Glenmark recorded revenue growth of 19% yoy to Rs12.5bn, 4% ahead of our estimate while core sales (excl one-offs) were up 32% yoy to Rs12.2b. The overall growth in generic business was 45% yoy where in US (+43.5%) and Europe (+109%) contributed the most. Specialty business grew by 30.5% yoy, amongst geographies in specialty segment, India grew by 35.5%, RoW was positive 31.2%, Latin America clocked revenue growth of 26.9% and Europe was flat.

Glenamrk’s 75% of the revenue is dollar dominated; hence, the part of the growth is led by better realisation due to rupee depreciation. US sales grew by 43.5% yoy in rupee term whereas in dollar terms revenue grew by 19% yoy. We believe US business to remain buoyant for next two years backed by company’s strong OC portfolio and exclusivities (continuous gain in market share in Malrone and Cutivate). In the US the company has commercialized all its approved OCs over the past few quarters with a gradual ramp-up expected in coming quarters. Glenmark targets to file 15-20 ANDAs for FY13. The Company currently has 43 applications pending in various stages of the approval process with the US FDA.
Domestic business witnessed strong growth of 35.5% yoy and 23% qoq to Rs3.4bn. As per ORG-IMS MAT Sep’12 data, the company registered value growth of 29.6 % v/s the industry growth of 12.6%. We expect the growth momentum to continue with the restructuring activity. But, we expect the growth to slow down on higher base. RoW region recorded growth of 31.5% yoy in revenues led by better realisation and volume growth. We expect robust growth to continue though on a lower base.
