Commenting on the results for Q4 and FY 2023-24, Bhushan Akshikar, Managing Director, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited, said, "For Q4, we delivered a strong double-digit growth and a robust performance across our General Medicines, Specialty and Vaccines portfolio. Our General Medicines portfolio recorded strong double-digit growth of 12% for the quarter, driven by key focus brands Augmentin, Ceftum and Calpol. Despite the NLEM impact in previous quarters, all promoted brands outpaced their respective categories in growth and gained market share.

Specialty portfolio led by Nucala and Trelegy has accelerated the momentum with highest patient recruitment in Q4.

For the vaccines business, over the last two quarters, we have seen a steady upswing in both adult and paediatric segments. This business delivered a Q4 growth of 35%. We continue to build on the momentum generated with the launch of Shingrix (Zoster Vaccine Recombinant, Adjuvanted) as we drive expansion of the Adult Immunisation category in India with innovative go-to-market (GTM) strategies.

We also remain committed to accelerating digital transformation to drive focused reach, coverage and seamless omni-channel experience for our customers."
