Non-GAAP Information:
Omnicare, Inc. ("Omnicare" or the "Company") management believes that presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude items not considered part of the core operating results of the Company and certain non-cash charges and also includes certain tax deduction amounts ("Special Items"), enhances investors` understanding of how Omnicare management assesses the performance of the Company`s business.  Omnicare`s management uses non-GAAP measures for budgeting purposes, measuring actual results, allocating resources and in determining employee incentive compensation.  Omnicare`s method of calculating non-GAAP financial results may differ from those used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
