3. Management Discussion &Analysis Report:

A. Overview of Indian pharmaceutical industry structure, development and important changes:

For years the Indian pharmaceutical industry has been a cornerstone of global healthcare, earning the moniker "pharmacy of the world." This dominance stems from its leadership in high-volume, low-cost generic drug manufacturing (up to 20% global market share) and fixed- dose combination (FDC) therapies. Fueled by a potent combination of innovation, demographic megatrends, and a strategic focus on lucrative segments like pain management (a $5 billion market in India), the industry is poised for sustained growth.

Beyond its undeniable global impact, the Indian pharmaceutical sector serves as a linchpin for the nations economic engine. It generates significant employment opportunities (over 8 million direct and indirect jobs) and fosters a vibrant innovation ecosystem. Recent years have witnessed pivotal developments and strategic shifts, shaping the industrys trajectory towards a future brimming with promise.

Addressing affordability, accessibility, and public health concerns in a nation as diverse as India presents a unique opportunity. Pharmaceutical companies like ours can become key players in national well-being while securing a strong foothold in both domestic and international markets. This past year has been marked by a dynamic interplay between the pharmaceutical and consumer wellness industries. Fueled by a growing focus on preventive healthcare and rising disposable incomes, this convergence presents a fascinating picture of innovation and opportunity.

The Indian Pharmaceutical Market witnessed a stellar 9.5% year-on-year growth in March 2024, driven by positive value growth across all major therapeutic categories (Pharmatrac).

The Organisation of Pharmaceutical Producers of India (OPPI) joined forces with EY to conduct a comprehensive study - "Reimagining Pharma and Healthcare for India@100 - Bharat Ke Liye" - envisioning the future of pharmaceuticals and healthcare in India by the centenary year of its independence (2047). The report emphasizes the importance of fostering a culture of innovation, fostering seamless integration with global markets, and ensuring equitable access to healthcare for all.

Unleashing Pharmas Research & Innovation Potential:

A paradigm shift is underway, with the industry transitioning towards value-driven research and development (R&D). A robust ecosystem that fosters collaborative partnerships among diverse stakeholders - pharmaceutical giants, agile startups, esteemed academic institutions, and cutting-edge research bodies - is crucial for success. Supportive government policies, world-class infrastructure, and innovative financing mechanisms are essential for propelling India into "Discovery 1.0" - a transformative phase marked by the development of next- generation therapeutics.

Biologics, a new generation of drugs derived from living organisms, are gaining traction. Recognizing this potential, the government is actively promoting biosimilar development through supportive policies. This focus on biosimilars is expected to propel Indias position as a key player in the global biologics market.

Embracing Digital Transformation:

The industry is undergoing a digital revolution. The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is transforming drug discovery and development processes, accelerating time-to-market for new medications. Additionally, advancements in big data analytics are optimizing supply chains and improving pharmacovigilance (drug safety monitoring).

Integration into the Global Pharma Supply Chain:

Manufacturing prowess and supply chain management efficiency are paramount for achieving global competitiveness. India is strategically positioned to capitalize on the "China+1" opportunity due to its inherent advantages and a conducive business environment.

The governments ambitious target of scaling the industry to a mammoth $200 billion by 2030 underscores its commitment to supporting industry growth through impactful initiatives like production-linked incentive schemes.

Key Trends and Growth Drivers in the Indian Context:

Rising disposable incomes, increasing health awareness among the populace, and the high burden of chronic diseases present a lucrative opportunity for industry players to develop disruptive, cost-effective solutions catering to the diverse healthcare needs of the Indian population.

Ensuring affordability and accessibility of medicines remains a key challenge. The governments initiatives like the Jan Aushadhi Scheme, which provides generic drugs at discounted prices, are making a positive impact. Industry collaboration with the government and healthcare providers is crucial to expand healthcare coverage and improve access to essential medicines in rural and remote areas.

The "Rise of the Wellness Warrior" trend reflects a growing consumer focus on proactive healthcare management, seeking solutions for stress mitigation, immunity boosters, and personalized approaches to well-being.

