Company CEO comments on Biocon Q4FY22 results

Commenting on Biocon Q4FY22 results, Siddharth Mittal — CEO and Managing Director of Biocon, said: “The business saw robust sequential as well as YoY growth in Q4, on the back of contributions from new product launches in the U.S., particularly Everolimus, an uptick in our API business and a normalization of supply challenges that impacted us in the first half of the fiscal.

“However, our FY22 performance was muted, largely due to supply and operational challenges earlier in the year, as well as headwinds in the form of pricing pressures, and escalating costs of solvents, raw material and logistics.”

Recently, the company’s subsidiary Biocon Biologics signed a deal worth up to $3.3bn to acquire the biosimilars business of US-based pharma company Viatris.
