Q: If you could start by explaining or giving us the details of the deal, whether itís an all cash one, whether there is some debt transfer which is happening and your plans of acquiring some stake in the combined entity? These details if you can share with us?

A: Itís an all cash deal, itís a deal, which is valued at Rs 600 crore. Today, we will be getting Rs 300 crore and over the next three years we will get another Rs 300 crore. SRL is a strong player; as you know we have some very strong doctors, perhaps the best combination of doctors that we have, we also have combination radiology as well as the pathology business.
