"The expansion of the Euroapteek’s network primarily brings added value to our customers as all the locations of Ülikooli Apteek fit very well with our pharmacy network without any overlap," said Inna Mets, Chairman of the Management Board of Euroapteek OÜ. "We would like to continue developing the Euroapteek’s network with the family of Ülikooli Apteek and thus provide our customers with the best and most convenient service."
The transaction is subject to the approval of the Estonian Competition Authority. After the approval the network of Euroapteek will consist of 73 pharmacies, 54 of which are owned by Euroapteek, and 19 are operating under a franchise agreement.
Euroapteek is a part of the Euroapotheca Group owned by Maxima's owners. Euroapotheca group currently has a network of over 450 pharmacies in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland and Ukraine. http://www.euroapteek.ee/
