Sequent Scientific or SSLs 1QFY21 revenue at Rs3,103mn was higher than our estimate by 1.6%. Revenue grew by 11.6% YoY and was led by growth in both API and formulation sales across geographies, except the Emerging Markets (EM). There was a conscious decision to slow down in EMs considering the risk of bad debts. However, the situation is now normalizing and we should see sales in EMs back on track. Incrementally, the company has also entered into a distribution agreement with global animal health giant Zoetis for distribution of their products in India. The agreement gives SSL right to a portfolio of 13 brands (19 SKUs) amounting to Rs400mn in annual sales....

Sequent Scientific or SSL's 4QFY20 revenue at Rs3,006mn was lower than our estimate by 19.9%. Revenue grew by 6.6% YoY and was led by growth in both API and formulation sales across geographies except Emerging Markets (EM). Gross margin improved 140bps QoQ, primarily led by an increase in API sales and strong performance in Turkey, which is a higher margin business. With API business expected to get stronger from here on and no headwinds in Turkey, we should see margin further build up from current levels. The larger margin driver in the near to medium term would be the first generic launch of injectable in Europe. For FY21, the company has refrained from giving a...

Sequent Scientific or SSL's 2QFY20 revenue at Rs2,842mn was in line with our estimate. Revenue grew by 14.5% YoY (cc) and was primarily led by growth in API sales. API sales grew by 30% YoY and now contribute 33% to total sales. The growth in API sales should sustain at least until the end of FY21 as the company expects to monetize its niche VMF (Veterinary master files) filings with low competitive intensity. About 5 of the 17 VMF filings of Sequent Formulations are niche, where SSL is the only filer. Formulation sales grew slower at 8% during the quarter as the company's largest geography Europe underperformed and declined 2.5% YoY. The decline in Europe is transient and was...

The company has given growth guidance of around 30% in FY20 in the API segment and mid-teen...
