On December 15, 2011, the Company announced it plans to spin off its pharmaceuticals business into a standalone public company. Covidien anticipates the transaction will be in the form of a distribution that will be tax-free to U.S. shareholders of a new, publicly traded stock in the new pharmaceuticals company. Covidien currently expects that the process could take up to 18 months. While we are undergoing the spin-off process, the pharmaceuticals business remains a segment of Covidien, and will continue to operate according to the Company’s strategic plan, focusing on our customers and patients who rely on our products. Equally important, Pharmaceuticals’ mission remains the same: To make diagnostics and medicines better and safer for you and your family.
