Motilal Oswal Report

Cadila Healthcare Ltd. received restricted emergency use approval from the Drug Controller General of India for the use of ‘Virafin’, Pegylated Interferon alpha-2b, in treating moderate Covid-19 infections.

Considering the drug’s potential in reducing the need for supplemental oxygen and its better efficacy against other viral infections, we expect sales of Rs 2.5–3 billion on an annualized basis.

Accordingly, we raise our earnings estimates by 7%/6% for FY22/FY23, factoring in -

  1. the Virafin opportunity and

  2. lower operating cost in the domestic formulation segment on account of the lockdown.
