Item 8.01 Other Events.
On September 7, 2010, Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (Medco) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with the underwriters named therein pursuant to which Medco has agreed to issue $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 2.750% Notes due 2015 (the 2015 Notes) and $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.125% Notes due 2020 (the 2020 Notes, and together with the 2015 Notes, the Notes), upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Underwriting Agreement. The Notes will be governed by the terms of an Indenture between Medco and U.S. Bank Trust National Association, as Trustee, dated as of March 18, 2008 (the Indenture). Medco intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes for general corporate purposes, including repayment of borrowings under Medcos senior unsecured revolving credit facility, which may include borrowings used to fund Medcos acquisition of United BioSource Corporation, which was described in Medcos prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on September 9, 2010.
Interest on the 2015 Notes will accrue from September 10, 2010 at the rate of 2.750% per year, and interest on the 2020 Notes will accrue from September 10, 2010 at the rate of 4.125% per year. Interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually on March 15 and September 15 of each year, commencing March 15, 2011. The 2015 Notes will mature on September 15, 2015, and the 2020 Notes will mature on September 15, 2020. The Notes are senior unsecured debt obligations of Medco and will rank equally in right of payment among themselves and with all of Medcos other present and future senior unsecured indebtedness.
The Notes have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-149655) previously filed with the Commission by Medco under that Act. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as an exhibit hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
