Rite Aid, Albertsons set August 13 deadline for election form of consideration

Rite Aid Corporation and Albertsons Companies, Inc. announced that, in connection with the pending merger between Albertsons and Rite Aid, the election deadline for holders of shares of Rite Aid common stock, former service providers that are holders of Rite Aid restricted stock units and holders of Rite Aid restricted share awards, as applicable, to elect the form of consideration they wish to receive in connection with the merger, pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, is 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 13, 2018. Accordingly, an election will be valid only if a properly completed and signed election form, together with all required documents and materials set forth in the election form, is received by Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., the exchange agent for the transaction, by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 13, 2018. Rite Aid stockholders who hold their shares through a bank, broker or other nominee may be subject to an earlier deadline and should carefully read the instructions from their bank, broker or nominee regarding making elections for their shares. The election deadline does not impact the deadline for Rite Aid stockholders to vote on the Merger Agreement and related proposals described in the proxy statement, which will be considered at the special meeting of Rite Aid stockholders scheduled for August 9, 2018. Rite Aid stockholders are encouraged to vote their shares if they have not already done so.

Amazon news removes 'unprecedented overhang' on drug sellers, says Mizuho
After CNBC reported yesterday afternoon that Amazon (AMZN) has decided to shelve its plan to sell and distribute pharmaceutical products, Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes said she had thought Amazon's current logistics and distribution model would not translate into healthcare. However, based on conversations with investors, she believes the magnitude of the overhang that Amazon presented for drug distributors and retail pharmacies was "unprecedented." While drug pricing is still a concern, she notes that the CNBC report removes one overhang on the drug supply chain stocks. Hynes remain a buyer of CVS Health (CVS) and Walgreens (WBA) and keeps Neutral ratings on Rite Aid (RAD) as well as on drug distributors AmerisourceBergen (ABC), Cardinal Health (CAH) and McKesson (MCK).

Fred's CEO resignation 'fire but no sale,' says Loop Capital
In a research note titled "CEO resigns - Fire but no sale," Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf notes that Fred's (FRED) has announced the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Michael Bloom, effective as of April 24, 2018. Joseph Anto, Fred's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will serve as Interim Chief Executive Officer. Additionally, the analyst points out that Alden Capital owns 24% of Fred's shares and its President, Heath Freeman, is now Chairman of the Board of Fred's. According to Freeman in a press release, "After the Company was not able to purchase certain assets from the Rite Aid Corporation (RAD)...the timing was right, both for Mike [Bloom] and the Company, for him to step down." Wolf reiterates a Hold rating and $4 price target on Fred's shares.

Amazon creates another competitive advantage with PillPack, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes Amazon.com's (AMZN) acquisition of PillPack creates a formidable competitor to brick-and-mortar pharmacy peers. Shares of CVS Health (CVS), Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) and Rite Aid (RAD) are trading lower following the news. PillPack provides a full-service online pharmacy experience and delivers medication in pre-sorted dose packaging for customers across the U.S., Sebastian tells investors in a research note. The deal creates another competitive advantage over competing e-commerce platforms as Amazon seeks to integrate its pharmacy business with other verticals with high purchase frequency like grocery, the analyst adds. Amazon this morning also announced the expansion of Delivery Partners, a service enabling individuals to build small parcel delivery businesses in support of Amazon's e-commerce growth. Sebastian thinks the delivery service partner initiative represents an important step in last-mile delivery, particularly as customer demand for two-hour delivery increases with the increasing adoption of Prime Now. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Amazon.com with a $1,800 price target.

Amazon deal creates significant overhang on Rx channel sentiment, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan Analyst Lisa Gill said Amazon's (AMZN) agreement to acquire PillPack is expected to drive a "significant overhang" on sentiment across the prescription channel, even though she doesn't expect PillPack to capture a material share of the market in the near term. While the deal establishes an initial foothold for Amazon in the mail pharmacy space, she thinks it will take time to scale up and she does not believe PillPack's unit dose packaging technology is unique. Gill also noted that Express Scripts (ESRX) said it would remove PillPack from its pharmacy network in 2016 on allegations it had misrepresented itself as a retail pharmacy and not a mail pharmacy, though within weeks PillPack was added back by the PBM. Shares of retail pharmacy operators CVS Health (CVS), Walgreens (WBA) and Rite Aid (RAD) have all been pressured by the news of Amazon's deal, as have the shares of drug distributors AmerisourceBergen (ABC), Cardinal Health (CAH) and McKesson (MCK). Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO), an operator of a specialty pharmacy, is also sharply lower following the announcement from Amazon.
