Acquisition of Trigon Healthcare, Inc.


On July 31, 2002, the Company completed its purchase of 100% of the outstanding stock of Trigon Healthcare, Inc. (“Trigon”). Trigon was Virginia’s largest health care company and was the Blue Cross and Blue Shield licensee in Virginia, excluding the immediate suburbs of Washington, D.C.


Trigon’s shareholders each received consideration of thirty dollars in cash and 1.062 shares of the Company’s common stock for each Trigon share outstanding. The purchase price was $4,038.1 and included cash of $1,104.3, the issuance of approximately 39.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock, valued at $2,708.1, Trigon stock options converted into Company stock options for approximately 3.9 million shares, valued at $195.5 and $30.2 of transaction costs. On July 31, 2002, the Company issued $950.0 of long-term senior unsecured notes which were used, along with the sale of investment securities and available cash, to fund the cash portion of the purchase price.


In accordance with FAS 141, the purchase price was allocated to the fair value of Trigon assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including identifiable intangible assets. The excess of purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired resulted in $2,146.1 of non-tax deductible goodwill, which is allocated to the Health Care segment.
