Re. Media reports Walgreens Boots Alliance

Dear Mr Hogan,

Further to your letter on 10th December 2021. Thank you for your enquiries into recent media reports concerning Boots.

Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) does not comment on market speculation and Boots is an important part of the Group.

As underlined during the last WBA investor conference, the Group continues to be very pleased with the performance of Boots and the International division.

Please be assured if there is any significant news concerning WBA and Boots, we will communicate with our team members and Mandate Trade Union as appropriate.

We understand that such media speculation can be unsettling, and we are encouraging our teams to stay focussed on the important roles we play for our customers and patients, particularly at this, our busiest time of year.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours sincerely,

Rachel Nolan
HR Operations Manager Boots Ireland
