Alliance Boots ceases acquisition talks for Mexican wholesaler

ZUG, Switzerland — Following reports in the media in Mexico and Chile of discussions between Alliance Boots and Grupo Casa Saba and its shareholders, Alliance Boots on Wednesday confirmed that it has stopped all discussions with Casa Saba and its shareholders in connection with an investment in Casa Saba or a purchase of certain of Casa Saba’s assets. 

Alliance Boots' decision not to invest has been based on its inability to determine the current financial situation of Casa Saba, the company reported.
