Pfizer: Bottom up, top down!
Jun 28, 2005

MNC pharma major, Pfizer has announced mixed results for the second quarter and half year ending May 2005. The topline performance has disappointed for both the periods on account of the poor performance of the pharmaceutical business, which constitutes over 86% of the company’s revenues. Despite this, the benefits of the synergy with Pharmacia have led to an expansion in operating margins during both 2QFY06 and 1HFY06.
