The nation’s largest drugstore chain logged more than $72 billion in sales last year and a 15% increase in annual profit. Walgreen expanded its commercial pharmacy book by striking deals with Express Scripts and Caremark. It also launched a pharmacy-led health initiative with AmerisourceBergen, which will allow the drugstore to create a wholesale-retail model that will reduce costs and increase patient access. As the Affordable Care Act continues to transform the healthcare landscape, CEO Gregory D. Wasson said the company aims to deliver double-digit growth in earnings per share this year.