The "Power of Digital Health" highlights the transformative role of technology in revolutionizing access to information and empowering individuals with personalized wellness plans. Investors are taking keen notice, with a surge in funding for digital health startups, pa rticu la rly i n regions like Southeast Asia (Salaam Gateway report).

The rising incidence of chronic pain translates to higher demand for effective pain management solutions. Companies with deep expertise in this domain can play a significant role by developing innovative treatment options. Here at Jenburkt, with our extensive experience in pain management, we are actively innovating and launching new products across our Pharmaceutical and Wellness Divisions to tackle Indias silent pain epidemic.

B. Business performance, opportunities and outlook:

We would like to share the continued success and achievements of our Research & Development Centre at Sihor, that exemplifies our unwavering commitment to accelerating new product development and building a robust innovation pipeline across key therapeutic areas.

Our domestic business has delivered robust consistent results. We are happy to share that this year witnessed a historic achievement with Nervijen D3 tablets becoming the first brand in Jenburkts history to reach a revenue target exceeding expectation within its first year of launch. This success underscores the significant need addressed by Nervijen D3 and the trust placed in Jenburkt by healthcare professionals and patients. In addition, we expanded our therapeutic reach by venturing into specialized segments and introducing novel delivery formats with a focus on enhanced patient convenience, palatability and compliance which were well-accepted.

Our consumer wellness division, Jenburkt Wellness, with its flagship brand Zixa Strong Rapid Pain Relief also witnessed an exciting year. Originally a digital-only direct- to-consumer brand, this year we expanded into general trade with pilots across Mumbai, Pune, and Bengaluru. This expansion is planned to continue throughout the year 2024, increasing physical accessibility for consumers. We renewed and strengthened our association with Mumbai City FC, champions of the 2023-24 Indian Super League, as their Official Pain Relief and Recovery Partner. Zixa Strongs commitment to superior quality was validated by an official recommendation by the Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP), a community of over 12,000 registered physiotherapists pan-India.

Despite navigating regulatory hurdles, market disruptions (limited foreign exchange access in Africa, and unrest in Sri Lanka), and receivables challenges, our International Business division displayed resilience. These temporary obstacles became opportunities to strengthen partnerships and improve access to essential products. Our focus now shifts to product portfolio expansion in existing markets and entry into two new ones, solidifying our global reach and fostering growth.

The Indian pharmaceutical and wellness market is poised for explosive growth driven by several factors. A growing aging population demands geriatric care solutions, while rising cases of chronic diseases like diabetes fuel the need for effective treatments. Furthermore, increasing health insurance penetration, projected to reach 50% by 2030, empowers patients to seek more medical care. Indias advantage doesnt stop there - its lower medical costs and advanced technology are attracting medical tourists, with the industry expected to reach $9 billion by 2026. This confluence of trends paints a bright picture for the future of Indias healthcare landscape.

Addressing affordability, accessibility, and public health concerns in a nation as diverse as India presents a unique opportunity. Pharmaceutical companies like ours can become key players in national well-being while securing a strong foothold in both domestic and international markets. This past year has been marked by a dynamic interplay between the pharmaceutical and consumer wellness industries. Fueled by a growing focus on preventive healthcare and rising disposable incomes, this convergence presents a fascinating picture of innovation and opportunity. Jenburkt is committed to enhancing healthcare access and affordability in India. Their strategy involves a three-pronged approach: first, developing cost- effective treatments for diseases prevalent in the region. Second, they will partner with organizations like the Red Cross to raise awareness about preventative healthcare and healthy lifestyle choices. Finally, Jenburkt will collaborate with the Red Cross to improve rural healthcare outreach programs and experiment with telemedicine solutions, ensuring a wider reach for their initiatives.

C. Risks, concerns and threats

The Indian pharmaceutical industry is a global powerhouse, due to its robust generics manufacturing and exports. However, this position is not without its challenges.

