Last quote about Walgreens

Ajay Jain - Pivotal Research Group
With this process taking close to two years to come to a conclusion, we think the final outcome and the structure of the transaction were well anticipated. However, with each recent iteration of the transaction, the economics appear to be shifting more and more in Walgreens' favor.feedback

With the new agreement [Walgreens] will still gain incremental scale and volume to optimize efficiency, as well as 70% [to] 80% of the geographic coverage of the merger.feedback

Ajay Jain - Pivotal Research Group

If you look at the purchase price per store, it is paying $2.5 million per store. The terms are more attractive.feedback

Stefano Pessina

When we first began discussions with Rite Aid, it was with the vision of increasing our network and our population coverage. The stores we are proposing to purchase are more than enough to create the potential opportunity for optimization of our expanded network and… to create greater efficiency above and beyond the synergies the deal is expected to deliver.feedback

Stefano Pessina

If we were wrong, and what I believe was wrong, I believe that at the end of the day we could find our role in the new environment.feedback

Stefano Pessina

It's a business or industry where the consolidation has been really quite significant and so there is not a lot of new things they could do. If you analyze this coldly, you would see this is not the best opportunity for Amazon and you would see the market has changed so many times in the past, and the big players in this market have survived.feedback

Stefano Pessina

This new transaction extends our growth strategy and offers additional operational and financial benefits. It will allow us to expand and optimize our retail pharmacy network in key markets in the U.S., including the Northeast, and provide customers and patients with greater access to convenient, affordable care. We believe this new transaction addresses competitive concerns previously raised with respect to the prior transaction and will streamline and simplify the transition for customers, team members and other stakeholders.feedback

Jessica St. Clair

She would get nervous if I went to Walgreens, so what would she think if I told her I had cancer? I'd tell her I was going to work and I'd go to chemo and with the cold cap.feedback

Miriam Zouzounis

Those tobacco products aren't 100 per cent of our revenue, but they are an anchor product. Even at 15 per cent of our stock, it's what brings people through the door. We can't compete with Safeway or Walgreens for food and milk items, let alone the online retailers filling the gap for everything else.feedback

Steve Kraus - Ipsos

Amazon could break open the space, . Look at what Amazon has done to malls. In the future, when people say they're going to a Walgreens or CVS, they might instead choose to go to Amazon.com. Without many serious competitors or true threats, these serves have been stagnant for more than 20 years.feedback

Richard Fields

We're hoping that this case and others like it will put a focus on the supply is too great.feedback

Gregory D. Wasson

Innventure will identify the opportunities, create a company, nurture it, then put in a management team to where it stands on its own – and then we move on. What I think is most interesting is that we're looking to help leverage their powerful R. & D. machine with our nimble entrepreneur team to identify the opportunities that they have developed.feedback

Gabriel Weissman - AmerisourceBergen

The issue of opioid abuse is a complex one that spans the full health care spectrum, including manufacturers, wholesalers, insurers, prescribers, pharmacists and regulatory and enforcement agencies.feedback

Tyler Morse - MCR Development

The whole world is a giant Walgreens now. When you go to Paris, London, New York, or St. Louis, it's the same restaurant chains, the same supermarkets. As the world becomes more homogenized, people become interested in a unique product.feedback

Amanda Foster

I've always pushed myself, both mentally and physically, to achieve as much as I can. I believe that age doesn't define my job and I am still ready to take on roles that challenge me.feedback

Kristof Neirynck - Walgreens Boots Alliance

At No7, we believe that beauty isn't about showing off, it's about showing up. And to feel in control of how you show up, it's important to have the best possible skin for your age. Amanda is the perfect choice for this advert- she's a woman doing something extraordinary, whilst defying the conventions of age and showing the impact women can make when they feel at their best.feedback

Stefano Pessina

There is still the challenge in the UK with the NHS having cut the reimbursement. That will continue, though Boots has performed robustly over the key Christmas period, but retailing is still itself quite challenging particularly in the UK, which is our largest market.feedback

Jim Cramer

At this point, it's time for Walgreens to fish or cut bait; that's why I'm so glad the company reportedly just gave the Federal Trade Commission a three-month deadline after which it's going to just walk away. One way or another, Walgreens is getting out of this limbo real soon.feedback

Troyen Brennan - CVS Health

We know that tobacco kills 488,000 people a year in the U.S. How can you sell that kind of thing when you're supposed to be emphasizing health care? Cigarettes are an impulsive buy. When you change availability, you can change the smoking habits of individuals.feedback

Stanton Glantz

It shows that responsible behavior by a pharmacy has public health benefits for the whole population. It was a big enough effect that you could see it in the population level, which is very impressive. We think that this research definitely shows that if pharmacies didn't sell cigarettes, fewer people would smoke, more people would live longer, and fewer people would die.feedback

Stefano Pessina

During the year, we also continued in our effort to get regulatory approval for our acquisition. The only thing I can repeat is that we are actively engaged in dialogue with the FTC and we are doing everything we can to support their work. These discussions include taking into account anything required to gain approval for the transaction.feedback

David Balto

Retail market divestitures are very complex. It's unrealistic to assume that they could get through a divestiture that's this significant in a few weeks.feedback

Michael K. Bloom

We believe that this transaction will also create tremendous opportunities for both our new and existing front of store and pharmacy team members.feedback

Pat Kiernan

I don't understand how hard it is to take the sign off the ATM before you change the software.feedback

Michael Fusco - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

From now until early next year, we've been notifying customers on the screens that the machine will no longer be a Chase ATM. But as long as the Chase brand remains on the screen, it will remain free for customers.feedback

David Balto

An acquisition (of the divested assets) by a supermarket would be a substantial challenge because it's outside their normal area of expertise.feedback

Michael Fusco - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Our customers are using those ATMs less frequently given that our ATM presence has expanded significantly over the last 11 years.feedback

Ross Muken - ISI Group

If they're able to get the Rite Aid deal closed… they continue to cut costs – this company's growing earnings in the teens. That's quite attractive in this market.feedback

Stefano Pessina

The situation, it's very volatile at this time. For sure, the period of uncertainty will be quite long, whatever happens. It's too soon to know what impact it will have on the chain.feedback

David Larsen

Earnings in retail… are solid and somewhat of a relief, given the fact that the new Medicare Part D rates went into effect [Jan. 1] and this quarter reflects the full impact of that incremental volume.feedback

David Larsen

While USA Retail is facing some pressure, we believe that the RAD deal will cause sentiment in USA Retail to shift positively once integration efforts begin.feedback

Ana Gupte - Leerink Research

We see this deal as adding meaningfully to the value proposition of OptumRx, which now manages over 1 billion prescriptions.feedback
