Indian biopharmaceutical company Biocon recently announced the sale of a 9.96% stake in its subsidiary, contract research firm Syngene International, through open market transactions. The information was disclosed in a recent filing with the stock exchange.

The sale brings Biocon's total promoter stake in Syngene to 54.6%, according to the exchange filing.

However, the pharma company did not disclose the price at which the stake was sold.
