“In our June quarter, AmerisourceBergen delivered solid performance and made significant progress on strategic initiatives,” said Steven H.

In addition, we recently enhanced our financial flexibility by increasing the borrowing capacity of our revolver and our securitization programs. Not only are we on track to meet our objectives for the full fiscal year, but we have taken important steps to strengthen our ability to generate sustainable long term growth that benefits all of our stakeholders.”
