WellPoint Schedules Second Quarter Earnings Conference Call & Publishes Reportable Segment Information

Stocks in this article: WLP

WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) will release second quarter 2013 financial results on July 24, 2013, at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (“EDT”). Management will review these results and its outlook during a conference call at 8:30 a.m. EDT that same morning. The conference call should be accessed at least 15 minutes prior to its start with the following numbers:

      800-230-1059 (Domestic)     800-475-6701 (Domestic Replay)
612-234-9960 (International) 320-365-3844 (International Replay)

An access code is not required for the July 24, 2013, conference call. The access code for the replay is 272703. The replay will be available from 11:00 a.m. EDT on July 24, 2013, until the end of the day on August 6, 2013. The call will also be available through a live webcast at under “Investors.” A webcast replay will be available following the call.

Additionally, as announced on May 20, 2013, WellPoint has realigned its organizational structure to enhance execution and accountability as the company positions for future growth. Based on this realignment, WellPoint will now have three reportable segments:

1. Commercial and Specialty Business (comprised of the Local Group, National Accounts, Individual and Specialty businesses);

2. Government Business (comprised of the Medicaid and Medicare businesses, National Government Services and the Federal Employee Program); and

3. Other (comprised of unallocated corporate expenses and certain other businesses that do not meet the quantitative thresholds for separate reportable segment disclosure).

This new reportable segment structure will be reflected in WellPoint’s second quarter 2013 financial results. Today, the company published reclassified historical financial information under the new segment structure for informational purposes (refer to reclassified reportable segment highlights table). The changes in reportable segment structure affect only the manner in which the results of WellPoint’s reportable segments were previously reported and have no impact on reported net income or earnings per share for any period.
