India revenue was Rs 1,257 crore, up 22% year-on-year. The company said that strong growth was driven by a strong performance from new chronic therapy products and the integration of Curatio. Revenue in Brazil rose 27% year-on-year to Rs 318 crore, driven by strong underlying market growth, new product launches and growth in the generics segment. Meanwhile, US revenue growth fell 1% year-on-year to Rs 280 crore, impacted by lower prices of the underlying product mix and lack of new products pending facility inspections.
