06:04 EDTWAGWalgreen exercises option to acquire remaining 55% of Alliance Boots
Walgreens said it has exercised its option to complete the second step of its strategic transaction with Alliance Boots GmbH ahead of the original option period, which was between February and August 2015. The transaction, subject to shareholder and various regulatory approvals, would fully combine the two companies to form the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise. This action follows the launch of the companies’ long-term strategic partnership in June 2012, when Walgreens acquired a 45% equity ownership in Alliance Boots, with the option to proceed to a full combination by acquiring the remaining 55% of Alliance Boots in three years’ time. Walgreens expects to close the transaction in the first quarter of calendar 2015. A new holding company to be formed in connection with the transaction will be named Walgreens Boots Alliance, and will include four divisions: Walgreen Co.; Boots; Pharmaceutical Wholesale and International Retail; and Global Brands. In addition, the combined company is establishing a cross-divisional global pharmacy market access group. CEO and board member Greg Wasson will be president and CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Stefano Pessina, executive chairman of Alliance Boots, will be executive vice chairman of the combined company. Jim Skinner will serve as the non-executive chairman of the board of directors for the combined company.
