Dilip Shanghvi, MD, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, said, “A challenging US generic pricing environment coupled with continued investments in building our global speciality business has impacted our Q2 performance. We expect our performance to gradually improve in the second half of this year. I would also like to welcome Vivek Chaand Sehgal who has joined us as an independent director as of today. Sehgal is a very successful entrepreneur and is the Chairman of Samvardhana Motherson Group and Motherson Sumi Systems. Under the leadership of Sehgal, Samvardhana Motherson Group has evolved into a $ 9 billion leading full system solutions provider to the global automotive industry, starting with an initial equity capital of $ 17 in 1977. I believe that Sun Pharma will benefit from his experience and guidance.”
