Strategic Rationale

The combination with Covidien supports and accelerates Medtronic's three fundamental strategies:

• Therapy Innovation: With its expanded portfolio of innovative products and services, Medtronic will be a preeminent leader in delivering therapy and procedural innovations to address the major disease states impacting patients and healthcare costs around the world.
Covidien has an impressive portfolio of industry- leading products that enhance Medtronic's existing portfolio, offer greater breadth across clinical areas, and create exciting entry points into new therapies.

• Globalization: With a presence in more than 150 countries, the combined entity will be better able to serve global market needs.
Medtronic and Covidien have combined revenues of $13 billion from outside the U.S., of which $3.7 billion comes from emerging markets.
Covidien's extensive capabilities in emerging market R&D and manufacturing, joined with Medtronic's demonstrated clinical expertise across a much broader product offering, significantly increases the number of attractive solutions the new company will be able to offer to governments and major providers globally.

• Economic Value: Medtronic has adopted an intense focus on aligning with its customers to create more value in healthcare systems around the world - in various delivery and payment systems - by combining products, services and insights into solutions aimed at expanding access and reducing healthcare costs.
With Covidien, Medtronic will be able to provide a broader array of complementary therapies and solutions that can be packaged to drive more value and efficiency in healthcare systems.
Both companies' deep relationships with healthcare system stakeholders will provide enormous ability to identify and create further value-based solutions.

U.S. Investment Commitment as a Result of Combination

The U.S. is home to the global medtech industry, one of the most innovative global industries centered in the U.S., and medical devices are among the most valuable U.S. exports.

The combined company is strongly committed to the U.S. as a healthcare innovator, strategic business partner and employer of choice.

As a direct benefit of the company's new financial structure, Medtronic will commit to $10 billion in technology investments over the next 10 years in areas such as early stage venture capital investments, acquisitions and R&D in the U.S., above and beyond Medtronic's and Covidien's existing plans.

"The medical technology industry is critical to the U.S. economy, and we will continue to invest and innovate and create well-paying jobs,"
said Mr. Ishrak.
"Medtronic has consistently been the leading innovator and investor in U.S. medtech, and this combination will allow us to accelerate those investments. These investments ultimately produce new therapy and treatment options that improve or save lives for millions of people around the world."

Structure and Governance

After the completion of the transaction, the businesses of Medtronic and Covidien will be combined under a new entity to be called Medtronic plc.

It will have its principal executive offices in Ireland, where Covidien's current headquarters resides and where both companies have a longstanding presence.

Medtronic plc will be led by Mr. Ishrak, and will continue to have its operational headquarters in Minneapolis, where Medtronic currently employs more than 8,000 people.

Financial Highlights

Upon completion of the transaction, each outstanding ordinary share of Covidien will be converted into the right to receive $35.19 in cash and 0.956 of an ordinary share of Medtronic plc.

The per-share consideration represents a premium of 29% to Covidien's closing stock price on June 13, 2014, the last trading day prior to the announcement.

Medtronic shareholders will exchange each share of stock they own in Medtronic for one ordinary share of stock in Medtronic plc.

The transaction is expected to be taxable, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, to shareholders of both Medtronic and Covidien.


The proposed transaction represents compelling value to Covidien shareholders through the cash component and continued participation in the future growth prospects expected to result from the combination through their ownership of approximately 30% of the combined company.

The transaction is expected to be accretive to Medtronic's cash earnings in FY 2016, the first full fiscal year, and significantly accretive thereafter.

The transaction is also expected to be accretive to GAAP earnings by FY 2018.

The statement that this acquisition is earnings accretive should not be interpreted to mean that the earnings per share in the current or any future financial period will necessarily match or be greater than those for the relevant preceding financial period.

The combination is expected to result in at least $850 million of annual pre-tax cost synergies by the end of fiscal year 2018.


These synergies include the benefits of optimizing global back-office, manufacturing and supply-chain infrastructure, as well as the elimination of redundant public company costs.

The estimate excludes any benefit from potential revenue synergies resulting from the combination of the two organizations.

Through this combination, Medtronic is expected to generate significant free cash flow, which it will be able to deploy with greater strategic flexibility, particularly in the U.S.

In addition, the proposed transaction requires regulatory clearances in the U.S., the E.U., China and certain other countries.

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth calendar quarter of 2014 or early 2015.
