For the second quarter ended 30th September, 2020, the company posted net profit at Rs. 214 crore for the second quarter ended 30th September, 2020 as against to a net loss of Rs. 182 crore in 30th September, 2019.

The company said that it has received approval for 4 ANDAs from the US FDA during the quarter. Cumulative ANDA filings with US FDA stood at 436 as of September 30, 2020, with the company having received 280 approvals.
