(the “Agent”), and CVS Caremark Corporation (“Counterparty”) on the Trade Date specified below (the “Transaction”). This Confirmation constitutes a “Confirmation” as referred to in the Agreement specified below. Barclays Bank PLC is not a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). Barclays is regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

The definitions and provisions contained in the 2002 ISDA Equity Derivatives Definitions (the “Equity Definitions”), as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc., are incorporated into this Confirmation. In the event of any inconsistency between the Equity Definitions and this Confirmation, this Confirmation shall govern. For purposes of the Equity Definitions, the Transaction shall be deemed to be a Share Forward Transaction.

Each party is hereby advised, and each such party acknowledges, that the other party has engaged in, or refrained from engaging in, substantial financial transactions and has taken other material actions in reliance upon the parties’ entry into the Transaction to which this Confirmation relates on the terms and conditions set forth below.

1. This Confirmation evidences a complete and binding agreement between Barclays and Counterparty as to the terms of the Transaction to which this Confirmation relates. This Confirmation shall supplement, form a part of, and be subject to, an agreement in the form of the ISDA 2002 Master Agreement (the “Agreement”) as if Barclays and Counterparty had executed an agreement in such form (without any Schedule and with such other elections set forth in this Confirmation) on the Trade Date. In the event of any inconsistency between provisions of the Agreement and this Confirmation, this Confirmation will prevail for the purpose of the Transaction. The parties hereby agree that no Transaction other than the Transaction to which this Confirmation relates shall be governed by the Agreement.

It is the intent of the parties that the Transaction comply with the requirements of Rule 10b5-1(c)(1)(i)(B) of the Exchange Act (“Rule 10b5-1”), and the parties agree that this Confirmation shall be interpreted to comply with the requirements of Rule 10b5-1(c), and neither party shall take any action that results in the Transaction not so complying with such requirements. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, Counterparty acknowledges and agrees that (A) Counterparty does not have, and shall not attempt to exercise, any influence over how, when or whether Barclays effects any purchases in connection with the Transaction, (B) during the Trading Period, any Cash Settlement Pricing Period and any Early Termination Settlement Pricing Period, neither Counterparty nor its officers or employees shall, directly or indirectly, communicate any material non-public information regarding Counterparty or the Shares to any employee of Barclays or its affiliates who is directly involved with the hedging of and trading with respect to the Transaction, (C) Counterparty is entering into the Transaction in good faith and not as part of a plan or scheme to evade compliance with federal securities laws including, without limitation, Rule 10b-5 and (D) Counterparty will not alter or deviate from this Confirmation or enter into or alter a corresponding hedging transaction with respect to the Shares. Counterparty also acknowledges and agrees that any amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Confirmation must be effected in accordance with the requirements for the amendment or termination of a “plan” as defined in Rule 10b5-1(c). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any such amendment, modification, waiver or termination shall be made in good faith and not as part of a plan or scheme to evade the prohibitions of Rule 10b-5 and no such amendment, modification or waiver shall be made at any time at which Counterparty or any officer or director of Counterparty is aware of any material non-public information regarding Counterparty or the Shares.

 

  (d) Company Purchases. Without Barclays’ consent, during the Trading Period, any Cash Settlement Pricing Period and any Early Termination Settlement Pricing Period, Counterparty shall not, and shall not cause any Affiliate Purchaser to, directly or indirectly (including, without limitation, by means of any cash-settled or other derivative instrument) purchase, offer to purchase, place any bid or limit order that would effect a purchase of, or commence any tender offer relating to, any Shares (or an equivalent interest, including a unit of beneficial interest in a trust or limited partnership or a depository share), other than purchases that are not solicited by or on behalf of Counterparty, its affiliates or Affiliated Purchasers.

 

  (e) Regulation M. Counterparty is not on the date hereof, engaged in a distribution, as such term is used in Regulation M under the Exchange Act, of any securities of Counterparty, other than a distribution meeting the requirements of the exception set forth in Sections 101(b)(10) and 102(b)(7) of Regulation M under the Exchange Act. Counterparty shall not, until the end of the Trading Period, engage in any such distribution without prior notice to Barclays (a “Distribution Notice”). Counterparty acknowledges that delivery of a Distribution Notice could result in the occurrence of a Regulatory Disruption, and the parties agree that any such occurrence shall be treated as a Potential Adjustment Event hereunder.

