Commenting on the results, Mr. Nilesh Gupta, Managing Director, Lupin Limited said, “Our numbers are muted this quarter, but we expect a strong bounce back Q2 onwards. Our U.S. sales took a significant dip as we took several strategic decisions to pave the way for building a sustainable and profitable business. During the quarter we pared down inventories and we took shelf stock adjustments on select products. While we continue to see price erosion in our US business and inflation in input materials, our India business continues to do well growing ahead of the market. All other geographies continue to perform well, and we have now implemented several optimization measures including addressing our workforce in operations and supporting functions to improve our cost position and ensure competitiveness. While the benefits of this optimization will start accruing Q2 onwards, we are now focused on getting back on the growth path driven by growth in key markets like India and multiple important complex generic launches in the US and other developed markets. On the compliance front, we have now satisfactorily addressed both Goa and Somerset, and continue our efforts to be best in class in quality and compliance across our network.”
