Walgreens Boots Alliance Is Reportedly Considering Going Private
Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) - Get Report , the giant drugstore and healthcare chain, is looking into the prospect of going private, a deal that would be the largest leveraged buyout in history, reports said Tuesday.
People familiar with the matter told Reuters and Bloomberg that the Deerfield, Ill., chain has held informal talks with private-equity firms, wrote TheStreet's Rob Daniel.
The company couldn't immediately be reached for comment by TheStreet. Chief Executive Stefano Pessina is Walgreens' largest holder with about 16%, the reports said.
The people who spoke with Reuters said the chain has retained the investment bank Evercore to explore whether a take-private is feasible.
