Regulatory issues should reduce going ahead for Dr Reddy’s Laboratories (DRL). They got the warning letter for three of the plants, he said.
Last quarter was the worst quarter for the company. From here onwards things will start improving, they have already got positive response from United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA). DRL has a very strong pipeline in FY18 and FY19. All these things augur well for the company, he added.
Earnings for DRL not entirely dependent on regulatory issues, said Malik.
On Divis Laboratories, he said, Divis should resolve the import alert that they got seven months back. Divis likely to solve import alert issues, he added.
Earnings will start coming in from FY19 for Divis, FY18 will remain a weak year for them because half year has already been passed, he further mentioned.
