SEC filing: Cigna expects to give regulatory update on Express Scripts deal soon

Health insurer Cigna has received approvals from 14 states and needs approvals from 15 more states as it navigates its $54 billion acquisition of Express Scripts, the St. Louis County-based pharmacy benefits manager, Cigna said Wednesday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Cigna executives expect to “provide an update related to federal and state regulatory approvals” of the deal in meetings with investors and analysts over the next several weeks, the filing said.

Shareholders for both companies voted Aug. 24 to approve the deal.

The companies are still working with the U.S. Department of Justice to win regulatory approval of the deal, but Cigna said in Wednesday’s SEC filing that it expects the deal to close by the end of the year.
