CVS Caremark finalizes previously announced settlement with SEC

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Caremark announced on Tuesday that it has finalized with the Securities and Exchange Commission a settlement that was previously announced in August 2013.

The settlement was entered into on a "no admit or deny basis" and will not require CVS Caremark to restate its earnings for any reporting period. The company stated that the matter is now fully resolved.

As previously announced last year when the company disclosed that it had reached an agreement in principle with the staff of the SEC, the settlement relates to events that occurred in the third and fourth quarters of 2009, including certain public disclosures made by the company and certain aspects of the purchase accounting adjustment related to the October 2008 Longs Drug Stores acquisition.
