Our organic business outpaced the market, whereas our inorganic portfolio added to the upsides with better-than-anticipated momentum. Our inorganic strategy is built around growing the India business and increasing share in the chronic segment. During the quarter we acquired Razel, a leading brand for lipid-lowering. This further strengthens our chronic presence, as we enter the 'Statins' category - the largest segment in cardiology. Our strong prescriber base and existing chronic teams will help in further growing the brand and drive operating leverage".

We are equally cautious about the inflationary environment and continue to build on productivity and cost optimization initiatives to enable us to maintain our operating margins." added Chopra.
