Outlook and Valuation:

The company is aggressively investing in R&D and expansion, especially to build a strong US foothold. This includes a foray into niche areas like oncology, injectables, derma, etc. We believe the benefits from increased R&D and capex could materialize for the company by FY20. Immediate cash-burn is likely to weigh on the operational margins and return ratios in the near term, however, consistent launches in domestic and generic markets with FTF opportunities are expected to provide above market growth for the company going ahead. The company is currently trading at a P/E of ~24x FY17 EPS of INR 21.4.
