Revenue from global pharma business was 9.7 per cent higher at Rs 845 crores in Q1 FY 2018, primarily on account of strong performance in the product business largely due to ongoing integration of acquired products partly offset by global currency fluctuations and higher off-take during last quarter. Capex for expansion at Digwal and Lexington is progressing well and inquiries for integrated projects at our services business continue to surge with many new projects in various stages of discussion. During the quarter, 20 new customers (including 7 large orders) were added in our services business, company said.
