Q4FY20 revenues remained flat at Rs 455 crore. Export formulations de-grew 13.3% YoY to Rs 219 crore due to supply chain issues amid Covid-19. Domestic formulations de-grew 44.8% YoY to Rs 103 crore due to decline in Hepatitis-C and oncology segment on account of pricing pressure. API segment grew 38% YoY to Rs 96.4 crore. EBITDA margins declined 433 bps YoY to 28.2% mainly due to change in product mix and lower realisation in the domestic oncology portfolio. EBITDA de-grew 13.5% YoY to Rs 128.3 crore.
