Cigna to weigh options after court rules on Anthem deal

Cigna Corp. said it still plans to evaluate its options in connection with its pending merger with Anthem Inc. once the court releases its decision on the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust lawsuit, according to a Form 8-K filing.

Cigna's statement follows the announcement that District Judge John Bates blocked the proposed merger between Aetna Inc. and Humana Inc. The Justice Department sued to block the pending mergers between Anthem and Cigna, and Aetna and Humana on competition concerns.

Regarding the notice that Anthem has elected to extend the termination date of the deal, Cigna said it has made no determination, including whether to push for the termination of the transaction or not.

Cigna and Anthem have accused each other of breaching the merger agreement. The health insurers refused to share the letters that could reveal disagreements between their executives, but U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered them to do so.
