Express Scripts Announces Final Results of Maximum Tender Offers

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ: ESRX) (the "Company" or "Express Scripts") today announced the final tender results for its previously announced tender offers (the "Maximum Tender Offers") to purchase for cash up to an aggregate principal amount of the debt securities listed in the table below (collectively, the "Notes" and each a "series") that will not result in an aggregate amount that all holders of any such series of Notes are entitled to receive, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, for their Notes of such series that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Maximum Tender Offers exceeding the applicable Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount set forth in the table below. The Maximum Tender Offers were made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated June 29, 2016, as amended by the Company's press releases dated July 14, 2016 announcing the pricing and the early tender results of the Maximum Tender Offers, and the related letter of transmittal (as they may each be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Tender Offer Documents"). The Company refers investors to the Tender Offer Documents for the complete terms and conditions of the Maximum Tender Offers.

As of the expiration date of 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 27, 2016 (the "Expiration Date"), according to information provided by Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the depositary and information agent for the Maximum Tender Offers, $368.6 million aggregate principal amount of the 7.125% senior notes due 2018 ("2018 Notes"), $162.6 million aggregate principal amount of the 7.250% senior notes due 2019 ("2019 Notes") and $316.5 million aggregate principal amount of the 6.125% senior notes due 2041 ("2041 Notes") had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Maximum Tender Offers. This includes $0.1 million aggregate principal amount of 2018 Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn following the early tender date of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 13, 2016 (the "Early Tender Date"). No additional 2019 Notes or 2041 Notes were tendered following the Early Tender Date. The table below sets forth the aggregate principal amount and percentage of Notes of each series validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.

The Company has accepted for purchase all 2018 Notes and all 2019 Notes that have been tendered and not validly withdrawn. Because the aggregate principal amount of 2041 Notes tendered and not validly withdrawn would result in an aggregate amount that all holders of 2041 Notes are entitled to receive, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, for their 2041 Notes exceeding the applicable Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount set forth in the table above, the Company has not accepted for purchase all 2041 Notes that have been tendered. Rather, the Company has accepted 2041 Notes on a prorated basis, using a proration rate of approximately 0.7945. In aggregate, the Company will spend $902.1 million (excluding accrued and unpaid interest) to purchase Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase by the Company in the Maximum Tender Offers.
