SoapBox expands distribution of personal care line

BY Gina Acosta

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Cause-focused personal care company SoapBox Soaps has expanded distribution to several major drug stores and other retailers.

The company announced it has gained distribution in Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kroger, HyVee, Wakefern, Brookshire, HyVee, and additional distribution in Target in 2016. These accounts, along with existing ones, will expand SoapBox’s presence into more than 10,000 doors by year-end.

SoapBox gained much of its expanded distribution following a packaging revamp late last year. Formerly in colored, rectangular bottles, the product is now housed in round white cylinders with clean lines, bright colors, and prominent "Buy One, Give One" mission messaging.

The line now includes four varieties of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand soap, as well as a brand new bar soap line. Additionally, two new fragrances joined the personal wash family: Sea Minerals and Pomegranate. All of the products increased in size with the rebrand, adding value for consumers as well as retailers. SoapBox’s products include the 16 ounce hair products and 20 ounce body washes that retail for $5.99, and the 12 ounce liquid hand soaps and 8 ounce bar soaps that retail for $3.99.

In addition to the new look, all SoapBox products are now labeled with a “Hope Code.”  Consumers can take this unique code to the brand’s website and enter it to see which project and community their purchase will support. This code provides transparency to the aid given, and engages consumers to continue online messaging and dialogue with brand.

KKR to sell 15 million shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance

BY Michael Johnsen
DEERFIELD, Ill. – Walgreens Boots Alliance on Thursday announced that affiliates of KKR intend to offer for sale in an underwritten secondary offering 15 million shares of the company’s common stock pursuant to the shelf registration statement filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Feb. 17, 2016.
 
The selling stockholders also intend to grant the underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1.5 million shares of the company's common stock.
 
The company previously issued to the selling stockholders an aggregate of almost 52.5 million shares of common stock in connection with the company’s strategic combination with Alliance Boots completed in December 2014. The shares to be sold by the selling stockholders represent approximately 29% (or 31% if the underwriter exercises its option in full) of their aggregate shares owned prior to the offering, and, following the offering, the selling stockholders will own more than 37.4 million shares in the aggregate. 
 
Walgreens Boots Alliance is not selling any shares and will not receive any proceeds from the proposed offering. Dominic Murphy, member and head of U.K. and Ireland, head of health care industry team – Europe, KKR, will remain a member of the company’s board of directors after the completion of the proposed offering.
Citigroup will act as the sole underwriter for the offering and proposes to offer the shares of common stock from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the Nasdaq Stock Market, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at prevailing market prices, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices. 
 
The last reported sale price of the company’s common stock on May 5, 2016 was $81.46. The company filed an automatically effective shelf registration statement (including a prospectus) with the SEC for the offering.
