In the international markets, the company's Brazil revenues grew fastest at 20 per cent to Rs 184 crore. The growth was aided by strong growth in the generic segment, performance of top brands and new launches.

The German and US businesses grew by 18 per cent and 13 per cent, with revenues at Rs 214 crore and Rs 299 crore, respectively. In the US markets, revenue was complemented by the performance of Dapsone launched in the previous quarter.
