Private equity group True North continues to back the Biocon group and is picking up a minority stake in Biocon Biologics in a deal that values the subsidiary at $3bn. Separately, another subsidiary, Biocon Biosphere, has also been set up as part of efforts to unlock the full potential of the business.
Glenmark expects its first US manufacturing site to go commercial next year, accelerating growth in that market, while it sets right certain compliance blips back home. The Indian firm is also on course to divest certain non-core assets but notes that bringing in a minority partner for its API unit is not a priority.
