I am no Pharma investing expert neither have any knowledge about Pharma sector as whole, hence requesting inputs from members. their thoughts on why it is sustain these levels.

Since June 2020 it has given 1108% returns. If we compare since last year, still it has strongest returns of +135% compared to peers like Sun pharma(+27%), Vivimed labs(-56%) and Kopran(+20%). Quarterly growth on YoY basis does not look so enthusiastic:

For Fy22Q4 YoY growth numbers, can you please explain if and how this line item resulted in bad bottomline growth? and what are the implications of it?

Company update:
Convergent funds have made an open offer to buy 43% stake in the company on Feb 21, 2022:

The offer is at Rs.235, but the current stock price is Rs. 291, what will happen in this case?

Appreciate insights from industry experts and the members who are tracking this company on my above question. Thank you.

Nothing will happen. This is a mandatory open offer which was triggered due to promoter change.

There’s not much to say about jagsonpals history. There’s been no growth but it appears they have some good brands in gynaecology and ortho.
I am sure convergent has big plans but Investing here right now is just a bet on the new Jockey. No doubt the new Jockey has quite a reputation but what to expect going forward is a bit of mystery at this stage. I would wait for more details. Without details you don’t know if current valuations are attractive or not

Does this mean the shares will be bought at predefined price of 235rs? But as its public offer, who will sell for lower price than current market price? Or they will need to readjust buying price at current market price?

You are assuming that some action needs to be taken in this open offer. lets take a simple example.Say i takeover jagsonpal where you are a minority shareholder. As the acquirer i am required to make an open offer so that you can tender your shares if you so wish to but Its not mandatory for you to tender your shares. In my case I don’t care what you do with your shares because the open offer was just something I was required to do by law. Needless to say there’s a lot more to it that I don’t entirely understand. This was just a simple example for you to get the gist of it.Read this document If you want to know more about open offer types, setting of price, etc

Hi, Thanks I got it now.

Interesting things have happened in the company post acquisition by Infinity holdings. Manish Gupta ex Sequent has joined the company as Md, Field force which at the time of acquisition was around 600 have increased to 900.

Company shared good presentation after Q1 results. Clearly the focus is on Dydrogesterone which is the fastest growing segment in Gynae. The market has opened up after patent expiry of Abbott and now its a 700cr market growing at 40% cagr !! Mankind was the first one to launch it in 2019…


Eris concall had fairly detailed discussion on the market.




Jagsonpal has an arrangement for supply of the formulation from a related entity
