Walgreens Boots Alliance Reports 2018 Q1 Results. Retail Pharmacy USA continues to grow!


Walgreens Boots Alliance, inc. (NASDAQ:WBA) announced financial results today for the 2018 Q1, which ended November 30, 2017. A lot of eyes have been focusing on Walgreen's Retail Pharmacy USA Segment, as pharmacy sales increased 13% YOY last quarter due to prescription volume. 

Now that the 2018 Q1 results are in, we can see the results from The Hade Platform data collection and visualization.  Yet again, Walgreens did not disappoint, as this quarter was also led by continued prescription volume and market share growth in Retail Pharmacy USA.

Retail Pharmacy USA had first quarter sales of $22,489 Million, an increase of 8.9 percent over the year-ago quarter. Retail Pharmacy International had first quarter sales of $3,083 Million, an increase of 4.1 percent from the year-ago quarter due to currency translation. Pharmaceutical Wholesale had first quarter sales of $5,718 Million, an increase of 5.6 percent from the year-ago quarter. The interactive charts below showcase the results. 

 

 We cannot forget about the Rite Aid (NYSE:Rad) deal that was made in September, however we will not see any results from the purchase of those stores this quarter as Walgreens Boots Alliance continues to expect ownership of the remaining stores to be transferred in phases, with the goal being to complete the store transfers in spring 2018. On September 19, 2017 the company announced it had secured regulatory clearance of 1,932 stores, three distribution centers and related inventory from Rite Aid Corporation for $4.375 billion in cash and other consideration.
