PTSM: Pharmaceutical Technology Sourcing and Management
Volume 10, Issue 4
AmerisourceBergen reported that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire a minority stake in Profarma, a pharmaceutical wholesaler in Brazil. In addition, AmerisourceBergen and Profarma will establish a joint venture for specialty distribution and services. The company expects to invest a total of approximately $100 million, and the transaction is expected to close in the June quarter of 2014.

AmerisourceBergen will purchase up to a 19.9% minority stake by offering $22.50 per share for shares offered in a primary offering by Profarma. This distribution joint venture will include Profarma’s existing specialty businesses and an equity investment from AmerisourceBergen. As a result, each company will own a 50% stake in the joint venture.
