The proposed $9.4 billion merger between Rite Aid and Walgreens faces increasing scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission. Rite Aid CEO John Standley has criticized what he says is a drawn-out regulatory process but has also admitted that the uncertainty around the deal is taking a hit on the pharmacy and drug store chain's business. In a recent letter to employees, Standley seemed to imply that Rite Aid is mulling how to proceed if the deal falls through.
