Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On March 5, 2024, members of CVS Health Corporation’s (“CVS Health,” the “Company,” “we” or “our”) senior management team will meet with investors and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Tom Cowhey will participate in a webcast at 9:50 a.m. (Eastern Time). During the meetings and webcast, the senior management team will reaffirm the Company’s previously announced full-year 2024 GAAP diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) guidance of at least $7.06, its full-year 2024 Adjusted EPS guidance of at least $8.30, and its full-year 2024 cash flow from operations guidance of at least $12.0 billion. In addition, during the webcast Mr. Cowhey will provide updates on recent business trends and initiatives.

An audio webcast of the presentation will be broadcast simultaneously for all interested parties through the Investor Relations portion of the CVS Health website at http://investors.cvshealth.com, and a replay of the webcast will be archived for one year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This Current Report on Form 8-K includes projected Adjusted EPS, which represents a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to analyze underlying business performance and trends. The Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures enhances the Company’s and investors’ ability to compare the Company’s past financial performance with its current performance. 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 its non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is projected GAAP diluted EPS.

Projected GAAP diluted EPS and projected Adjusted EPS, respectively, are calculated by dividing projected net income attributable to CVS Health and projected adjusted income attributable to CVS Health, respectively, by the Company’s projected weighted average diluted shares outstanding. The Company defines adjusted income attributable to CVS Health as net income attributable to CVS Health (GAAP measure) excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets, net realized capital gains or losses 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 integration costs, as well as the corresponding tax benefit or expense related to the items excluded from adjusted income attributable to CVS Health.

The following is a reconciliation of projected GAAP diluted EPS to projected Adjusted EPS:
Year Ending
December 31, 2024
At Least
Per Common Share
Net income attributable to CVS Health (GAAP measure)$7.06 
Non-GAAP adjustments:
Amortization of intangible assets1.58 
Acquisition-related integration costs (1)
Tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments (2)
Adjusted income attributable to CVS Health$8.30 
(1)Acquisition-related integration costs relate to the acquisitions of Signify Health, Inc. (“Signify Health”) and Oak Street Health, Inc. (“Oak Street Health”).
(2)Represents the corresponding tax benefit or expense related to the items excluded from 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.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of CVS Health Corporation. Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K that are forward-looking include, but are not limited to, references to CVS Health’s estimates for certain financial metrics for full-year 2024 presented in this Current Report on Form 8-K, which are preliminary. By their nature, all forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results and are subject to risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and/or quantify. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements due to the risks and uncertainties described in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including those set forth in the Risk Factors section and under the heading “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements” in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K.

You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on CVS Health’s forward-looking statements. CVS Health’s forward-looking statements are and will be based upon management’s then-current views and assumptions regarding preliminary financial estimates and projections, future events and operating performance, and are applicable only as of the dates of such statements. CVS Health does not assume any duty to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, uncertainties or otherwise.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (as amended, the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, and shall not be or be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
