The Notes are being offered pursuant to the Companys Registration Statement on Form S-3, File No. 333-205156, declared effective on July 2, 2015.
From time to time, certain of the Underwriters and/or their respective affiliates have directly and indirectly engaged, and may engage in the future, in investment and/or commercial banking transactions with the Company for which they have received, or may receive, customary compensation, fees and expense reimbursement. For example, in connection with the acquisition by CVS Pharmacy, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, of Omnicare, Inc. and the pharmacy and clinic assets of Target Corporation, Barclays Capital Inc. has acted as the Companys financial advisor. In addition, affiliates of certain of the Underwriters have also agreed to provide interim financing to the Company under certain circumstances (and subject to customary conditions) in the event the offering of the Notes is not consummated, for which these Underwriters and/or their respective affiliates will be paid customary fees, the commitments of which will be reduced to zero in connection with the closing of the offering. Barclays Bank PLC acts as administrative agent for such interim financing. An affiliate of one of the Underwriters, BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC, is acting as trustee for the Notes.
The closing of the sale of the Notes will occur on July 20, 2015, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions contained in the Underwriting Agreement. The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Notes, after deducting the Underwriters discounts and the estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, are approximately $14,813,637,500.
A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
