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.
