  • Total revenues and adjusted revenues (3) increased 35.2% and 35.8%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year. Revenue growth was primarily driven by the acquisition of Aetna Inc. ("Aetna"), which the Company acquired on November 28, 2018 (the "Aetna Acquisition"), as well as increased volume and brand name drug price inflation in both the Pharmacy Services and Retail/LTC segments. The revenue increase was partially offset by continued reimbursement pressure in the Retail/LTC segment, price compression in the Pharmacy Services segment, and an increased generic dispensing rate.
  • Operating expenses and adjusted operating expenses (4) increased 65.2% and 59.1%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year. The increase in operating expenses is due to the impact of the Aetna Acquisition, an increase in intangible amortization related to the Aetna Acquisition and an increase in acquisition-related integration costs. The increase in adjusted operating expenses was primarily driven by the impact of the Aetna Acquisition.
  • Operating income and adjusted operating income increased 342.7% and 55.1%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year. The increase in both operating income and adjusted operating income was primarily due to the Aetna Acquisition as well as increased claims volume and improved purchasing economics in the Pharmacy Services segment. These increases were partially offset by reimbursement pressure and the investment of a portion of the savings from tax reform in wages and benefits in the Retail/LTC segment and continued price compression in the Pharmacy Services segment. The increase in operating income was also due to the absence of the $3.9 billion pre-tax goodwill impairment charge related to the LTC reporting unit within the Retail/LTC segment recorded in the three months ended June 30, 2018, partially offset by higher intangible asset amortization related to the Aetna Acquisition.
  • Net income increased 175.3% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily due to higher operating income described above, partially offset by (i) higher interest expense primarily due to financing activity associated with the Aetna Acquisition and the assumption of Aetna's debt as of the Aetna Acquisition date and (ii) higher income tax expense associated with the increase in pre-tax income.
  • The effective income tax rate was 25.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to (24.1)% for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The difference in the effective income tax rate compared to the prior year was primarily due to the $3.9 billion goodwill impairment charge recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2018, which was not deductible for income tax purposes.

Pharmacy Services Segment

The Pharmacy Services segment provides a full range of pharmacy benefit management services to employers, health plans, government employee groups and government sponsored programs. The segment results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 were as follows:

  • Total revenues increased 4.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily due to brand name drug price inflation as well as increased total pharmacy claims volume, partially offset by continued price compression and an increased generic dispensing rate.
  • Total pharmacy claims processed increased 4.0% on a 30-day equivalent basis for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year, primarily driven by net new business and the continued adoption of Maintenance Choice® offerings.
  • Operating income and adjusted operating income increased 9.6% and 9.7%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily driven by increased claims volume and improved purchasing economics, partially offset by continued price compression. The increase in operating income was also partially offset by increased intangible amortization related to Aetna's mail order and specialty pharmacy operations.

See the supplemental information on page 21 for additional information regarding the performance of the Pharmacy Services segment.

Retail/LTC Segment

The Retail/LTC segment fulfills prescriptions for medications, provides patient care programs, sells a wide-assortment of general merchandise, provides health care services through walk-in clinics and provides services to long-term care facilities.

  • Total revenues increased 3.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by increased prescription volume and brand name drug price inflation, partially offset by continued reimbursement pressure and the impact of generic drug introductions.
  • Front store revenues represent approximately 22.7% of total Retail/LTC segment revenues. Front store revenues increased in the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily driven by increases in health product sales, which benefited from an extended cough and cold season and the impact of the shift of sales associated with the Easter holiday from the first quarter of 2018 to the second quarter of 2019.
  • Total prescription volume grew 5.9%, on a 30-day equivalent basis, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year. The growth was driven mainly by the continued adoption of patient care programs, collaborations with PBMs and the Company's preferred status in a number of Medicare Part D networks.
  • Operating income increased 169.7% and adjusted operating income decreased 8.3%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in operating income was primarily due to the absence of the $3.9 billion pre-tax goodwill impairment charge related to the LTC reporting unit recorded in the three months ended June 30, 2018. Operating income and adjusted operating income were both negatively impacted by (i) continued reimbursement pressure, (ii) increased operating expenses primarily driven by the investment of a portion of the savings from tax reform in wages and benefits and (iii) declining year-over-year performance in the Company's long-term care business.

See the supplemental information on page 22 for additional information regarding the performance of the Retail/LTC segment.

