Express Scripts shot up this list after a 2012 merger with rival Medco Health Solutions more than doubled the company’s sales. Last year, the prescription drug plan manager’s revenues continued to increase on the whole — up 10.8% — while profits jumped 40.8% to $1.9 billion. Still, sales fell in both the third and fourth quarters as the company contended with losing the business of insurer — and former Medco customer — UnitedHealth Group, which started handling its medical and pharmacy benefit plans in-house in early 2013. Looking ahead, Express Scripts expects its earnings per share to increase between 10% and 20% annually for the next several years thanks to expected growth from its mail order and specialty drug businesses.
