Notes to Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Statements
(Dollars in millions)
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet as of September 30, 2006 combines the unaudited consolidated balance sheets of CVS and Caremark as of September 30, 2006 and gives effect to the merger as if it occurred on September 30, 2006.
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2005 and for the nine month period ended September 30, 2006 give effect to the merger as if it occurred on the first day of each period presented.
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements which are referred to as pro forma financial statements are based on the historical financial statements of CVS and Caremark, as well as financial information for the acquisition CVS completed on June 2, 2006, and give effect to the merger between CVS and Caremark under the purchase method of accounting. As a result, the pro forma financial statements are based on assumptions and adjustments, including assumptions relating to the consideration paid and the allocation thereof to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed from Caremark based on preliminary estimates of fair value. The final purchase price and the allocation thereof will differ from that reflected in the pro forma financial statements after valuation procedures are performed and amounts are finalized following the completion of the merger.
The pro forma adjustments are preliminary and have been made solely for purposes of developing the pro forma financial statements for illustrative purposes. The mergers impact on the actual results reported by the combined company in periods following the merger may differ significantly from that reflected in these pro forma financial statements. The pro forma financial statements do not give effect to the post-closing accelerated share repurchase transaction discussed under The Merger Accelerated Share Repurchase Transaction as found in CVS Registration Statement No. l 333-139470 on Form S-4/A filed January 18, 2007. In addition, the pro forma financial statements do not give effect to any potential cost savings or operating synergies that CVS and Caremark expect to result from the merger, nor do they give effect to any potential costs to be incurred in integrating the two companies.
