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, 2019.

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 had a steady performance during the quarter. Pharmaceutical segment revenues have been higher by 12% YoY led by growth in CMO, Radiopharma and Allergy Therapy Products businesses. Pharma segment EBITDA was 3% lower YoY with higher profitability in CMO, Allergy and Generic businesses offset by lower API volumes and one-off expenses. Adjusted for the one-off expenses, Pharma EBITDA was higher YoY. 

In Life Science Ingredients segment, revenues have been 5% YoY lower mainly due to decline in input prices that affected selling prices in the Life Science Chemicals business. Profitability improved due to volume and value increase in Specialty Intermediates and Nutritional Product businesses.

Demand conditions for our businesses remain robust in key segments and we expect to deliver sustainable growth, going forward.”
