  • Cash and short term investments at the parent company were approximately $435 million at September 30, 2012 and $3.8 billion at December 31, 2011, which included amounts held at year-end to fund the HealthSpring acquisition that closed on January 31, 2012.
  • As of November 1, 2012, the Company repurchased 6 approximately 4.4 million shares of stock for approximately $210 million.
  • Consistent with our strategy to deliver differentiated value and affordable solutions for our customers and clients, we have initiated a series of actions to improve our organizational alignment, operational effectiveness, and efficiency, resulting in a $50 million after-tax charge which is reported as a special item. We expect the impact of these actions to reduce annualized operating expenses by approximately $60 million after taxes. The majority of the expense savings is expected to be reinvested in the business to further our differentiated programs that improve the health, well-being and sense of security of our customers.
