As of December 31, 2012, the company had unrestricted cash and investments of $302.3 million.

"Magellan had a strong fourth quarter, and completed a successful 2012," said Barry M. Smith, chief executive officer. "Each of our business units contributed to our success with significant accomplishments including solid financial results, product innovation, and new business sales.

"This is an exciting time as we enter a new phase of growth. The next twenty-four to thirty-six months will be especially dynamic, as the industry consolidates and the Affordable Care Act is implemented with Medicaid expansion and the creation of state, federal and commercial exchanges. As a result of these changes, we foresee market disruption for the traditional players, allowing for significant growth opportunities for innovative, agile companies such as Magellan.

"During 2013, we will continue investing to expand our presence in the Pharmacy marketplace as well as in Medicaid. In Pharmacy, customers face a fragmented and inefficient system which compromises quality care and increases costs. Our vision is to create an entirely new approach, so that we can lower the total drug spend while improving the health of the patients we serve. We offer a suite of clinical and cost management solutions that integrate our specialty, medical pharmacy, and PBM capabilities. Our solutions offer customers a comprehensive approach to managing the quality and cost of pharmaceutical care, for any drug, at any provider site of service, under any benefit.

"We are also gaining traction on our Medicaid initiatives where we have created new models of care for special populations that integrate the pharmaceutical, physical and behavioral health management of individuals with Serious Mental Illness as well as those dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. Whether through our traditional businesses or through innovating and implementing new strategies for growth, Magellan is well positioned to shape the future of health care."


"We completed a strong 2012, exceeding our segment profit guidance for the year," said Jonathan N. Rubin, chief financial officer. "We posted high quality results, reflecting key new business implementations, improved cost of care management, and a lower administrative expense ratio. We achieved these results, while making significant investments in our Medicaid and Pharmacy strategies. Combined with our financial strength, this positions us well for 2013 and beyond.

"We are reaffirming our guidance for 2013, which calls for net revenue in the range of $3.56 billion to $3.74 billion, and net income in the range of $91 million to $109 million. Additionally, we expect segment profit for 2013 to be in the range of $250 million to $270 million. Based upon the impact of share repurchase activity through February 22, 2013, but not considering any potential future share repurchases, we are adjusting our diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the year to 27.8 million, resulting in an EPS range of $3.27 to $3.92."
