Q2 revenues grew 4.9% YoY to Rs 2953 crore with 17.2% YoY growth in domestic sales to Rs 1051 crore due to additional contribution from Fabiflu (favipiravir) being partly offset by 11.3% decline in US to Rs 752 crore.

Delta vis-à-vis EBITDA was due to lower other income and higher tax rate. Exceptional items in Q2FY21 were Rs 3.14 crore on gain arising from sale of Vwash brand to HUL.
