Section 8 - Other Events
On December 21, 2020, CVS Health Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), issued press releases announcing the (A) early results and upsize of its previously announced cash tender offers (each, a “Tender Offer” and collectively, the “Tender Offers”) and (B) pricing of the Tender Offers. The Tender Offers were upsized by increasing the Aggregate Maximum Amount (as defined below) of the Tender Offers to $4,500,000,000 from $4,000,000,000 and by increasing the 2025 Notes Maximum Amount (as defined below) to $1,049,919,000 from $1,000,000,000 and the 2028 Notes Maximum Amount (as defined below) to $1,950,081,000 from $1,500,000,000.
The Tender Offers, as amended, consist of (i) up to $1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount (the “2023 Notes Maximum Amount”) of its 4.000% Senior Notes due 2023 and 3.700% Senior Notes due 2023 and the 2.800% Senior Notes due 2023 issued by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Aetna Inc. (collectively, the “2023 Notes”), (ii) up to $1,049,919,000 aggregate principal amount (as increased and amended, the “2025 Notes Maximum Amount”) of its 4.100% Senior Notes due 2025 and 3.875% Senior Notes due 2025 (collectively, the “2025 Notes”) and (iii) up to $1,950,081,000 aggregate principal amount (as increased and amended, the “2028 Notes Maximum Amount”) of its 4.300% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes”, and, together with the 2023 Notes and the 2025 Notes, the “Notes”) validly tendered and accepted for purchase in connection with the Company’s previously announced cash tender offers commenced on December 7, 2020. The sum of the 2023 Notes Maximum Amount, the 2025 Notes Maximum Amount and the 2028 Notes Maximum Amount is $4,500,000,000 (as increased and amended, the “Aggregate Maximum Amount”).
Because the Company expects to accept for purchase the Maximum Aggregate Amount of Notes, no additional Notes are expected to be purchased pursuant to the Tender Offers after December 22, 2020, the early settlement date for such Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase by the Company.
Copies of the press releases are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, which are incorporated by reference herein.
