McKesson/HBOC Inc. ERISA Litigation

The case “involves [Employee Retirement Security Income Act] claims brought on behalf of the HBOC Profit Sharing and Savings Plan (the “HBOC Plan”) and the McKesson Profit Sharing and Investment Plan (the “McKesson Plan”), as well as participants in those plans. On May 6, 2005, a Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement was executed for that portion of the ERISA Action that involves HBOC Plan claims. The proposed settlement resolves all claims by the HBOC Plan and its participants in consideration of an $18.2 million cash payment by the Company. The settlement is subject to various conditions, including, but not limited to, notice to the class and final approval by the Court. Judge Whyte has scheduled a hearing on final approval of the HBOC Plan settlement for September 9, 2005. The separate ERISA claims of the McKesson Plan and its participants are not resolved by this settlement. The Company’s motion to dismiss those claims remains pending before this Court.”
