Fred’s Inc. Buys EntrustRx

Specialty pharmaceutical companies are still in strong demand, and so are specialty pharmacies. Three deals in the first quarter of 2015 have been announced, the most recent being last week’s $66 million acquisition of Reeves-Sain Drug Store, Inc., a private specialty and retail pharmacy company, by Fred’s Inc. (NASDAQ: FRED). Fred’s sells general merchandise through 661 retail discount stores and full-service pharmacies in the southeastern United States. This transaction nets it a single Reeves-Sain retail pharmacy in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and Columbus, Mississippi.
