The following is a portion of the transcript of the first quarter earnings call held by Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. on April 30, 2008 at 4:30 PM, EST via teleconference.



Glen Tullman—Allscripts—Chairman, CEO

…Finally, I want to comment on our proposed merger. Bringing Allscripts and Misys Healthcare together, represents a compelling opportunity for our clients and for our stockholders, of both companies, to participate in a combined organization with significant potential, including a major cross-selling opportunity, that will be an important driver of our growth in future years.

Mike Lawrie, the CEO of Misys plc, and I have shared a vision of where healthcare needs to go. Toward a safer, higher quality of care, and more efficient system, that is connected and interoperable. And this transaction will aggressively move us in that direction. We have teams who are working together on plans, that will make the merger as seamless as possible to our clients. And we believe the anticipated cost synergies will be quickly realized.

We see this as a perfect merger. A great fit strategically with shared vision between the companies, for building an inoperable connected healthcare system, and a shared culture of competition and performance among the team. We remain confident that this business combination is the best outcome for our clients, our employees and our shareholders, and pending regulatory approvals, we are hoping to close the transaction late summer.

So let me conclude with a few comments. For years we have talked about the market for clinical software, connectivity, and information services driven through physicians. That market is here today. And with the proposed merger, Allscripts will be even better positioned than in the past, to capitalize on the opportunity. Through our broad and industry-leading product suite, and our ability to deliver across the board…



Bill Davis—Allscripts—CFO

…We are also very excited about our pending merger with Misys Healthcare, which will result in the combined organization having as its customers nearly one out of every three ambulatory physicians in the United States, with strong revenue and earnings growth potential. We continue to work toward the closing in the late summer timeframe, and may even have an opportunity to accelerate such timing depending on the extent of an SEC review of our proxy statement…
