This company’s Chairman and CEO John Standley opined, “During the quarter, we have been hard at work accelerating our standalone strategy to capitalize on key opportunities to grow our business.

Standley’s perspective

This official applauded Rite Aid for the consistency it showcased over the years in line with the manufacture of a trusted brand of health and wellness. It has an innovative Wellness format, a popular customer loyalty program and top-notch health and wellness services.

The company has important work ahead of it and the official exudes great confidence in the team they have in place. The company also counts on the strategy it has in place. Standley says these two factors are enough to help them, build significant momentum for times ahead.

They are willing to even take risks on anything that   will help them meet up to the diverse and ever evolving needs of their customers. Shareholders are important building blocks of any organization and that is the reason the company seeks to create value for all of them.

Rite Aid says that if all moves according to plan its adjusted EBITDA will stand between $540.0 million and $590.0 million. The business guru has also spoken    in relation to its capital expenditures. It approximates that it will be about $250 million.

The previous quarter incurred some impairment charges which will place the net loss between $440 million and $485 million. Anyway, it will still be higher than the one recorded earlier on.
