Magellan Acquisition

On January 4, 2022, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Magellan. Total consideration for the acquisition was $2,491 million, consisting of $2,431 million in cash and $60 million related to the fair value of replacement equity awards associated with pre-combination service. The purchase price has been adjusted to reflect the net effective settlement of preexisting relationships between the Company and Magellan of $70 million. The Company recognized $8 million and $100 million of acquisition related expenses related to Magellan for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively.

The Magellan Acquisition was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting that requires assets acquired and liabilities assumed to be recognized at fair value as of the acquisition date. The significant areas of the assessment of fair value that remain preliminary include identifiable intangible assets and goodwill, premium and related receivables, medical claims liability, and income taxes, and accordingly, the Company has recorded provisional amounts which are subject to adjustment. Measurement period adjustments will be recorded in the period in which they are determined, as if they had been completed at the acquisition date.
The Company's preliminary allocation of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date of January 4, 2022 is as follows ($ in millions):
Assets acquired and liabilities assumed  
Cash and cash equivalents
$ 998 
Premium and related receivables
Short-term investments
Other current assets
Long-term investments
Restricted deposits
Property, software and equipment
Intangible assets (a)
Other long-term assets 50 
Total assets acquired 3,068 
Medical claims liability 247 
Accounts payable and accrued expenses 495 
Return of premium payable 53 
Unearned revenue
Current portion of long-term debt
Long-term debt (b)
Deferred tax liabilities (c)
Other long-term liabilities 69 
Total liabilities assumed 1,542 
Mezzanine equity 32 
Total identifiable net assets 1,494 
Goodwill (d)
Total assets acquired and liabilities assumed $ 2,491 

The Company has made the following preliminary fair value adjustments based on information reviewed through September 30, 2022. Significant fair value adjustments are noted as follows:

(a) The identifiable intangible assets acquired are to be measured at fair value as of the completion of the acquisition. The fair value of intangible assets will be determined primarily using variations of the income approach, which is based on the present value of the future after-tax cash flows attributable to each identified intangible asset. Other valuation methods, including the market approach and cost approach, will be considered in estimating the fair value. The identifiable intangible assets include purchased contract rights, trade names, provider contracts, and developed technologies. The Company has estimated the fair value of intangible assets to be $751 million with a weighted average life of 13 years. The Company adjusted its estimate of the identifiable intangible assets during the third quarter, resulting in additional amortization of $15 million.

The fair values and weighted average useful lives for identifiable intangible assets acquired are as follows:
Fair Value Weighted Average Useful Life (in years)
Purchased contract rights $ 470  13
Provider contracts 100  15
Trade names 80  17
Developed technologies 101  5
Total intangible assets acquired $ 751  13
(b) Debt is required to be measured at fair value under the acquisition method of accounting. The fair value of Magellan's Senior Notes and Credit Agreement assumed in the acquisition was $535 million. In January 2022, the Company paid off Magellan's debt acquired in the transaction using Magellan's cash on hand.

(c) The preliminary deferred tax liabilities are presented net of $116 million of deferred tax assets.

(d) Goodwill is estimated at $997 million and primarily relates to synergies expected from the acquisition and the assembled workforce of Magellan. The assignment of goodwill to the Company’s respective segments has not been completed at this time, but the majority of goodwill is expected to be allocated to the Specialty segment. The majority of the goodwill is not deductible for income tax purposes.

PANTHERx Rare Divestiture

On July 14, 2022, the Company completed the previously announced sale of PANTHERx Rare (PANTHERx) for $1,373 million. The Company recognized a gain of $490 million, or $382 million after-tax, which is included in investment and other income on the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Spanish and Central European Divestiture

On July 25, 2022, as part of the Company’s previously announced review of strategic alternatives for its international portfolio, the Company announced it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its ownership stakes in its Spanish and Central European businesses, including Ribera Salud, Torrejón Salud, and Pro Diagnostics Group.

As of September 30, 2022, the assets and liabilities of the Spanish and Central European businesses were considered held for sale resulting in $666 million of assets held for sale in Other Current Assets and $582 million of liabilities held for sale in Accounts Payable and Accrued Expenses on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The majority of the held for sale assets were previously reported as cash and cash equivalents, premium and trade receivables, and property, software and equipment. During the third quarter, the Company recorded an impairment charge primarily related to intangible assets and goodwill associated with the pending divestiture of $165 million, or $138 million after-tax.
