“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,” Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Executive Chairperson, Biocon and Biocon Biologics.

“Initiation of global clinical trials for two monoclonal antibodies and advancement of our other pipeline assets led to a 120 per cent increase in our R&D investments this quarter. Whilst this impacts EBITDA in the near term, such investments will create a strong portfolio to secure our future growth. Our strategic alliance with Serum Institute Life Sciences for vaccines and the acquisition of Viatris’ global biosimilars business are on track for closure in the second half of this calendar year,” Dr Arun Chandavarkar, Managing Director, Biocon Biologics Ltd.
