Here are the stocks to watch in trade today:

  • Sun Pharma: Orexo AB has started patent infringement litigation versus Sun Pharma. The lawsuit was filed in response to an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) filed by Sun Pharma with the U.S. FDA. In its ANDA, the company seeks to market and sell generic versions of Orexo's ZUBSOLV products, (buprenorphine and naloxone) sublingual tablets (CIII), in the US prior to expiration of the patents listed in U.S. FDA's Orange Book. The aforementioned drug is used for the treatment of opioid use disorder. (Bloomberg News)
  • ICICI Bank: RBI has exempted the Bank, from the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 with respect to shareholding above 30% in ICICI Lombard General Insurance and ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, for a period of three years Sept. 2023. The exemption during its operation may permit both ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company and/or ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company to consider strategic options such as mergers and acquisitions or capital raise which have the potential of reducing the Bank’s shareholding. There are no current plans for the Bank to divest to less than 50.0% shareholding in ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company. There would be no impact on the current distribution arrangements. Above exemption would facilitate compliance with rules if there is proposed acquisition of another general insurance business made by ICICI Lombard General Insurance, which is consummated would result in ICICI Bank’s shareholding in ICICI Lombard General Insurance reducing to less than 50%.
  • Indiabulls Housing Finance: Board approved the closure of QIP issue and approved the issue price at Rs 196.37 per share aggregating to Rs 682.87 crore.
