McKesson Announces New Global Headquarters in Las Colinas, Texas

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) today announced the relocation of its
corporate headquarters from San Francisco, California to Las Colinas,
Texas, effective April 1, 2019, expanding upon its presence in the
Dallas area.

We are excited to strengthen our presence in Texas and make Las Colinas
our official global headquarters,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and
chief executive officer, McKesson Corporation. “Governor Abbott and the
Irving/Las Colinas community have provided tremendous support since we
opened our Las Colinas campus last April. Making this move will improve
efficiency, collaboration and cost-competitiveness, while providing an
exceptional work environment for our employees.”

McKesson’s Las Colinas campus is already a key hub for the company.
Employees at the North Texas location perform vital functions for the
company in areas such as operations, information technology, finance and
accounting, marketing and sales, administration and support, purchasing,
and project management.

I’m delighted McKesson, a Fortune 6 company, is making Texas the home
of its new global headquarters,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “The
company has a long record of success in our state. McKesson’s expansion
is an example of the kind of high-quality companies and jobs Texas has
attracted as a result of our focus on economic growth, and I am proud to
welcome them to the Lone Star State.”

McKesson’s Las Colinas campus has achieved a LEED Gold certification,
recognizing its resource efficiency, as well as a WELL Building Silver
certification, the first building standard focused solely on human
health and wellness. Elements of the building are designed to support
employee productivity and wellness, empowering employees to work the way
they like while fostering team collaboration amidst an array of
amenities and enhanced technology capabilities.

We are proud that McKesson has decided to make Irving/Las Colinas its
official, corporate home,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “Irving is an
amazing city with talented, hard-working people and wonderful amenities.
We’re delighted to have yet another Fortune 500 company make Irving
their global headquarters.”

Following the relocation of its headquarters, McKesson will continue to
have a strong presence in California, employing more than 1,400 people,
primarily in distribution operations and sales. The company opened a new
distribution center for its medical-surgical division in Roseville, CA
earlier this year. McKesson Ventures will remain in San Francisco, along
with a technology development team for McKesson’s US Oncology Network.

Move Supports Multi-Year Strategic Growth Initiative

As previously announced on April 25, 2018, McKesson launched a
multi-year strategic growth initiative, inclusive of plans to optimize
the company’s operating and cost structures. The company expects these
initiatives and actions will generate approximately $300 million to $400
million in annual pre-tax gross savings that will be substantially
realized by the end of Fiscal 2021.

As part of our strategic growth initiative, we’ve developed a hub
location strategy, co-locating people based on the type of work they do
to improve teamwork, advance innovation and increase efficiency,” said
Brian Tyler, president and chief operating officer, McKesson
Corporation. “Bringing employee groups together in key locations will
make McKesson a more streamlined and agile company, complementing our
investments and improving operating profit growth for the organization.”

We are taking great effort, care and consideration to make this
transition as seamless as possible for our associates who will be
affected by this transition,” Tyler continued. “It is important to us
that every employee is treated with dignity and respect, consistent with
McKesson’s ICARE shared principles. San Francisco-based employees are
being offered the opportunity to relocate to Las Colinas and other hub
locations. We look forward to bringing even more of our team together in
our new, world-class global headquarters.”
