Dilip Shanghvi, Managing Director of the Company said, "Our performance for the quarter and first half FY16 has been impacted by lower sales growth, volatile currency movements and supply constraints. Nonetheless, we continue to invest significantly in enhancing our specialty and complex generics pipeline. Integration of Ranbaxy is

progressing well and while some of the costs have been incurred, the benefits will be visible going forward. We also continue to evaluate opportunities to expand our global foot print."

India Business – Market Leadership

Sale of branded formulations in India for Q2FY16 was Rs. 1,819 crores, up 1% from the corresponding quarter last year and accounting for 26% of total sales. Sales growth was adversely impacted due to conscious efforts to control overall inventory with the trade. In addition, sales in the acute segment were lower due to withdrawal of bonus offers and a relatively soft season for the acute segment. For the first half, sales were at Rs.3,602 crores, higher by 6% over same period last year. Despite a muted growth in first line sales, growth in the second line sales for the quarter and the first half is 10% over corresponding periods of last year. Sun Pharma is ranked No. 1 and holds approximately 8.9% market share in the Rs. 93,000 crore pharmaceutical markets as per Sept-2015 AIOCD-AWACS report.

As per latest SMSRC report, Sun Pharma is ranked no. 1 based on share of prescriptions with 13 classes of doctors: psychiatrists, neurologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, orthopedicians, nephrologists, gastroenterologists, diabetologists, urologists, dermatologists, oncologists, chest physicians and consultant physicians. 7 products for quarter and 14 products for the first half were launched in the Indian market.

US Formulations

Sales in the US were US$ 510 million for the quarter, down by 28% over Q2 last year and accounted for 48% of total sales. For the first half, sales were US$ 998 million recording a decline of 18%. Sales for the quarter were impacted primarily due to competitive pressure on some products and temporary supply constraints arising from remediation efforts at the Halol facility. The Company had benefitted significantly in Q2FY15 from the 180-day exclusivity on Valsartan tablets in the US resulting in a higher base.

Taro recently posted Q2 FY16 sales of US$ 212 million. For the first half, sales were US$ 427 million, up by 12% over first half last year. Taro's net profit for Q2 was US$ 133 million. Net profit for H1FY16 was at US$ 237 million, up by 25% over first half last year.

Emerging Markets

Our sales in emerging markets were at US$ 140 million for Q2, down by 16% from the corresponding quarter last year and accounted for 13% of total sales. For the first half, sales were US$ 273 million, down by 16% over first half last year. The decline is the result of volatile currency movements in certain emerging markets and a strategic decision of not participating in low margin businesses.

Rest of World Markets

Formulation sales in Rest of World (ROW) markets excluding US and Emerging Markets were US$ 76 million in Q2 FY16, down 30% from the corresponding quarter last year. For the first half, sales were US$ 167 million, down by 19% over first half last year. A conscious effort at reducing the participation in non-remunerative businesses has contributed to de-growth in the business. ROW markets accounted for approximately 7% of revenues for Q2 FY16.

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API): Strategic strength

The API business is of strategic importance to us due to benefits from vertical integration. We increased the API supply for captive consumption significantly for key products. As a result, for Q2FY16, external sales of API were at Rs. 315 crores, up by 13% over Q2 last year. For the first half, API sales were up by 21% to Rs. 586 crores.

On 31-August-2015, we closed the acquisition of GSK's Opiates business in Australia.
