Walgreens Boots Alliance said it will reduce its stake in its pharmaceutical wholesaling joint venture in China with Guangzhou Pharmaceuticals Corp.

The Deerfield-based drug store chain plans to sell a 30 percent interest in Guangzhou Pharmaceuticals to Guangzhou Baiyunshan Pharmaceutical Holdings, Walgreens' partner in the venture. Following the sale, Guangzhou would own 80 percent of the venture, while Walgreens will own a 20 percent interest and will continue to account for its remaining stake as an equity method investment.

The sale is subject to regulatory review and approval.