 

  (f)

Additional Termination Event. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, an “Additional Termination Event” shall occur and Counterparty shall be the sole Affected Party pursuant to such Additional Termination Event if on any day occurring after the Trade Date and on or prior to the last Scheduled Trading Day in the Trading Period (I) Counterparty declares a distribution, issue or


  dividend to existing holders of the Shares with an ex-dividend date on or prior to the Valuation Date of (i) cash, other than a Regular Dividend, (ii) securities or share capital of another issuer acquired or owned (directly or indirectly) by Counterparty as a result of a spin-off or other similar transaction or (iii) any other type of securities (other than Shares), rights or warrants or other assets, in any case for payment (cash or other consideration) at less than the prevailing market price as determined by the Calculation Agent (any dividend, distribution or issuance described in clause (i), (ii) or (iii) above, an “Extraordinary Dividend”) or (II) the arithmetic average of the 10b-18 VWAPs for all Exchange Business Days in the Trading Period prior to, and including, such day is less than the Termination Price specified in Schedule A, and, in the case of this clause (II) only, such Additional Termination Event will automatically occur without any notice or action by Barclays or Counterparty, and the Exchange Business Day immediately following the Exchange Business Day on which such Additional Termination Event occurs will be the “Early Termination Date” for purposes of the Agreement.

 

  (g) Physical Settlement by Counterparty. If Physical Settlement applies, Counterparty shall deliver either (i) a number of Registered Shares equal to the product of (A) the absolute value of the Number of Shares to be Delivered, multiplied by (B) 100.5%, OR (ii) a number of Restricted Shares equal to the product of (A) the absolute value of the Number of Shares to be Delivered, multiplied by (B) 102%. “Registered Shares” shall mean Shares that satisfy the conditions for Registered Shares set forth in Section 5(i) below. “Restricted Shares” shall mean Shares that are not Registered Shares.

 

  (h) Cash Settlement by Counterparty. If Cash Settlement applies, Counterparty shall pay to Barclays on the Cash Settlement Date an amount in cash equal to the Cash Settlement Amount. “Cash Settlement Date” shall mean the date one Settlement Cycle immediately following the last Exchange Business Day during the Cash Settlement Pricing Period. “Cash Settlement Amount” shall mean the product of (i) the absolute value of the Number of Shares to be Delivered, multiplied by (ii) the arithmetic average of the 10b-18 VWAPs for all Scheduled Trading Days in the Cash Settlement Pricing Period (the “Cash Settlement Price”). “Cash Settlement Pricing Period” shall mean the period commencing on the third Scheduled Trading Day immediately following the last Scheduled Trading Day of the Trading Period and ending on an Exchange Business Day selected by the Calculation Agent and notified to the parties prior to the beginning of the Cash Settlement Pricing Period.

 

  (i)

Share Delivery Conditions. If Physical Settlement applies, Counterparty may deliver Registered Shares in respect of its settlement obligations only if the following conditions have been satisfied (the “Registration Provisions”): (i) a registration statement (“Registration Statement”) (which may be a shelf registration statement filed pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act) covering public resale by Barclays (or an affiliate thereof) of any Shares delivered by Counterparty to Barclays under such Physical Settlement by Counterparty (“Settlement Shares”) shall have been filed with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) no later than one Scheduled Trading Day prior to the Settlement Date and such Registration Statement continues to be in effect at all times to and including the date that Barclays or its affiliate(s) has fully and finally sold any Settlement Shares hereunder, (ii) the contents of such Registration Statement and of any prospectus supplement to the prospectus included therein (including, without limitation, any sections describing the plan of distribution) shall be reasonably satisfactory to Barclays, (iii) Barclays shall have been afforded a reasonable opportunity to conduct a due diligence investigation with respect to Counterparty customary in scope for transactions pursuant to which Barclays (or an affiliate thereof) acts as an underwriter of equity securities of similar size by similar issuers and the results of such investigation are reasonably satisfactory to Barclays and (iv) as of the Settlement Date, an agreement between Barclays and Counterparty of reasonable underwriting terms customary for underwritten offerings of equity securities of similar size by similar issuers, including but not limited to indemnification and contribution and due diligence (the “Underwriting Agreement”) shall have been entered into with Barclays in connection with the public resale of the Settlement Shares by Barclays (or an affiliate


  thereof); provided that such Underwriting Agreement shall not provide for any underwriting discount, commission or fee or any selling concessions. If Physical Settlement applies and Counterparty delivers Restricted Shares in respect of its settlement obligation, Barclays acknowledges that transfer of such Restricted Shares will be restricted under applicable securities laws.

