Greg Weishar, PharMerica Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, said, "PharMerica's third quarter 2016 financial results reflect slower than expected growth in new sales in our core Institutional Pharmacy business. We remain optimistic that we will achieve significantly improved results in this year's fourth quarter. We expect a sequential 3% to 4% increase in prescriptions dispensed; lower cost of goods due to further improvements in drug purchasing; continued strong growth in our diversified pharmacy businesses; and contributions from recent and planned acquisitions.
