Commenting on the results announcement, Dr. Satyanarayana Chava - CEO said, "The quarter's performance demonstrates our ability to execute our long term strategy, with enhanced revenue contribution from Formulations business contributing positively to both top line and margins. The LMIC tender business remains a major part of the FDF strategy along with developed markets of North America and Europe.

We have recorded robust growth across most of our divisions. Other API division showed a strong growth during the quarter on the back of increase in new product additions; with Oncology and Synthesis maintaining their growth momentum. With the impending shift in the treatment regimen in South Africa, we are witnessing a slowdown in sales in ARV API business for FY20.

On the regulatory side, we have received EIRs for our Units 1 & 3. Unit 4 successfully completed its maiden USFDA audit with Zero observations also received EIR. We remain committed to highest level of Compliance & Quality. With our EBITDA Margins at 20% I am very confident that our performance is back on high growth track."

Commenting on the results announcement, V V Ravi Kumar, ED & Chief Financial Officer said, "Our Total Revenues from Operations came in at INR 7,124 mn. With the improved revenue and better product mix our Gross Margins continue to improve. Our EBITDA margins also showed a significant improvement at 20% for Q2 FY20. The growth in EBITDA was led by higher Operating Leverage and also with softer key Raw Material prices from China. We are encouraged by the robust growth seen in FDF and Other API business resulting in higher utilization of our new Units - 2 & 4. With the focus solely being on growth and improvement in Operating Leverage, we remain confident of improving our return ratios and also achieving FCF positive status from FY21."
