Ranbaxy: Strong global performance

Apr 22, 2004

Pharma major, Ranbaxy, announced its 1QFY05 results today. On the consolidated basis, the company has registered a bottomline growth of 10% on the back of an 18% topline growth. Ranbaxy has also recommended a final dividend of Rs 12 to the shareholders (120% on the face value of Rs 10 per share). Including this dividend, the total dividend for FY04 thus comes to Rs 15. However, the company's standalone performance is a matter of concern where the sales fell by 19% while the net profits have nearly halved (down by 47%).