 

  (j) Transfer or Assignment. Notwithstanding any provision of the Agreement to the contrary, Barclays may, subject to applicable law, freely transfer and assign all of its rights and obligations under the Transaction without the consent of Counterparty to any affiliate of Barclays whose obligations hereunder are guaranteed by Barclays; provided that Barclays may not assign its rights and obligations under the Transaction if such assignment would result in (i) Counterparty being required to pay the assignee an amount in respect of an Indemnifiable Tax under Section 2(d)(i)(4) of the Agreement greater than the amount in respect of which Counterparty would have been required to pay to Barclays in the absence of such assignment or (ii) Counterparty receiving a payment from which an amount has been withheld or deducted, on account of a Tax under Section 2(d)(i) of the Agreement in excess of that which Counterparty would have been required to so withhold or deduct in the absence of such assignment, unless the assignee would be required to make additional payments pursuant to Section 2(d)(i)(4) of the Agreement corresponding to such withholding or deduction.

Notwithstanding any other provision in this Confirmation to the contrary requiring or allowing Barclays to purchase, sell, receive or deliver any Shares or other securities to or from Counterparty, Barclays may designate any of its affiliates to purchase, sell, receive or deliver such Shares or other securities and otherwise to perform Barclays’ obligations in respect of the Transaction and any such designee may assume such obligations. Barclays shall be discharged of its obligations to Counterparty only to the extent of any such performance.

 

  (k) Role of Agent. Each of Barclays and Counterparty acknowledges to and agrees with the other party hereto and to and with the Agent that (i) the Agent is acting as agent for Barclays under the Transaction pursuant to instructions from such party, (ii) the Agent is not a principal or party to the Transaction, and may transfer its rights and obligations with respect to the Transaction, (iii) the Agent shall have no responsibility, obligation or liability, by way of issuance, guaranty, endorsement or otherwise in any manner with respect to the performance of either party under the Transaction, (iv) Barclays and the Agent have not given, and Counterparty is not relying (for purposes of making any investment decision or otherwise) upon, any statements, opinions or representations (whether written or oral) of Barclays or the Agent, other than the representations expressly set forth in this Confirmation or the Agreement, and (v) each party agrees to proceed solely against the other party, and not the Agent, to collect or recover any money or securities owed to it in connection with the Transaction. Each party hereto acknowledges and agrees that the Agent is an intended third party beneficiary hereunder. Counterparty acknowledges that the Agent is an affiliate of Barclays. Whenever delivery of funds or other assets is required hereunder by or to Counterparty, such delivery shall be effected through Agent. In addition, all notices, demands and communications of any kind relating to the Transaction between Barclays and Counterparty shall be transmitted exclusively through Agent. Barclays acknowledges and agrees that any delivery by Counterparty to Agent of any money, Shares or other assets or any notice, demand or communication with respect to the Transaction shall be effective for all purposes hereunder and under the Agreement as if such money, Shares, assets, notice, demand or communication had been delivered to Barclays on the date of the delivery thereof to Agent.

 

  (l) Regulatory Provisions. The time of dealing for the Transaction will be confirmed by Barclays upon written request by Counterparty. The Agent will furnish to Counterparty upon written request a statement as to the source and amount of any remuneration received or to be received by the Agent in connection with a Transaction.


  (m) Netting and Setoff. Obligations under the Transaction shall not be netted, recouped or set off (including pursuant to Section 6 of the Agreement) against any other obligations of the parties, whether arising under the Agreement, this Confirmation, under any other agreement between the parties hereto, by operation of law or otherwise, and no other obligations of the parties shall be netted, recouped or set off (including pursuant to Section 6 of the Agreement) against obligations under the Transaction, whether arising under the Agreement, this Confirmation, under any other agreement between the parties hereto, by operation of law or otherwise, and each party hereby waives any such right of setoff, netting or recoupment.

 

  (n) Staggered Settlement. Barclays may, by notice to Counterparty on or prior to any Settlement Date (a “Nominal Settlement Date”), elect to deliver any Shares deliverable on such Nominal Settlement Date on two or more dates (each, a “Staggered Settlement Date”) or at two or more times on the Nominal Settlement Date as follows: (i) in such notice, Barclays will specify to Counterparty the related Staggered Settlement Dates (each of which will be on or prior to such Nominal Settlement Date) or delivery times and how it will allocate the Shares it is required to deliver under the applicable settlement method above among the Staggered Settlement Dates or delivery times; and (ii) the aggregate number of Shares that Barclays will deliver to Counterparty hereunder on all such Staggered Settlement Dates and delivery times will equal the number of Shares that Barclays would otherwise be required to deliver on such Nominal Settlement Date.

