Denis Chem Lab Ltd Management Discussions.

a. Industry Structure and Developments:

The Indian Pharmaceutical Industry is 3rd Largest in volume and 13th Largest in terms of value in the world. The Indian Pharma Industry is expected to grow 15 % PA between 2015 to 2020 and the Indian market is poised to become one of the largest in the world. Branded Generics are expected to continue their dominance in the Indian Market.

b. Opportunities and Threats:

Our Competitive Strengths:-Diverse Product Portfolio -Wide sales, marketing and distribution network -Wide range of fill volumes -Experienced management team and well qualified senior executives -Adoption of superior technology for manufacturing sterile injectables -Our contract manufacturing and institutional sales business stabilizes our revenue stream -Targeting new domestic and export markets -Wide range of Sterile Injectable Products. The recent growth of Pan India hospital chains presents a significant opportunity for us to cater to their infusion requirements via our ‘Aquapulse brand.

The prices of our pharmaceutical products are or may be restricted by the price controls imposed by government and healthcare providers in several countries including India. In India, prices of certain pharmaceutical products are determined by the Drug Prices Control Order ("DPCO"), promulgated by the Indian government and administered by the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority ("NPPA"). If the price of one or more products are administered or determined by the DPCO/NPPA, it may have a material adverse impact on our profitability in case we are not able to control costs.

Enhanced regulations relating to Pollution Control, Drug Manufacturing etc. may place additional cost burden on the company.

c. Segment wise Performance:

The Company is operating in single segment. Hence, there is no need of reporting segment wise performance.

d. Recent Trend and Future Outlook:

India is now among the top 5 pharmaceutical emerging markets. There will be new drug launches, new drug filings and Phase II clinic trials throughout the year. On back of increasing sales of generic medicines, continued growth in chronic therapies and a greater penetration in rural markets, the domestic pharmaceutical market is expected to grow at 10-12% in 2017.

We expect to grow at market rates in the near future. The various cost cutting measures will also lead to expansion in operation margins. We also have had success in penetrating high end customers such as Pan National hospital chains. Expansion in the higher end of the value chain will lead to expansion in margins also. We have also begun the process of expanding and consolidation of our product portfolio to optimize our throughput. We expect all of these to have an impact in H1 of FY 2020.

e. Risks and Concerns:

We operate in a competitive sector. Our institutional customer base includes government, semi-government, hospitals & nursing homes, aided agencies and the defence sector which forms a part of our Companys income. Our Company procures orders from these institutions by tender process. We may face competition during this tender process. Enhanced regulations also may add to the compliance cost of the company.

f. Internal Control Systems and their Adequacy:

The Company has adequate systems of Internal Controls commensurate with its size and operations to ensure orderly and efficient conduct of business. These controls ensure safeguarding of assets, reduction and detection of fraud and error, adequacy and completeness of the accounting records and timely preparation of reliable financial information.
