|Description of Securities
The securities being registered pursuant to the Companys DCAP III and the SPSIP II (each a Plan, and collectively, the (Plans) represent general obligations (General Obligations) of the Registrant to pay deferred compensation in the future in accordance with the terms of each plan, which are incorporated by reference as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Registration Statement. Eligible employees of the Company (each a Participant) are entitled to defer receipt of certain compensation into the Plans.
Unlike tax qualified retirement accounts, assets for the payment of benefits under the Plans are not held in trust. Rather, distributions under these plans are paid from the Companys general corporate funds, and each Participant and his or her beneficiaries are unsecured general creditors of the Company with no special or prior right to any assets of the Company for payment of any General Obligation.
Amounts deferred into the Plans are credited with earnings at a rate set by the Companys Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee determined that amounts deferred into the Plans on or after January 1, 2010 will be credited with an interest rate equal to 120% of the long-term applicable federal rate, as published each year in December by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The rate of return applicable to the amounts deferred into the Plans is subject to change at the discretion of the Compensation Committee.
The General Obligations are generally payable upon a date or dates selected by the Participant under the Plan, subject to exceptions for in-service withdrawals for an Unforeseeable Emergency (as defined in the Plan) or certain terminations of employment. The General Obligations generally are payable in cash in the form of a lump-sum distribution or in installments, at the election of the Participant.
Participants in the SPSIP II elect whether distributions of their deferred amounts are to be made in a lump sum at separation from service or over up to ten years following separation from service. A different distribution election can be made for a separation from service due to death. Distributions under the SPSIP II are subject to ordinary income taxes.
Participants in the DCAP III may elect to defer the compensation until one or more specified dates in the future, or upon a separation from service, and may elect to take distributions in a lump sum or over up to ten years. If a participant elects to defer compensation until separation from service, separate elections as to timing and form of distribution can be made for separations from service due to retirement, disability or death. However, if the separation from service is not due to retirement, disability or death, the entire account balance is distributed as a lump-sum at a time such payment would comply with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. Distributions under the DCAP III are subject to ordinary income taxes.
|Interests of Named Experts and Counsel
The legality of the securities offered hereby will be passed upon by John G. Saia, Associate General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. Mr. Saia owns, directly and indirectly, less than 1% of the outstanding shares of the Registrants Common Stock.
|Indemnification of Directors and Officers
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the DGCL) provides that a corporation may indemnify directors and officers as well as other employees and agents of the corporation against expenses (including attorneys fees), judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement in connection with specified actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (other than action by or in the right of the corporation a derivative action), if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification only extends to expenses (including attorneys fees) incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of such action, and the DGCL requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. The DGCL provides that it is not exclusive of other indemnification that may be granted by a corporations charter, by-laws, disinterested director vote, stockholder vote, agreement, or otherwise.
The Companys Amended and Restated By-Laws provide that each person who is involved in any actual or threatened action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or officer of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to an employee benefit plan, will be indemnified by the Company to the full extent permitted by the DGCL if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company. The indemnification rights conferred by the Companys By-Laws are not exclusive of any other right to which such person seeking indemnification may be entitled under any law, by-law, agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise. Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation will not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability for (i) any breach of the directors duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) payment of unlawful dividends or unlawful stock purchases or redemptions, or (iv) any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
Article VI of the Companys Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides that to the full extent permitted by the DGCL, as it now exists or may hereafter be amended, no director of the Company will be liable to the Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director.
Section 145 of the DGCL provides, in general, that a corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the corporation against any liability asserted against the person in any such capacity, or arising out of the persons status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify the person against such liability under the provisions of the law.
As permitted by Section 145 of the DGCL, the Company maintains directors and officers liability insurance which provides for payment, on behalf of the directors and officers of the Company and its subsidiaries, of certain losses of such persons (other than matters uninsurable under law) arising from claims, including claims arising under the Securities Act, for acts or omissions by such persons while acting as directors or officers of the Company and/or its subsidiaries, as the case may be.
|Exemption from Registration Claimed
Unless otherwise indicated below as being incorporated herein by reference to another filing with the Commission, each of the following exhibits is filed herewith:
|Opinion of John G. Saia, Associate General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of the Registrant.
|McKesson Corporation Supplemental Profit Sharing Investment Plan II, as amended and restated on July 29, 2014 (Exhibit 10.1 to the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2014, File No. 1-13252, filed with the Commission on October 28, 2014, is incorporated herein by reference).
|McKesson Corporation Deferred Compensation Administration Plan III, as amended and restated July 29, 2014 (Exhibit 10.2 to the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2014, File No. 1-13252, filed with the Commission on October 28, 2014, is incorporated herein by reference).
|Consent of John G. Saia, Associate General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of the Registrant (included in Exhibit 5.1).
|Consent of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm, Deloitte & Touche LLP.
|Power of Attorney (included on signature page of this Registration Statement).
|The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:
|To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:
|To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
|To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the Calculation of Registration Fee table in the effective Registration Statement;
|To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(i) and (a)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement.
|That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
|To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
|The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrants annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plans annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new Registration Statement relating to the securities offered herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
|Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in San Francisco, California on September 2, 2016.
