Cardinal Health - Pharmacy Transition Strategy
Since initially launching these services in October 2008, Cardinal Health's Transition Strategy and Management team has worked with more than 125 pharmacists interested in buying or selling an independent pharmacy. Because Cardinal Health serves more than 5,000 independent pharmacies throughout the United States, the company is uniquely positioned to match potential buyers and sellers and to help develop acquisition and exit strategies that take into consideration the specific challenges these owners face.
"Cardinal Health understands that to many independent pharmacists, planning for the future of their businesses is much like planning for the future of their families," said Jimmy Neil, vice president of Transition Strategy and Management for Cardinal Health. "It's extremely important - but it can also be a complicated, lengthy and emotional process. Studies show that ownership of more than 60 percent of community pharmacies will change hands within the next 10 years, so we're committed to making sure that independent pharmacies have all of the information and expertise they need to buy, sell or create a long-term exit strategy for their business."
Cardinal Health's Transition Strategy and Management team can help independent pharmacists to determine the best timing to buy or sell a pharmacy, learn how to structure the sales transaction and understand what kind of additional outside counsel they need.
Cardinal Health can also help independent pharmacy buyers to:
- Determine whether to pursue a start-up or acquisition
- Locate and qualify potential sellers
- Learn how to get attractive financing and how to negotiate a fair purchase price
- Create a long-term business plan, complete with a built-in exit strategy and
- Redesign newly purchased pharmacies to create a fresh, more efficient workflow.
Additionally, Cardinal Health can help independent pharmacy sellers to:
- Locate and qualify potential buyers
- Learn how to market their business for sale and how to negotiate a fair sales price and
- Determine how to invest the proceeds and what their role will be following the sale.
"Cardinal Health offered me a tremendous amount of personal, hands-on support to guide me through every step of finding and buying the right pharmacy," said John D. Ortego, PharmD, owner of Parkside Pharmacy in Sacramento, Calif. "They helped me learn about different pharmacy business models, negotiate the lease, understand the financing issues, think through changes I wanted to make to the store's design and even helped me create a long-term business plan. Cardinal Health treated every detail of my pharmacy buying and building experience like it was their own, and their invaluable guidance and expertise played a key role in helping me realize my dream of pharmacy ownership."
Cardinal Health's Transition Strategy and Management services are available to all independent pharmacy owners, pharmacy students and to pharmacists who aren't currently affiliated with an independent pharmacy but are considering independent pharmacy ownership.

American HealthCare Capital
WE HAVE RECENTLY EXPERIENCED AN UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND FOR PHARMACIES!
American HealthCare Capital is a nationwide corporate finance and mergers & acquisitions advisory firm that specializes in meeting the needs of middle market healthcare providers. Our company has served as the healthcare community’s bridge between sellers and buyers for over 23 years. We are active in every modality within healthcare services including but not limited to all types of Pharmacy, Infusion, DME, and Homecare.
With an emphasis on healthcare transactions, we understand the need for a unique approach to the pharmacy sector. Since we’re always in the market, we pride ourselves on our intimate, real-time knowledge of the marketplace. We know who’s buying for a premium, who’s selling for a discount, and what deals can get financing.
Recently, we have been experiencing an unprecedented demand for pharmacies including infusion, compounding, specialty, closed-door, and retail pharmacies. AHC is approached on a daily basis by buyers, ranging from individual investors to national organizations and private equity firms that are looking to expand their services. This presents an outstanding opportunity for owners that are looking to sell their pharmacy.
SELLING YOUR PHARMACY:
When you engage our firm to represent you, it empowers us to give you the maximum exposure in the marketplace. What distinguishes our organization from The Competition is that over the last twenty three years, we have developed the largest data base of qualified buyers, making us the only brand name in the industry. Over a thousand times a day, our state-of-the-art marketing center reaches out to potential buyers and offers them businesses like yours for sale. This gives us the ability to market your company directly to almost every possible type buyer in the United States, therefore maximizing the true value of your company. As a matter of policy, no one will ever see any information about your company, including your name, until a proper Confidentiality Agreement has been executed between the prospective buyer and AHC on your behalf.
AHC utilizes a 30 day listing agreement, whereas our competition usually binds you to at least a 6 month obligation. Because we have immediate access to our proprietary data base of over 100,000 diversified buyers, we are confident that we can reach the right buyer, sometimes in as little as 30 days! If we are unable to sell your company in 30 days, we will continue to market it until the job gets done or you decide you would like to terminate it. We sell listings that our competitors have failed to sell, and our competitors have never sold a listing that we couldn’t sell.
AHC never charges any up-front fees. Our team spends a considerable amount of time, effort, and resources to prepare the marketing material for your listing, and we don’t get paid until the deal closes. We strive to provide the highest quality service and our representatives are available anytime to answer your questions. Call us today for a free consultation with no obligation at +++ (800) 424-1338. Our team is ready when you are!

Sell or Transfer Pharmacy Ownership
It's never too soon to plan for the sale of your pharmacy
As a pharmacy owner, planning for the eventual sale of that pharmacy is one of the most important things you can do -- for yourself and your customers. However, the process of selling an independent pharmacy is extremely complex. Powered by McKesson, RxOwnership is here to help.
RxOwnership provides you with the tools and resources you need to plan for the successful sale and transfer of your pharmacy. With our tools, resources, and especially our Step-by-Step Guide, you'll know exactly what it takes to sell successfully.
Steps for planning your pharmacy's future
If you approach the process of selling your pharmacy in a step-by-step manner, it won't be overwhelming. By giving yourself sufficient time, you can carefully consider and refine what is best for you, your family, your employees, and your community. You will have time to consult with colleagues who are several years ahead of you in the process, and to build a team of specialists around you.
As you think about the ownership transfer of your pharmacy, jot down what you want the pharmacy to be like in 3, 5, or 10 years. This can help you understand how you want to sell your pharmacy -- and to whom.
Financing as part of the sale process.
Many pharmacy owners, sellers, and sales managers attempt to start the ownership transfer process with financing. This is a guaranteed recipe for disappointment. As has been pointed out repeatedly, there are myriad decisions that must be considered and made before considering financing. Financing should only be approached once the succession planning has been completed.
There are many different types of financing available today. Most people think first of traditional lenders such as banks and organizations such as the Small Business Administration (SBA) when they think of financing. Others think of suppliers and wholesalers providing dating of product as a form of financing. In addition to these, financing can come from a current owner "taking back a note." Loans from parents and relatives also are common forms of financing.
Rarely is just one type of financing used in the sale/purchase of a pharmacy. For this reason, it is important to understand the breadth of financing options available.