Health Care Benefits Segment

The Health Care Benefits segment provides a full range of insured and self-insured ("ASC") medical, pharmacy, dental and behavioral health products and services. For periods prior to the Aetna Acquisition, the Health Care Benefits segment consisted solely of the Company's SilverScript® Medicare Part D prescription drug plan ("PDP") business. The segment results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 were as follows:

_______________________________

(a)

The Health Care Benefits segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 consisted solely of the Company's SilverScript PDP business. Accordingly, the MBRs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not meaningful (NM) and are not directly comparable to the MBRs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

  • Total revenues increased $16.6 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily driven by the Aetna Acquisition.
  • Operating income and adjusted operating income increased $1.1 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year primarily driven by the Aetna Acquisition. The increase in operating income was partially offset by an increase in intangible amortization related to the Aetna Acquisition. Operating income and adjusted operating income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 reflect the seasonality of earnings for the Company's SilverScript PDP business. The quarterly earnings of the Company's SilverScript PDP business generally increase as the year progresses.
  • Medical membership as of June 30, 2019 of 22.8 million remained consistent compared with March 31, 2019, reflecting increases in Medicare and Medicaid products, offset by declines in Commercial products.
  • The Health Care Benefits segment experienced favorable development of prior-periods' health care cost estimates in its Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid products, primarily attributable to first quarter 2019 performance and provider recoveries.
  • Prior years' health care costs payable estimates developed favorably by $489 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019. This development is reported on a basis consistent with the prior years' development reported in the health care costs payable table in the Company's annual audited financial statements, and does not directly correspond to an increase in 2019 operating results.

See the supplemental information on page 23 for additional information regarding the performance of the Health Care Benefits segment.

2019 Full Year Guidance

The Company confirmed its full year 2019 consolidated GAAP operating income guidance range of $11.8 billion to $12.0 billion and raised the guidance range for full year adjusted operating income to $15.2 billion to $15.4 billion from $15.0 billion to $15.2 billion. The Company also raised and narrowed the GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations guidance range to $4.93 to $5.04 from $4.90 to $5.05, and raised and narrowed the Adjusted EPS guidance range to $6.89 to $7.00 from $6.75 to $6.90.

The Company also provided guidance for the third quarter of 2019. GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations is projected to be in the range of $1.16 to $1.20, and Adjusted EPS is projected to be in the range of $1.75 to $1.79.

The adjustments between GAAP operating income and GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations and adjusted operating income and Adjusted EPS include adding back amortization of intangible assets, integration costs related to the Aetna Acquisition, a store rationalization charge and expected gains/losses on divestitures.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted operating income, adjusted earnings per share (EPS), adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health, adjusted revenues and adjusted operating expenses exclude from the relevant GAAP metrics, as applicable: amortization of intangible assets and other items, if any, that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance.

For the periods covered in this press release, the following items are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures described above, as applicable, because the Company believes they neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance:

  • Intangible assets relate to the Company's acquisition activities and are amortized over their useful lives. The amortization of intangible assets is reflected in the Company's unaudited GAAP condensed consolidated statements of operations in operating expenses within each segment. The amortization of intangible assets is not directly related to the core performance of the Company's business operations since this amortization does not directly relate to the underwriting of the Company's insurance products, the services performed for the Company's customers or the sale of the Company's products or services. Subsequent to the applicable acquisition date, the Company's revenues and results of operations include the results of each of the Company's acquisitions, which are supported by these intangible assets.
  • During the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, acquisition-related transaction and integration costs relate to the Aetna Acquisition. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, acquisition-related integration costs also relate to the acquisition of Omnicare, Inc. The acquisition-related transaction and integration costs are reflected in the Company's unaudited GAAP condensed consolidated statements of operations in operating expenses primarily within the Corporate/Other segment.
  • During the six months ended June 30, 2019, the store rationalization charge primarily relates to operating lease right-of-use asset impairment charges in connection with the planned closure of 46 underperforming retail pharmacy stores in the second quarter of 2019. The store rationalization charge is reflected in the Company's unaudited GAAP condensed consolidated statements of operations in operating expenses within the Retail/LTC segment.
  • During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the goodwill impairment charge relates to the LTC reporting unit within the Retail/LTC segment.
  • During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the loss on divestiture of subsidiary represents the pre-tax loss on the sale of the Company's RxCrossroads subsidiary for $725 million and is reflected in operating expenses in the Company's unaudited GAAP condensed consolidated statement of operations within the Retail/LTC segment.
  • During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded interest expense of $441 million and $714 million, respectively, related to bridge financing costs and interest expense on the $40 billion of senior notes issued on March 9, 2018 ("2018 Notes"). The interest expense was reduced by related interest income of $202 million and $244 million, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, on the proceeds of the 2018 Notes. All amounts are for the periods prior to the close of the Aetna Acquisition and were recorded within the Corporate/Other segment.
  • The corresponding tax benefit or expense related to the items excluded from adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health and Adjusted EPS above. The nature of each non-GAAP adjustment is evaluated to determine whether a discrete adjustment should be made to the adjusted income tax provision.

The Company's third-quarter and full year 2019 guidance reconciliations also reflect an estimated loss on divestiture of the Company's Brazilian subsidiary, Drogaria Onofre Ltda., which occurred on July 1, 2019. The Company expects to recognize a loss on divestiture within the Retail/LTC segment of approximately $200 million, which primarily relates to the elimination of the cumulative translation adjustment from accumulated other comprehensive income. This amount has been excluded from projected full year non-GAAP financial measures described above because the Company believes it neither relates to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflects the Company's underlying business performance.

The Company uses non-GAAP measures, including those described above, to analyze underlying business performance and trends. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP measures enhances the Company's and investors' ability to compare the Company's past financial performance with its current performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial measures presented in this press release that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's definitions of adjusted operating income, Adjusted EPS, adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health, adjusted revenues and adjusted operating expenses may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements reported by other companies.