 

  (o)

Alternative Calculations and Counterparty Payment on Early Termination and on Certain Extraordinary Events. If Barclays owes Counterparty or if Counterparty owes Barclays any amount in connection with the Transaction (i) pursuant to Sections 12.2, 12.3, 12.6, 12.7 or 12.9 of the Equity Definitions or “Announcement Event” above (except in the case of an Extraordinary Event in which the consideration or proceeds to be paid to holders of Shares as a result of such event consists solely of cash) or (ii) pursuant to Section 6(d)(ii) of the Agreement (except in the case of an Event of Default in which Counterparty is the Defaulting Party or a Termination Event in which Counterparty is the Affected Party, other than an Event of Default or Termination Event that resulted from an event or events outside Counterparty’s control) (a “Payment Obligation”), Counterparty shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to satisfy or to require Barclays to satisfy, as the case may be, any such Payment Obligation by delivery of Termination Delivery Units (as defined below) by giving irrevocable telephonic notice to Barclays, confirmed in writing within one Scheduled Trading Day, no later than noon New York time on the Early Termination Date or other date the Transaction is cancelled or terminated, as applicable (“Notice of Barclays/Counterparty Termination Delivery”). If the Payment Obligation is to be satisfied by delivery of Termination Delivery Units pursuant to the preceding sentence, within one Exchange Business Day following receipt of a Notice of Barclays/Counterparty Termination Delivery, Barclays shall deliver to Counterparty or the Counterparty shall deliver to Barclays, as the case may be, a number of Termination Delivery Units having a fair market value equal to the amount of such Payment Obligation (such number of Termination Delivery Units to be delivered to be determined by the Calculation Agent as the number of whole Termination Delivery Units that could be (A) purchased (I) over a commercially reasonable period of time and (II) if the Termination Delivery Units are Shares, in compliance with Rule 10b-18, with the cash equivalent of such Payment Obligation, or (B) sold over a commercially reasonable period of time to generate proceeds equal to the cash equivalent of such Payment Obligation, as the case may be (either such period, the “Early Termination Settlement Pricing Period”)). By 9:00 a.m. New York time on the first Scheduled Trading Day following receipt of a Notice of Barclays/Counterparty Termination Delivery, Barclays shall notify Counterparty in writing of the length of the Early Termination Settlement Pricing Period. If the Payment Obligation is to be satisfied by delivery of Termination Delivery Units pursuant to this Section 5(o), (x) Physical Settlement as set forth herein shall apply, with the number of Termination Delivery Units to be delivered, determined as described above, being deemed to be the Number of Shares to be Delivered for purposes of such Physical Settlement, (y) the Early Termination Settlement Date shall be a “Settlement Date” within the meaning of Section 9.4 of the Equity Definitions, and (z) the provisions of Sections 9.8, 9.9, 9.10, 9.11 (modified as described above) and 9.12 of the


  Equity Definitions shall be applicable to the delivery of Termination Delivery Units under this Section, except that all references herein and therein to “Shares” shall be read as references to “Termination Delivery Units.” “Termination Delivery Units” means in the case of a Termination Event, Event of Default or Delisting, one Share or, in the case of Nationalization, Insolvency, Tender Offer or Merger Event, a unit consisting of the number or amount of each type of property received by a holder of one Share (without consideration of any requirement to pay cash or other consideration in lieu of fractional amounts of any securities) in such Nationalization, Insolvency, Tender Offer or Merger Event; provided that if such Nationalization, Insolvency, Tender Offer or Merger Event involves a choice of consideration to be received by holders, such holder shall be deemed to have elected to receive the maximum possible amount of cash; provided further that in calculating any Payment Obligation in connection with a Termination Event, any distribution, issue or dividend, including any Extraordinary Dividend, paid in respect of the Termination Delivery Units shall not be considered a loss recoverable by Barclays. Counterparty agrees to furnish Barclays with written notice at least 30 days prior to the ex-dividend dates corresponding to such foregoing distributions, issues and dividends, other than a Regular Dividend. For the avoidance of doubt, any Share delivered in satisfaction of the Counterparty’s Payment Obligation as described in this Section 5(o) may be either a Registered Share or a Restricted Share as provided in Section 5(g) and 5(i) above.

 

  (p) No Material Non-Public Information. On the Trade Date, Counterparty represents and warrants to Barclays that it is not aware of any material non-public information concerning itself or the Shares. “Material” information for these purposes is any information to which an investor would reasonably attach importance in reaching a decision to buy, sell or hold Shares.

