Commenting on the results, Sridhar Venkatesh, Managing Director, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited said,
"GSK continues to demonstrate resilience in these times, as we focus our efforts on the safety of our employees while ensuring patients have access to our medicines. This has been reflected in our results for the quarter, wherein sales have grown double digit since Q1 FY21 bouncing back to prior year levels. Most of GSK's key brands have outpaced their respective categories by gaining market share and our cost reduction/efficiency initiatives have helped drive margin expansion.
We also continued our focus as an innovation-driven, science-led biopharmaceutical company with the recent launch of Fluarix Tetra - the world's first inactivated Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine during the quarter.
After considering all the strategic options available with the company for its manufacturing site at Vemgal following the global voluntary recall of Zinetac, the Company has decided to proceed with the sale of the site and has classified the assets as held for sale."
