Comments by Motilal Oswal
Maintaining buy rating Motilal Oswal stated, “Compared to a moderate 5% YoY earnings growth expected in FY22, we expect AJP to deliver 16% earnings CAGR over FY22-24, led by superior performance in the Branded Generics segment across Domestic Formulation, Asia, and Africa. We remain positive on AJP on the back of a) its strong brand franchise in DF/Asia/Africa, b) robust prospects for the US Generics segment, and c) superior profitability and return ratios. We have cut our FY23/FY24 earnings estimate by 4%/6% to factor in a muted outlook for the institutional Anti-Malarial business and temporary slowdown in ANDA filings in the US market.”
