Matrix Laboratories: Bulk drugs focus

Nov 28, 2003

Matrix Laboratories recently announced its 2QFY04 results. On a YoY basis, the company reported a strong 136% growth in topline and 33% growth in bottomline. However, in view of the acquisitions in FY03, the two periods are not comparable. Hence for our analysis, we have done a QoQ comparison.
