At a consolidated level, YoY revenues grew 23% backed by robust growth in both Biosimilars (29%) and Generics (19%). Core EBITDA grew 25% and margin improved to 31% compared to 30% in Q1FY22. and Net Profit grew 71% to Rs. 144 Crore. Our financial performance this quarter includes the impact of annual increments in personnel costs as well as increased input and freight costs, pursuant to pandemic and geopolitical disruptions of global supply chains. R&D investments increased significantly by Rs. 87 Crore this quarter reflecting pipeline progression to deliver future growth. All our three businesses are poised for the next phase of strong and sustainable growth which has been challenged during the two years of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
