Qualified Pharmacy Sellers and Buyers
VALLEY FORGE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 18, 2013--
AmerisourceBergen Corporation (NYSE:ABC) today announced the launch of
the company’s new Pharmacy Ownership Program, a new network with
resources established to assist independent community pharmacists in
selling their business to prospective buyers or expanding their current
business to additional locations. In conjunction with today’s
announcement, a new website in support of the program, www.buysellpharmacy.com,
is now live.
“We are committed to helping independent community pharmacies meet their
business goals. We understand that the interest of a pharmacy owner may
be different throughout the life of the business – whether a pharmacist
is looking to expand their business to multiple locations, or looking to
downsize in preparation for retirement and potentially sell their
store,” said AJ Caffentzis, senior vice president of sales and
marketing, AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation. “Our team of experienced
pharmacy ownership consultants is available to guide you every step of
the way and provide confidential assistance from the initial planning to
Through the Pharmacy Ownership Program, current pharmacy owners who are
looking to sell their business are matched with qualified buyers who are
interested in purchasing an independent community pharmacy.
AmerisourceBergen’s pharmacy ownership consultants assist both potential
buyers and sellers, without a brokerage fee, to identify a location in
the market area of interest, provide financing options with established
bank partners, and finalize the sale.
“When a store became available to purchase, my first call was to
AmerisourceBergen. We worked together to evaluate the store I was
looking to purchase and its future potential. After some research, we
determined a fair purchase price and AmerisourceBergen even provided a
contact with a bank that specializes in medical loans,” said Scott
Louderback, a community neighborhood pharmacy owner in Lincoln, Neb. “I
communicate weekly with AmerisourceBergen about the deal we completed
and I value their excitement for the opportunity.”
Pharmacists who would like to learn more about the program and speak
confidentially to an experienced pharmacy ownership consultant can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
