FLINT, Mich. — Diplomat Pharmacy announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  All comparisons, unless otherwise noted, are to the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  Prior period financials have been recast to include certain direct expenses as part of cost of sales instead of selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”) for our specialty segment.  This change is a reclassification only and has no impact on overall results.