 

  (q) Maximum Number of Shares. The aggregate number of Shares that may be delivered by Counterparty pursuant to this Confirmation, the Equity Definitions or the Agreement in respect of the Transaction will be limited to the lesser of (i) the total Shares authorized but not outstanding, reduced by the total amount of contingently issuable Shares and (ii) 50,632,911 Shares. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, if the number of Shares to be issued at settlement by Counterparty exceeds the limit in clause (i) of the preceding sentence, Counterparty will use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all necessary approvals to issue additional Shares to enable it to satisfy all obligations hereunder, and if such approvals are obtained, shall satisfy any obligations not satisfied as a result of the immediately preceding sentence. For the avoidance of doubt, Counterparty shall not be required to satisfy in cash such Share delivery obligation if Counterparty is unable to obtain such necessary approvals.

 

  (r) Tax Disclosure. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the Equity Definitions or in the Agreement, and notwithstanding any express or implied claims of exclusivity or proprietary rights, the parties (and each of their employees, representatives or other agents) are authorized to disclose to any and all persons, beginning immediately upon commencement of their discussions and without limitation of any kind, the tax treatment and tax structure of the Transaction, and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) that are provided by either party to the other relating to such tax treatment and tax structure.

 

  (s) Status of Claims in Bankruptcy. Barclays acknowledges and agrees that this Confirmation is not intended to convey to Barclays rights with respect to the Transaction that are senior to the claims of common stockholders of Counterparty in any U.S. bankruptcy proceedings of Counterparty; provided that nothing herein shall limit or shall be deemed to limit Barclays’ right to pursue remedies in the event of a breach by Counterparty of its obligations and agreements with respect to the Transaction at any time other than during U.S. bankruptcy proceedings of Counterparty; provided, further, that nothing in this Section 5(s) shall limit or shall be deemed to limit Barclays’ rights in respect of any transactions other than the Transaction.


  (t) No Collateral. Notwithstanding any provision of this Confirmation, the Agreement, Equity Definitions or any other agreement between the parties to the contrary, the obligations of Counterparty under the Transaction are not secured by any collateral.

 

  (u) Securities Contract. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that Barclays is one or more of a “financial institution” and “financial participant” within the meaning of Sections 101(22) and 101(22A) of the Bankruptcy Code. The parties hereto further agree and acknowledge (A) that this Confirmation is a “securities contract,” as such term is defined in Section 741(7) of the Bankruptcy Code, with respect to which each payment and delivery hereunder or in connection herewith is a “termination value,” “payment amount” or “other transfer obligation” within the meaning of Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code and a “settlement payment” or a “transfer” within the meaning of Section 546 of the Bankruptcy Code and (B) that Barclays is entitled to the protections afforded by, among other sections, Section 362(b)(6), 362(b)(27), 362(o), 546(e), 546(j), 548(d)(2), 555 and 561 of the Bankruptcy Code.

 

  (v) Payments on Early Termination. Barclays and Counterparty agree that for the Transaction, the definition of Close-out Amount in the Agreement shall be amended by (i) deleting the second sentence of the paragraph immediately following clause (iii) thereof and (ii) replacing the words “(or any gain resulting from any of them)” with the words “and shall, in calculating any Close-out Amount, consider any gain resulting from its terminating, liquidating or re-establishing any hedge related to a Termination Transaction or group of Termination Transactions” in the second paragraph following clause (iii) thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, the Payment Obligation determined upon Early Termination shall not include the economic effect of any dividends or distributions, including any Extraordinary Dividends, declared or paid by the Counterparty since the Trade Date.

 

  (w) Agreement Regarding Calculations and Settlement. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Confirmation, the Definitions or the Agreement to the contrary, in calculating any adjustment pursuant to Article 11 of the Equity Definitions or any amount payable pursuant to Article 12 of the Equity Definitions or Section 6 of the Agreement, the Calculation Agent shall not take into account changes to costs of funding, stock loan rates or any distribution, issue or dividends declared since the Trade Date.

For the avoidance of doubt, following payment by Counterparty of the relevant Prepayment Amount, the Additional Payment and the Transaction Fee nothing in this Confirmation shall be interpreted as requiring Counterparty to deliver cash in respect of the settlement of the Transaction or in respect of any Payment Obligation owed by Counterparty (except in the case of an Event of Default in which Counterparty is the Defaulting Party or a Termination Event in which Counterparty is the Affected Party, other than an Event of Default or a Termination Event that resulted from an event or events outside Counterparty’s control).

 

  (x) Governing Law. The law of the State of New York (without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction).

 

  (y) Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THE TRANSACTION. EACH PARTY (I) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF THE OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF SUCH A SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (II) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTY HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THE TRANSACTION, AS APPLICABLE, BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS PROVIDED HEREIN.