See endnotes (1) through (4) for definitions of non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented on pages 13 through 17 and 25 through 27 in this press release.

Supplemental Information
(Unaudited)

The Company's segments maintain separate financial information, and the Company's chief operating decision maker (the "CODM") evaluates the segments' operating results on a regular basis in deciding how to allocate resources among the segments and in assessing segment performance. The CODM evaluates the performance of the Company's segments based on adjusted operating income. Effective for the first quarter of 2019, adjusted operating income is defined as operating income (loss) (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets and other items, if any, that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance as further described in endnote (1). Segment financial information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 has been retrospectively adjusted to conform with the current period presentation. The Company uses adjusted operating income as its principal measure of segment performance as it enhances the Company's ability to compare past financial performance with current performance and analyze underlying business performance and trends.

Effective for the first quarter of 2019, the Company realigned the composition of its segments to correspond with changes to its operating model and how the CODM manages the business. As a result of this realignment, the Company's SilverScript PDP moved from the Pharmacy Services segment to the Health Care Benefits segment. In addition, the Company moved Aetna's mail order and specialty pharmacy operations from the Health Care Benefits segment to the Pharmacy Services segment. Segment financial information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, has been retrospectively adjusted to reflect these changes as shown below:

(a)

Days claims payable is calculated by dividing the health care costs payable at each quarter end by the average health care costs per day during each respective quarter. Days claims payable is not directly comparable to the legacy Aetna metric due to the addition of 6.0 million SilverScript standalone Medicare PDP members to the Health Care Benefits segment as a result of the segment realignment in the first quarter of 2019.

Endnotes

(1)  The Company defines adjusted operating income as operating income (loss) (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets and other items, if any, that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance such as acquisition-related transaction and integration costs, store rationalization charges, goodwill impairments, gains/losses on divestitures, interest income on financings associated with proposed acquisitions (for periods prior to the acquisition), and any other items specifically identified herein. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" earlier in this press release for additional information regarding the items excluded from operating income (loss).

(2)  The Company defines adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health as income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets and other items, if any, that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance such as acquisition-related transaction and integration costs, store rationalization charges, goodwill impairments, gains/losses on divestitures, net interest expense on financings associated with proposed acquisitions (for periods prior to the acquisition), the corresponding tax benefit or expense related to the items excluded from adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health, the corresponding impact to income allocable to participating securities, net of tax, related to the items excluded from income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health in determining adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health, and any other items specifically identified herein. GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations and Adjusted EPS, respectively, are calculated by dividing income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health and adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health by the Company's weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted EPS for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 is calculated utilizing weighted average diluted shares outstanding, which include 2 million of potential common shares in both periods, as the impact of the potential common shares was dilutive.  The potential common shares were excluded from the calculation of GAAP loss per share from continuing operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, as the shares would have had an anti-dilutive effect as a result of the GAAP net loss incurred in both periods. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" earlier in this press release for additional information regarding the items excluded from income from continuing operations attributable to CVS Health and GAAP diluted EPS.

(3)  The Company defines adjusted revenues as total revenues (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of certain items that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance such as interest income on financings associated with proposed acquisitions (for periods prior to the acquisition) and any other items specifically identified herein. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" earlier in this press release for additional information regarding the items excluded from total revenues.

(4)  The Company defines adjusted operating expenses as operating expenses (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets and other items, if any, that neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company's business nor reflect the Company's underlying business performance such as acquisition-related transaction and integration costs, store rationalization charges, goodwill impairments, gains/losses on divestitures, and any other items specifically identified herein. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" earlier in this press release for additional information regarding the items excluded from operating expenses.

(5)  Enterprise prescriptions include prescriptions dispensed through the Company's retail pharmacies, long-term care pharmacies, and mail order pharmacies as well as prescription claims managed through our pharmacy benefit manager, with an elimination for managed prescription claims filled through CVS Health dispensing channels.

(6)  Includes an adjustment to convert 90-day prescriptions to the equivalent of three 30-day prescriptions. This adjustment reflects the fact that these prescriptions include approximately three times the amount of product days supplied compared to a normal prescription.

(7)  Pharmacy network revenues, pharmacy claims processed and generic dispensing rate do not include Maintenance Choice® activity, which is included within the mail choice category. Pharmacy network is defined as claims filled at retail and specialty retail pharmacies, including the Company's retail pharmacies and long-term care pharmacies, but excluding Maintenance Choice activity. Maintenance Choice permits eligible client plan members to fill their maintenance prescriptions through mail order delivery or at a CVS Pharmacy retail store for the same price as mail order.

(8)  Mail choice is defined as claims filled at a Pharmacy Services mail order facility, which includes specialty mail claims inclusive of Specialty Connect® claims picked up at a retail pharmacy, as well as prescriptions filled at the Company's retail pharmacies under the Maintenance Choice program.

(9)  Same store sales and prescription volume exclude revenues from MinuteClinic, and revenues and prescriptions from stores in Brazil and LTC operations.
