"Our first-quarter performance in key markets like India and Europe was impressive on account of new product launch and partnership deals. However, the overall performance was impacted due to moderate performance in the US and subdued performance in LATAM (Latin America)," Glenmark Chairman and MD Glenn Saldanha said.
The company has a strong innovation pipeline of six assets in various stages of development in the areas of immunology, oncology and pain management, he added.
"We will continue to steadily invest in the new innovation business with an objective of accelerating the pipeline towards commercialization," Saldanha said.
