DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

This post-effective amendment (the “Post-Effective Amendment”), filed by Cigna Holding Company (formerly known as Cigna Corporation), a Delaware corporation (“Cigna” or the “Company”), relates to the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-219729) (the “Registration Statement”), filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by Cigna, registering an indeterminate amount of debt securities, common stock, preferred stock, warrants, purchase contracts and units of Cigna (the “Securities”).

On December 20, 2018, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 8, 2018, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of June 27, 2018 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Cigna, Express Scripts Holding Company, a Delaware corporation (“Express Scripts”), Halfmoon Parent, Inc. (now known as Cigna Corporation), a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Cigna prior to the Merger (as defined below) (“New Cigna”), Halfmoon I, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Cigna prior to the Merger (“Merger Sub 1”), and Halfmoon II, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Cigna prior to the Merger (“Merger Sub 2”), (a) Merger Sub 1 merged with and into Cigna (the “Cigna Merger”), with Cigna surviving the Cigna Merger as a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Cigna, and (b) Merger Sub 2 merged with and into Express Scripts (the “Express Scripts Merger” and, together with the Cigna Merger, the “Merger”), with Express Scripts surviving the Express Scripts Merger as a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Cigna.  Upon the consummation of the Merger, Cigna and Express Scripts became direct wholly owned subsidiaries of New Cigna.  As a result of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, New Cigna became a publicly traded corporation, and former Cigna stockholders and former Express Scripts stockholders received common stock of New Cigna.  In connection therewith, Cigna has terminated all offerings of the Securities pursuant to the Registration Statement.

In accordance with an undertaking made by Cigna in the Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any Securities which remain unsold at the termination of the offering, Cigna hereby deregisters and removes from registration all Securities reserved for issuance and registered under the Registration Statement that remain unsold as of the date hereof.  The Registration Statement is hereby amended, as appropriate, to reflect the deregistration of such Securities.
