We are focused on maximizing shareholder value through long-term growth, strong cash flow, and a disciplined approach to capital allocation.
CVS Health’s ability to aggregate lives and increase share across our enterprise dispensing channels-including retail, specialty, and long-term care-are cornerstones of our strategy for sustainable growth. Through CVS Caremark’s unique cost management and clinical capabilities, our covered lives have increased by more than 40 percent in just the past four years. We will continue to execute with excellence and drive efficiencies across our enterprise to remain a low-cost provider-and one that delivers exceptional service to patients. A streamlining initiative now underway is expected to result in a total of nearly $3 billion in savings from 2017 through 2021. Our integrated model also provides a platform for developing innovative clinical solutions to support patients along all stages of the care continuum. Through it all, we’ll operate with an enterprise mindset rather than focusing on the success of any one business. And thanks to the substantial cash that CVS Health generates, we can return significant value to shareholders through acquisitions and other strategic investments, dividends, and share repurchases.
