Leading Experts in Retail Pharmacy M&A


The partners of Triangle Healthcare Advisors have advised on more Retail Pharmacy deals than any other advisors. You could not be in better hands.

Rob Monahan was the Vice President of Mergers & Acquisitions for Walgreens where he spent nearly 8 years. In this capacity he led teams that acquired hundreds of retail pharmacies. From RiteAid, Duane Reade, and USA Drug to scores of independent and small file-buy transactions, Rob was involved in all facets of every transaction and his knowledge of valuation and structuring can help you to maximize your opportunity.  Senior Advisor Scott Burkoth will provide input gained from his nearly ten years as a Regional Acquisition Manager for Walgreens Retail M&A team where he focused his efforts on acquiring independent pharmacies in over 200 transactions. From small-to-large, we have you covered. We know retail pharmacy deals inside and out.

Retail Pharmacies have been consolidating for many years, and demand is strong. Reimbursement continues to be under pressure for all pharmacies. Gross margin pressure is impacting all providers and making it harder to make a living. Retail pharmacies must fill more and more prescriptions just to make the same amount of money. Payor created restrictive networks limit the prescriptions it is possible to fill. On the positive side, corporate acquirers continue to do deals to fuel their same-store growth and take out the competition. Fortunately, there are multiple acquirers in the space including the large providers: Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid, as well as smaller regional players, who are actively buying. The future is bright for M&A activity with relatively high valuations. Take advantage of this. It may not continue forever. 

If you have a Retail Pharmacy business to sell, Triangle Healthcare Advisors can provide you with excellent guidance for an optimal outcome. We literally wrote the book on how to do Retail Pharmacy deals. We have excellent relationships with the leadership at Walgreens, Rite Aid and CVS, as well as across the private equity landscape.
