The company's operating cash flows have also shown a marked improvement over the same quarter last year. It looks forward to sustain this momentum for the rest of the year, he added.

In the first quarter of FY20, the company's India sales grew by 12.1 per cent year-on-year, recording a sales of Rs 1,222.2 crore as compared to Rs 1,090.6 crore in the year ago period, Alkem Laboratories said.
