On 16 January 2018, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries announced that its wholly owned subsidiaries have reached an agreement with Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Allergan plc to resolve the patent litigation regarding submission of an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for a generic version of Linzess (Linaclotide capsules) in the US. Pursuant to the terms of the settlement, Ironwood Pharmaceuticals and Allergan will grant, the wholly owned subsidiaries of Sun Pharma, a license to market a generic version of Linzess in the United States beginning 01 February 2031 (subject to USFDA approval) or earlier under certain circumstances. During the FY2019, Sun Pharma has received USFDA approval for its New Drug Application (NDA) of XELPROSTM (latanoprost ophthalmic emulsion 0.005%) used for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. XELPROSTM is the first and only form of latanoprost that is not formulated with benzalkonium chloride (BAK), a commonly used preservative in topical ocular preparations. XELPROSTM was launched in the US in January 2019. The company has launched ILUMYATM (tildrakizumab-asmn) 100 mg/mL in the US for treating moderate-to-severe psoriasis in October 2018. The company has received a good initial response for the product and we expect ramp-up in ILUMYATM sales in the US over the next few years. The company also commenced a direct-to-consumer advertising initiative for ILUMYATM in the US. Sun Pharma also received approval from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for ILUMYATM during the year. The product has already been commercialised in Australia. During the year 2018-19 the company received USFDA approvals for CEQUATM (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution 0.09%). CEQUATM increases tear production in patients with dry eyes. It is the first and only approved dry eye treatment to combine cyclosporine A with nanomicellar technology. CEQUATM will be commercialised in the US in FY20. In July 2018, Sun Pharma announced the USFDA approval for INFUGEMT (gemcitabine in 0.9% sodium chloride injection), for intravenous use in a ready-to-administer (RTA) bag. INFUGEMT uses a proprietary technology, which allows cytotoxic oncology products to be pre-mixed in a sterile environment and supplied to the prescribers in RTA infusion bags. These RTA bags will provide greater safety, by preventing problems of over-dosing or under-dosing and eliminating contamination risk. INFUGEMT was commercialised in the US in April 2019. During the fiscal 2020, Sun Pharma announced licensing agreements with a subsidiary of China Medical System Holdings Ltd. (CMS) for the development and commercialisation of two of its specialty products - Tildrakizumab (for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis) and Cyclosporine A 0.09% (CsA) eye drops (for dry eye disease) in Greater China. In July 2019, Sun Pharma announced the US launch of EZALLOR SPRINKLET (Rosuvastatin) capsules for the treatment of three types of elevated lipid disorders in people who have difficulty swallowing, a problem that is estimated to affect approximately 30-35% of long-term care residents. With the introduction of EZALLOR SPRINKLE, Sun Pharma continued its commitment of providing a portfolio of innovative formulation products to address the needs of a specific patient segment. In August 2019, Sun Pharma announced the filing of an application in Japan for manufacturing and marketing authorisation of ILUMYA (Tildrakizumab) for moderate-to-severe psoriasis with the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), Japan. Sun Pharma is committed to growing its global dermatology franchise, with ILUMYATM as its lead product. Further in August 2019, Sun Pharma entered into a global licensing agreement with the CSIR - Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad (CSIR-IICT), for patents related to certain compounds with potential therapeutic activity across multiple indications in Sun Pharma's specialty focus areas. Under the terms of the license agreement, Sun Pharma gets exclusive global license for the said patents and any other future patents covered in the agreement. Sun Pharma paid CSIR-IICT an upfront payment and will also pay for potential development, regulatory and sales milestone payments totalling up to Rs 2.40 Billion, plus royalties on net sales from commercialisation of the products developed using these patents. In August 2019, Sun Pharma granted an exclusive license to a subsidiary of China Medical System Holdings Ltd. (CMS) to develop and commercialise seven generic products in Mainland China. Till date, Sun Pharma and the CMS collaboration covers a total of eight generic products, with an addressable market size of about USD 1 Billion (as per IQVIA data) in Mainland China. This collaboration gives Sun Pharma an entry into the Chinese generic pharmaceutical market. In November 2019, Sun Pharma entered into a licensing agreement with AstraZeneca UK Ltd. (AstraZeneca) to introduce certain novel ready to use (RTU) infusion oncology products in China. In January 2020, Sun Pharma entered into exclusive licensing and supply agreements with Rockwell Medical Inc. (Rockwell), to commercialise Rockwell's Triferic, a proprietary iron replacement and haemoglobin maintenance drug, for treating anaemia in hemodialysis patients in India. In February 2020, Sun Pharma launched ABSORICA LDT (isotretinoin) capsules in the US for the management of severe recalcitrant nodular acne in patients 12 years of age and older. ABSORICA LD is the only isotretinoin formulation to feature Sun Pharma's micronisation technology, which utilises micronised particles to optimise absorption at a 20% lower dose. In March 2020, Sun Pharma committed to donate Hydroxychloroquine (HCQS), Azithromycin, and other related drugs and hand sanitisers to support India's COVID-19 response. It also donated HCQS in the US market. In March 2020, Sun Pharma launched a buyback offer in India to buy back 40 Million shares at a price up to Rs 425 per equity share, totalling to about Rs 17 billion. The Board of Directors of the Company at its meeting held on 31 July 2020, approved the Scheme of Amalgamation and Merger of Sun Pharma Global FZE (wholly owned subsidiary of the Company) with Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Limited, and their respective members and creditors which inter-alia, envisages merger of Sun Pharma Global FZE into the Company. The approval of the only secured creditor has been received during the quarter under review. The Company is convening separate meetings of shareholders and unsecured creditors of the Company on 16 March 2021 to seek the approval of the Scheme as directed by National Company Law Tribunal. The Scheme shall be effective post completion of all necessary formalities and procedures and accordingly, the above unaudited standalone financial results do not reflect the impact on account of the Scheme.

