Geojit’s research report on Strides Pharma Science
Strides Pharma Science (STAR) is an R&D focussed, vertically integrated pharmaceutical company with an experienced management team having presence across multiple therapeutic segments. Strides reported its Q4FY22 revenue at Rs.866cr (9% QoQ, -4.7% YoY), with the US business (38% of total revenue) clocking 17% QoQ growth. Unusual price erosion and volume drops in the US led to contraction in EBITDA (-73.4% YoY) to Rs.42cr with EDITDA margin contracting 430 bps QoQ. Stelis Biopharma revenues were reported at $17.7mn (from a zero base) in FY22, securing commercial sales value of $85mn starting FY24. We expect a revenue CAGR of 20% over FY22-FY24E on the portfolio expansion, healthy order book, better cash flows and focus on debt & cost reduction.
