Citing sources close to the negotiations, The New York Post on Friday reported that private-equity giant Cerberus Capital may emerge as a possible white knight for Walgreens and Rite Aid by acquiring the 865 stores being divested. "Cerberus had participated in Walgreen’s December auction of the stores in question, losing to a winning bid of $950 million from regional drug chain Fred’s, according to two sources close to the situation," The Post reported. "Walgreens had rejected Cerberus’ bid partly because it was concerned the Federal Trade Commission would not approve a private-equity buyer, according to the sources." Either way, the deal is "not in danger of collapsing" even though the deal technically expires Friday, The Post added. (The New York Post)
