CVS completes $12.9 billion acquisition of Omnicare
CVS Health Corporation and Omnicare announced in May they have entered into a definitive agreement for CVS Health to acquire Omnicare for $98 per share in cash.
With the acquisition of Omnicare, CVS Health will significantly expand its ability to dispense prescriptions in assisted living and long term care facilities, serving the senior patient population. CVS Health will also expand its presence in the rapidly growing specialty pharmacy business.
Omnicare's complementary specialty pharmacy platform and clinical expertise will augment CVS Health's capabilities and enable CVS Health to continue to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions to patients and payors. ■
