Are there any circumstances under which you wouldn’t retain a pharmacy’s staff?

We certainly haven’t encountered this situation. Perhaps if all the staff wanted to retire, but we would try to convince them that we’d like them to stay. Ultimately, if someone wants to leave, they will leave.

I heard that a lot of pharmacy acquisitions have had trouble closing. Why is this, and what makes you different?

The biggest obstacle to closing the purchase of a pharmacy occurs when the buyer needs to get bank or other financing to raise enough cash to pay you (sometimes called a financing condition in an offer to buy your business). As lenders are now being much more careful with the amount of money that they’re willing to lend, sellers are often finding that they accept an offer and then are trapped for up to half a year while the buyer attempts to convince lenders to lend the money. And when they cannot, the seller is then forced to go back to buyers half a year later to see if they’re still interested. We are increasingly finding that sellers are getting trapped in that circumstance. And, understandably, buyers are much less willing to work with a seller after they have been rejected before.

At Neighbourly, all of our transactions are made in cash and do not rely on third-party financing.

How do you keep the transactions confidential?

We stake our reputation on our integrity, which is paramount to any transaction. To ensure integrity, confidentiality is a must.

What’s the difference between a purchaser and a broker?

A Broker is a person or company you contract to sell your pharmacy and for that privilege they charge you a fee. We are not that person or company. We buy, we operate. Nothing else. Working with us means that you do not need to share any of the value you have created with someone else.

How long will the process of selling my pharmacy take?

You are in control of that timeline. You decide how quickly or how slowly you wish to proceed.

Once we have the basic information, we can turn around an offer for you in days. And once we both agree on terms, we can generally close in less than two months.

(Of course, because the timeline for college notification is different in each province, the exact timeline can change.)
