On February 8, 2010, Shareholders of IMS Health Incorporated (“RX”) voted concerning
the proposed merger with Healthcare Technology Holdings, Inc., an entity created by
affiliates of TPG Capital, L.P. and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. The
merger was approved and consummated, so each existing RX Common Share will be
converted into the right to receive $22.00 net cash per share.
This action will be coordinated with the Options Clearing Corporation.
