Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 12, 2020, AmerisourceBergen Corporation (the "Company" or "AmerisourceBergen") issued a news release announcing that it priced $500 million aggregate principal amount of the Company's 2.800% Senior Notes due May 15, 2030 (the "Notes") in an underwritten registered public offering. The news release is being furnished with this Current Report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 12, 2020, the Company entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement"), by and among the Company and BofA Securities, Inc., MUFG Securities Americas Inc., and U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc. on behalf of themselves and as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the "Underwriters"). The Underwriting Agreement provides for the issuance and sale by the Company, and the purchase by the Underwriters, of the Notes. The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company. The Underwriting Agreement contains representations, warranties, conditions and covenants of the parties thereto and provides for indemnification by each of the Company and the Underwriters against certain liabilities and contribution provisions in respect of those liabilities. The Company expects to consummate the sale of the Notes to the Underwriters, which is subject to the closing conditions specified in the Underwriting Agreement, on May 19, 2020.

The offer and sale of the Notes have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-228489) (the "Shelf Registration Statement"), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 20, 2018.

If the sale of the Notes is consummated pursuant to the terms set forth in the Underwriting Agreement, the Company estimates that it will receive net proceeds of approximately $493.8 million (after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses) from the sale of the Notes. The Company intends to use the net proceeds to redeem all of its 3.500% Senior Notes due November 15, 2021 and for general corporate purposes. Pending application of the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes for the foregoing purposes, the Company expects to invest such proceeds in high-quality, short-term debt securities (although it is not required to do so by the terms of the Notes).

Certain of the underwriters and their affiliates have in the past provided, and may in the future provide, investment banking, commercial banking, derivative transactions and financial advisory services to the Company and its affiliates in the ordinary course of business for which they have received and may continue to receive customary fees and commissions. Specifically, BofASecurities, Inc., MUFG Securities Americas Inc. and U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc. or their affiliates and certain other underwriters have served as underwriters in connection with past senior note offerings by the Company and may serve similar roles in future securities offerings by the Company. Additionally, the underwriters or their affiliates serve various roles in the Company's multi-currency revolving credit facility: BofA Securities, Inc. serves as a joint lead arranger and joint bookrunner and Bank of America, N.A., an affiliate of BofA Securities, Inc., serves as a syndication agent and a lender; and MUFG Bank, Ltd., an affiliate of MUFG Securities Americas Inc., and U.S. Bank National Association, an affiliate of U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc., serve as documentation agents and lenders. As of March 31, 2020, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Company's multi-currency revolving credit facility. In addition, MUFG Bank, Ltd. serves as administrator for the Company's receivables securitization facility. As of March 31, 2020, the Company's subsidiary, Amerisource Receivables Financial Corporation, had an aggregate principal amount of $350 million outstanding under the receivables securitization facility. U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc. is an affiliate of the trustee. Lastly, certain of the underwriters or their affiliates also serve as lenders, agents and in other capacities under the Company's credit facilities.

The foregoing is a brief description of certain terms of the Underwriting Agreement and, by its nature, is incomplete. It is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Underwriting Agreement filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report and incorporated herein by reference. The Underwriting Agreement is also filed with reference to, and is hereby made an exhibit to, the Shelf Registration Statement.
