Judge approves drugstore operator Brasil Pharma’s bankruptcy

Brasil Pharma owns three different drugstore chains: Big Ben, Farmais and Farmacia Sant’anna. Difficulties integrating the chains and a rift among shareholders are among the reasons for its bankruptcy, as well as a high level of debt.

SAO PAULO: Brazilian drugstore operator Brasil Pharma said on Tuesday a Sao Paulo court judge had approved the bankruptcy request it filed on June 6, when the company warned it could no longer obtain the resources to execute a restructuring plan.

According to a securities filing, the bankruptcy court has named Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Consultores as the judicial administrator of Brasil Pharma’s in-court restructuring and ordered the sale of all of its brands.
