Diplomat to Acquire LDI Integrated Pharmacy Services

16 Nov 17

Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc. (NYSE: DPLO), has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Leehar Distributors, LLC, doing business as LDI Integrated Pharmacy Services (LDI), from investment firms Nautic Partners, LLC and Oak HC/FT Partners LLC, and management. The transaction is expected to close in 30–60 days.

Diplomat will discuss its acquisition on a conference call at 5 p.m. ET Wednesday, Nov. 15. Listen to a live broadcast by calling 833.286.5805 (647.689.4450 for international callers) and using participant code 1788088. A recording of the conference call will be available for approximately 90 days on the investor relations section of Diplomat's website at ir.diplomat.is.

LDI Integrated Pharmacy Services is a full-service pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) based in St. Louis, Missouri. LDI's service offering includes URAC–accredited mail-order and specialty pharmacies, a national network of retail pharmacies, and comprehensive clinical programs.

Diplomat announced its first PBM acquisition of National Pharmaceutical Services (NPS) on Nov. 6. The acquisition of NPS gives Diplomat a proprietary claims-processing system, as well as PBM capabilities. The acquisition of LDI positions Diplomat to take a strategic leap forward, becoming a highly differentiated specialty company and giving health care payors access to a robust specialty platform to manage this high-cost, fast-growing component of pharmacy benefits.

"Bringing on LDI is an even bigger step as Diplomat evolves from a specialty pharmacy provider to a broader health care company," said Phil Hagerman, CEO and chairman of Diplomat.
