The Board of Jubilant Life Sciences Limited, an integrated global pharmaceutical and life sciences company met today to approve financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Commenting on the Company’s performance, Mr. Shyam S Bhartia, Chairman and Mr. Hari S Bhartia, Co-Chairman & Managing Director, Jubilant Life Sciences said, “We have started FY18 on a steady note, with our Pharma segment recording its highest ever revenues during the quarter despite margin contraction in the US generics business. This performance has been led by our injectable business of niche Specialty Pharma which has shown double-digit growth in the last few quarters. Our Life Science Ingredients segment delivered improved results on account of better demand and strong price environment. We continue to focus on operating cash generation to reduce our debt levels and strengthen the balance sheet.”
