The company is the product of the recent merger between U.S. drugstore operator Walgreens and European retailer Alliance Boots, a tie-up aimed at giving each entity broader international geographic reach and clout with drug makers. Walgreens operates some 8,000 stores, while Boots operates thousands of European stores and has a strong portfolio of private label brands. The big challenge in 2015 will be the integration of the company even as it searches for a permanent CEO for the combined company.
