Form 8-K for QUEST DIAGNOSTICS INC

Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On March 10, 2014, Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (the "Company") issued a press release announcing that it completed the recently announced acquisition of Solstas Lab Partners Group and its subsidiaries. In conjunction with the completion of the Solstas transaction, the Company announced that it raised its full-year 2014 financial guidance for results from continuing operations, excluding special items:

         Full year 2014 revenues are expected to increase 2% to 4% over the full
          year 2013, versus the prior guidance of flat to down 2%.


         Adjusted earnings per diluted share are expected to be between $3.95
          and $4.15, versus the prior guidance of between $3.90 and $4.10.

The Company stated that updated guidance for the full year 2014 reflects unseasonably harsh winter weather conditions during February, which have negatively impacted the Company's performance. The Company now estimates the impact of weather to first quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share to be approximately $0.10.

A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
