ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to the earnings of the investment banks from Anthem Inc.'s $16.4 billion acquisition of WellPoint Health Networks Inc., 14 months after the healthcare deal was first inked. The lead advisors Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which represented Anthem, and Lehman Brothers, each collected $20 million. Information on the fees comes from an S-4 document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission that was filed one month after the deal was announced. The megadeal also gave a boost to three firms with a jump in the league tables for completed merger and acquisition healthcare transactions so far in 2004.