Sun Pharmaceuticals Industries Ltd Chairman Speech

Managing Directors Message

Dear Shareholders,

Health first - that is the underlying message that the COVID-19 pandemic has reasserted. The pandemic is a health as well as an economic crisis and hence the role of the pharmaceutical industry has become very critical. The pandemic has shaken the global economy, but has given the world an opportunity to correct decades of under investment in healthcare.

While the pharmaceutical industry has taken significant strides in developing cutting-edge products in immunology, biologics, gene and cell therapy, etc., it has, barring certain exceptions, neglected developing new innovative products in the anti-infective segments.

A growing incidence of chronic ailments like diabetes, cardiovascular, cancer etc., coupled with better pricing for products in these segments has resulted in very few new products being developed for infectious diseases. Over the past few decades, anti-infectives have become less attractive as potential areas for R&D due to relatively inferior pricing for such products compared to chronic products. Global innovator companies have reorganised their R&D pipelines to focus more on developing high-end chronic products. The global manufacturing infrastructure for anti-infectives has followed this trend, resulting in very few new capacities being set up for such products. The COVID-19 global pandemic may force both, the industry and governments, to revisit the importance of focusing on infectious disease research.

Over the past many years, governments across the world have given more importance to controlling healthcare costs to balance their overall budgets. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economic costs that it has extracted, may force governments to revisit this presumption and try to strike a balance between providing adequate healthcare and the ability to fund it.

While the pandemic obviously highlighted the importance of having an optimum healthcare infrastructure, it has also ignited a fresh debate on globalisation versus localisation. Supply chain network strategy is evolving as the pandemic has also highlighted the risks associated with vendor and/or location concentration. There is a higher sense of urgency now to achieve a pragmatic balance between outsourcing and self-sufficiency. Achieving higher resilience for supply chain is likely to prompt companies to evaluate diversification of their vendor base. However, in case of the pharmaceutical industry, new vendor identification and qualification will be a time-consuming process.

There is also a gradual realisation that the COVID-19 virus is here to stay and that all of us will have to learn to coexist with the virus till an effective treatment or vaccine becomes available. The industry is trying to develop a potential vaccine at a frantic pace while simultaneously putting in efforts to test existing drugs which can potentially aid COVID-19 treatment.

There will be far-reaching changes in the way in which organisations are likely to operate going forward.

Consumer behaviour and consumption patterns are also likely to change due to the global pandemic. Social distancing and maintaining individual hygiene (like using masks and hand sanitisers) have become imperative. Work-from-home (WFH) option has been exercised by most organisations for certain functions and there is a likelihood that it will continue for some more time till the viral infection comes under control. There is a possibility that WFH may become the new-normal for certain categories of corporate work force even after COVID-19 comes under control.

COVID-19 risk response

In these critical and uncertain times, Sun Pharma has responded quickly and efficiently to meet the challenges at hand. We promptly evolved a COVID-19 Risk Management Plan and formed multiple COVID-19 Risk Response Teams under the guidance of the senior management to tackle the challenges resulting from the global pandemic.

Sun Pharma ensured adequate supplies of medicines to its customers across the world despite the supply chain disruptions and the lockdown restrictions in various countries. In a situation where there were multiple disruptions in manufacturing because of various challenges in terms of availability of intermediates, availability of packaging material, etc., we have ensured uninterrupted supply of our products across markets. Sun Pharma has also supplied some of the medicines used for treating COVID-19 symptoms.

There is now a higher focus on automation, digitalisation as well as increased dependence on analytical tools for decision making. We are leveraging IT technology tools to ensure business continuity as well as to facilitate WFH for many functions in the organisation. Changes at manufacturing facilities have been made to ensure productivity as well adherence to all safety and hygiene protocols.

We are also evaluating the potential of some existing products which can be useful in COVID-19 treatment. These include Nafamostat Mesilate and the phytopharmaceutical, AQCH. Both these products are currently undergoing Phase-2 trials in India.

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we donated certain medicines useful in managing COVID-19 symptoms and hand sanitisers worth about 250 Million to support the Indian governments COVID-19 pandemic response.

Sun Pharma has also arranged personal protective equipment (PPE) kits, disinfectants, gloves etc. to help fight the pandemic.

