CEO commentary

“WBA exited a solid second quarter with acceleration in February, adding to our confidence in driving strong growth in the second half of the year. With the closing of VillageMD’s acquisition of Summit Health, WBA is now one of the largest players in primary care, with best-in-class assets across the care continuum. Both Walgreens and Boots are performing well by delivering compelling value to consumers, playing a critical role as community health destinations, and successfully navigating a challenging environment. We will continue to take bold actions to create sustainable long-term shareholder value,” CEO of the company, Rosalind Brewer said in a press release.

The stock was up by around 1% in pre-market trading following the latest results.

The stock is down by 11.83% year-to-date at $32.96 a share.
