Dilip Shanghvi, MD, Sun Pharma said, “Our Q4 performance reflects the impact of the challenging generic pricing environment in the US. Despite this, we continue to invest our strong cash flows in enhancing our specialty pipeline. In Q4, we announced the acceptance of Tildrakizumab filing by EMA for European markets and for the US market in May 2017. We will be gradually filing Tildrakizumab in all key markets in the next few quarters. We recently had a pre-NDA meeting with the US FDA for Seciera and we are on track to file this NDA by Q3FY18. We continue to evaluate filing Seciera in other markets. During the quarter, the US FDA lifted the import alert on the Mohali facility while remediation efforts are on-going to bring back the Halol facility into full cGMP compliance.”
