Commenting on the results, Sridhar Venkatesh, Managing Director, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited, said, "GSK's established pharma portfolio recorded strong double-digit growth, driven by our core legacy brands such as Ca1pol, Augmentin and Ceftum.
While our promoted brands grew, our vaccines business was impacted on account of the third wave of the pandemic. However, as this phase of the pandemic recedes and schools open up across the country, we are witnessing a steady uptake in vaccination. We also continue to invest in our brands and raise awareness amongst parents about more innovative vaccines from our portfolio.
During the quarter, we concluded the sale of the Vemgal plant in Karnataka. In the subsequent quarters, we will also aim to close the transfer of lodex and Ostocalcium brands to GlaxoSmithKline Asia Private Limited, as part of GSK plc's plans to create two world class companies in pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare."
