European Commission clears acquisition of PharMerica by Walgreens, KKR

The European Commission announced it has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of PharMerica (PMC) by KKR & Co. (KKR) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA). The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns, because PharMerica has no actual or planned activities in the European Economic Area.

Leerink convinced Amazon entering drug distribution within two years
After calls with pharmacy benefit managers and retail pharmacy specialists, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says she's convinced that Amazon.com (AMZN) "will almost certainly" enter the drug distribution value chain within two years, evolving into a more disruptive offering over time. Amazon's move is most threatening for retail pharmacies Walgreens Boots Alliance (WAB), CVS Health (CVS) and Wal-Mart (WMT), Gupte tells investors in a research note. The analyst calls Amazon both an opportunity and threat for Express Scripts (ESRX) and views UnitedHealth (UNH) and Humana (HUM) as "largely buffered." Gupte's conversations with specialists indicate Amazon is hiring relevant talent and is in active discussions with mid-market pharmacy benefit managers and possibly even with large players such as Prime Therapeutics. It is believed Amazon will start by capturing share in both the cash paying and third party mail order and possibly specialty pharmacy segments, Gupte notes. She expects Anthem (ANTM), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI) will likely to contemplate Amazon's entry in their upcoming PBM contract decisions.

Walgreens downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Ricky Goldwasser downgraded Walgreens Boots Alliance to Equal Weight from Overweight, as he expects the company's guidance to come in below consensus estimates when it is provided later this month. The key drivers he cites are recent Part D preferred network exclusions, as well as reimbursement cuts in the U.K. and reimbursement pressure in the U.S. Goldwasser, who notes the company's growth is slowing, cut his price target on Walgreens shares to $85 from $95.

Walgreens growth from Rite Aid stores not priced in, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says he remains positive on Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) given his expectation for sustained double-digit earnings growth over the next few years. The acquisition of Rite Aid (RAD) stores will yield incremental earnings growth in the next few years that's not yet priced into the stock, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. He believes that while Amazon (AMZN) risk to front-end pharmaceutical sales "is real," Walgreens has done better than peers in "weathering the storm." The analyst has a Buy rating on the shares with a $95 price target.

SoftBank eyes acquisitions to create $300B asset-management arm, Bloomberg says
SoftBank Group (SFTBF) is looking at further acquisitions in the financial sector in an effort to establish a $300B asset management arm that would include its $93B Vision Fund over the next four to five years, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the matter. SoftBank, which agreed to acquire Fortress Investment Group (FIG) for $3.3B in February, is mulling investments in the space such as acquiring traditional investment firms or taking stakes in major private equity shops like KKR (KKR).

AmerisourceBergen settlement ups odds of PharMerica switch, says Baird
Baird analyst Eric Coldwell said AmerisourceBergen's (ABC) 10-Q last week showed that the company and PharMerica (PMC) have tentatively agreed to settle their long-running legal fight, which he reads as significantly increasing the odds of AmerisourceBergen displacing incumbent Cardinal Health (CAH) after KKR (KKR) and minority investor Walgreens (WBA) complete their deal to buy PharMerica. Coldwell has a Neutral rating and $89 price target on AmerisourceBergen shares.

KKR adds $5 per share to Pandora value, says Needham
Noting that Pandora (P) announced it had raised $150M by selling a 5-year, 8% convertible preferred security to KKR (KKR), Needham analyst Laura Martin calculates that adding KKR to the Pandora story adds $5 per share to the latter's value, implying that it should trade up to $15 per share on the news over time. The analyst believes KKR provides a financial safety net, and expects KKR's exit time frame to be 5 years, giving public shareholders a clearer exit path. She reiterates a Buy rating and $16 price target on Pandora's shares.

AmerisourceBergen may benefit from PharMerica takeover, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen believes AmerisourceBergen (ABC) could benefit from KKR's (KKR) buyout of PharMerica (PMC). KKR and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA), which uses AmerisourceBergen as a supplier, are forming a new private company which would hold PharMerica, Larsen tells investors in a research note. He believes PharMerica may switch away from its current supplier Cardinal Health (CAH) as a result of today's deal and use AmerisourceBergen. Any potential change in distributor contracts would likely occur in the second half of 2018, the analyst adds.
