Quarter in Detail

Dr. Reddy’s reports revenues under three segments — Global Generics; Pharmaceutical Services & Active Ingredients (“PSAI”); and Proprietary Products and Others.

Global Generics revenues were INR 41.1 billion, up 17% year over year, in the fiscal first quarter. Growth was led by branded markets (India and emerging markets) and Europe.

The company launched six products in North America, including Sapropterin Dihydrochloride Powder, Albendazole Tablets, Ertapenem Injection and Icosapent Ethyl Capsules in the United States, and two products in Canada.

PSAI revenues were INR 7.5 billion, down 12% from the year-ago quarter.

Revenues in the Proprietary Products segment came in at INR 541 million, down 1% year over year.

Research and development expenses surged 14% year over year to $61 million. The company is undertaking the development of products pertaining to COVID-19-related drugs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $202 million, up 18% year over year due to incremental costs post integration of the acquired divisions from Wockhardt and increased marketing expenses.

As of Jun 30, cumulatively, 93 generic filings were pending approval from the FDA (90 abbreviated New Drug Applications [ANDAs] and three new drug applications). Of these 93 ANDAs, 47 are Para IVs and 24 have first-to-file status.

Our Take

In first-quarter fiscal 2022, Dr. Reddy’s top line registered year-over-year growth while the bottom line declined slightly on a year-over-year basis.

The company continues to face price erosion, especially in the North America generics market, which is adversely impacting sales.
