Burroughs Wellcome: Results reflective of continuing domestic slowdown

Apr 26, 2000

Burroughs Wellcome has a relatively older product range vis–a-Glaxo. Quite a few products such as Septran, Actified, Banocide have actually shown a degrowth last year ranging from 6 to 10%. The trend seems to be continuing in the first quarter of the current year as evidenced by the 2.7% growth in the topline. Also, till the last year exports of Trimethoprim to the parent were substantial. These were stopped and a one time clearing of stocks contributed more than half of the post tax profits. In the absence of these incomes in the current year, post tax profits have dropped by 50%.
