The Wall Street Journal: Walgreens makes takeover bid for drug distributor AmerisourceBergen


Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. has made a takeover approach to drug distributor AmerisourceBergen Corp., a move that could help boost profitability at the drugstore giant and insulate it against external threats in an increasingly competitive health-care landscape. Representatives of Walgreens Chief Executive Stefano Pessina reached out several weeks ago to representatives of Amerisource CEO Steven Collis, according to people familiar with the matter.
