CVS-Aetna deal scheduled to close this week after getting final regulatory nod

November 26, 2018 / Evan Sweeney

CVS Health's $69 billion acquisition of Aetna is scheduled to close on Wednesday, according to the latest financial filing. After promising the deal would close before Thanksgiving, the companies were forced to push back the closing date last week while waiting for two states—New Jersey and New York—to approve the merger. But the deal has received the final regulatory approval necessary to finalize the acquisition, CVS said in a financial filing on Monday. The Department of Justice signed off on the deal last month after Aetna agreed to sell off its Part D business.
