These matters involve risks and uncertainties as discussed in the registration statement on Form S-4 and S-1 filed by SpinCo in connection with the Transactions (as defined below) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) (File No. 333-236236) and the registration statement on Form S-4 filed by Change in connection with the Transactions with the SEC (File No. 333-236234), as well as in McKesson’s and Change’s respective periodic reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K, filed from time to time with the SEC.

These statements are based on the current expectations of the management of McKesson, SpinCo and Change (as the case may be) and are subject to uncertainty and to changes in circumstances and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. In addition, these statements are based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change. Such risks, uncertainties and assumptions include, but are not limited to: changes in the healthcare industry and regulatory environment; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; material adverse resolution of pending legal proceedings, including those related to the distribution of controlled substances; cyberattack, natural disaster, or malfunction of sophisticated internal computer systems to perform as designed; the potential inadequacy of insurance to cover property loss or liability claims; the satisfaction of the conditions to the Transactions and other risks related to the completion of the Transactions and actions related thereto; McKesson’s and Change’s ability to complete the Transactions on the anticipated terms and schedule; the anticipated tax treatment of the Transactions; the expansion and growth of Change’s operations; ongoing risks related to the price or trading volume of McKesson’s and Change’s common stock; failure to pay dividends to holders of McKesson’s or Change’s common stock; impairment charges for goodwill; and the risk that disruptions from the Transactions will harm McKesson’s, SpinCo’s, Change Healthcare’s or Change’s businesses. However, it is not possible to predict or identify all such factors. Consequently, while the list of factors presented here is considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties.