India faces a balancing act in its pharmaceutical industry. The government enforces strict price controls on essential medicines, making them highly affordable for a large population. This is a major public health benefit, ensuring many can access life-saving treatments. However, a recent 2023 study by ASSOCHAM paints a concerning picture. The study reveals that R&D spending in the Indian pharmaceutical sector has stagnated at around 10-12% of revenue in recent years. This falls short of the global average of 15-20%. The worry is that limited profit margins due to price controls are discouraging companies from investing heavily in R&D. This could stifle innovation and hinder the development of new drugs in the long run. Essentially, Indias focus on affordability might be unintentionally coming at the cost of future medical advancements.

A significant th reat to the Indian pharmaceutica l industrys reputation is the prevalence of counterfeit drugs. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 35% of the worlds counterfeit drugs originate in India. This not only poses a serious health risk to patients but also tarnishes the image of legitimate Indian pharmaceutical companies. A 2020 study by FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) estimated that the Indian pharmaceutical industry loses a staggering USD 4.2 billion annually due to counterfeit drugs.

This not only impacts profitability but also discourages foreign investment in the sector.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry is heavily reliant on China for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), the essential raw materials used in drug production. Industry estimates suggest that around 80% of Indias API needs are currently fulfilled by Chinese suppliers. This dependence exposes Indian companies to potential price hikes and supply chain disruptions. Diversifying API sourcing beyond China is crucial to mitigate these risks.

Complying with stringent international regulatory standards is a major challenge for Indian pharmaceutical companies, particularly those aiming to export their products. According to a 2023 report by ICRA Limited, a credit rating agency, Indian companies have seen an upward trend in inspections and warning letters in recent years. While these may not have a material impact yet, they can lead to production halts, product recalls, and reputational damage if not addressed promptly.

The Indian government often regulates the cost of essential medicines to ensure affordability for all. However, this can negatively impact the profitability of pharmaceutical companies. These companies invest heavily in R&D and marketing new drugs, but price controls can make it difficult to recou p these costs. Striking a balance between ensuring affordability for patients and allowing companies to invest in innovation and growth is a constant challenge.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry relies on the import of key ingredients and raw materials. Global supply chain disruptions due to geopolitical tensions, pandemics, or natural disasters can hamper the manufacturing and availability of medicines in India. Companies may struggle to find alternative sources for essential materials leading to drug shortages and price hikes. This ultimately impacts patient access to critical medications.

While India has a robust R&D infrastructure, more funding is needed to drive innovation and create new drugs. A 2024 report by CAPSULE, a pharmaceutical industry publication, highlights the need for increased public and private sector investment in R&D. Creating new and effective medicines requires significant time, money, and expertise. Balancing the costs and benefits of R&D is a challenge, but continuous innovation is essential for the long-term growth of the industry.

In conclusion, the Indian pharmaceutical industry navigates a complex landscape. While government price controls ensure affordability, they can stifle innovation. Countering the menace of counterfeit drugs, reducing dependence on China for APIs, and navigating stringent global regulations are critical challenges. Additionally, maintaining a robust supply chain, fostering a culture of R&D, and striking a balance between affordability and profitability are all crucial for the industrys sustainable growth and continued role as a global leader in affordable medicines.

Legal Matters:

a. NPPA had served a show cause notice to the Company alleging that a Companys product was violating a NPPAs standing order. However, after a Personal Hearing and detailed submission, NPPA passed a written order stating that the Companys product did not violate the standing order. Subsequently, NPPA reviewed its own order, without having any power to review, issued a show cause notices and a demand notice to the Company. The Company subsequently filed a writ petition against the demand of NPPA, at the Honble High Court of Bombay. DPCO, 1995, explicitly debars NPPA to review its own order, the very reason cited by Honble High Court of Bombay, while settling the matter in favour of the Company quashing the show cause notices and demand notice in their judgment dated 8th August, 2013 and 26th September, 2013. The NPPA after over a year filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) (demanding f 16.45 crore) at the Honble Supreme Court. The Company has been legally advised, that based on the facts and merits of the case, the demand raised by NPPA is not likely to crystallize.

The matter is pending at Supreme Court after being admitted for further hearing.

b. The Drug Inspector, Tirupati, took a company product from a local chemist and sent for test at a government laboratory in Vijayawada which declared the samples as Not of standard quality.
