a new accounting standard related to the accounting for long- duration insurance contracts using a modified retrospective transition method.