FY20 highlights

We continued our growth trajectory in FY20 with our overall revenues growing by about 13% to 323 Billion.

Key growth drivers include India, our global specialty business, coupled with growth in the rest of the world and API business.

Operational performance

For FY20, India formulation sales were at 97 Billion, accounting for about 30% of overall revenues. Adjusted for one-offs of last year, the India business has recorded a Y-o-Y growth of 15%. Our India business has done well, and we have started witnessing an increase in our market share. Our leading presence in chronic segments coupled with our strong brand equity with doctors is helping us increase our market share in an intensely competitive market. We have also initiated an expansion of sales force for the India business in order to expand our geographical footprint in India and to ensure that all our brands get the attention they deserve.

Revenues in the US remained almost flat at 105 Billion and accounted for approximately 33% of our consolidated revenues for FY20. While we witnessed a ramp-up in sales of our specialty products, the generics business continued to face price erosion, driven by competitive intensity amongst manufacturers, buying consortium pressures and a higher pace of generic approvals from the USFDA. Our subsidiary, Taro, recorded a 4% decline in overall revenues to US$645 Million for the year.

We grew by 3% in emerging markets for the year. We are witnessing a reduction in tender revenues in our South Africa business. Excluding the impact of the tender sales, we have recorded a low double-digit growth year-on-year for our emerging market portfolio. The depreciation of some emerging market currencies has also reduced our reported growth despite good underlying growth in local currency.

Our sales in the rest of world (RoW) markets grew by 31% for the year, driven by increased sales in some key Western European markets and the full year consolidation of the Pola Pharma acquisition in Japan.

Research & Development (R&D)

R&D is imperative for any pharmaceutical Company's future. Our focus is to continue investing in R&D to develop differentiated generics and innovative specialty products. Our global generic business requires a constant flow of new products and hence R&D capabilities to develop such products and meet the individual requirements of each market are very important. At Sun Pharma, we have multiple R&D centres and a strong R&D team to cater to these requirements.

R&D is also absolutely vital for strengthening our global specialty pipeline. It is a key determinant of the future growth and profitability of the specialty initiative. We expect to continue to invest in specialty R&D in the coming years as we progress further in building the specialty business.

Our R&D investments for the year were approximately ^20 Billion. We continue to be disciplined in identifying future R&D projects for the US generics market and the focus is on developing differentiated generics. Investments for developing the long-term specialty pipeline are expected to continue.

Progress on specialty initiatives

As we gain traction in the specialty business, it is becoming an additional growth engine for us. Our global specialty revenues for FY20 were about US$430 Million and accounted for approximately 9% of our consolidated revenues.

We undertook multiple initiatives during the year as part of our efforts to build the specialty business. These include:

1. New specialty product launches in the US

2. Targeting new markets like Japan and China for our specialty products

3. Evaluating new indications for ILUMYA

4. Reiteration of ILUMYAS potential through longterm clinical data

5. Enhancing the specialty R&D pipeline by adding preclinical candidates

New specialty launches

During the year, we launched four specialty products in the US market viz., CEQUA, ABSORICA LD, EZALLOR SPRINKLE and DRIZALMA SPRINKLE.

a) CEQUA: In October 2019, Sun Pharma commercialised CEQUA (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution) 0.09% in the US. It is indicated for increasing tear production

in patients with keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye), an inflammatory disease that affects more than 16 Million people in the US. CEQUA is the first and only USFDA-approved cyclosporine treatment delivered with nanomicellar (NCELL™) technology, which helps to improve the bioavailability and physicochemical stability of cyclosporine, resulting in improved ocular tissue penetration. CEQUAs launch significantly enhances Sun Pharmas specialty ophthalmology portfolio in the US.

b) ABSORICA LD: In February 2020, Sun Pharma launched ABSORICA LD™ (isotretinoin) capsules in the US for the management of severe recalcitrant nodular acne in patients 12 years of age and older. ABSORICA LD is the only isotretinoin formulation to feature Sun Pharmas micronisation technology, which utilises micronised particles to optimise absorption at a 20% lower dose and can be taken with or without food.

c) EZALLOR SPRINKLE: In July 2019, Sun Pharma launched EZALLOR SPRINKLE™ (rosuvastatin) capsules in the US for the treatment of three types of elevated lipid disorders in people who have difficulty swallowing, a problem that is estimated to affect approximately 30-35% of long-term care patients.

d) DRIZALMA SPRINKLE: In October 2019, Sun Pharma launched DRIZALMA SPRINKLE™ (duloxetine delayed-release capsules) in the US for oral use. It is

a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) designed for the treatment of various neuro-psychiatric and pain disorders in patients who have difficulty swallowing. The availability of DRIZALMA SPRINKLE expands Sun Pharmas portfolio of innovative formulation products designed for individuals with swallowing difficulties, the risk of which increases with age and exposure to age-related diseases and conditions, including depression, anxiety, and pain disorders.

Targeting new markets for specialty products

During FY20, we took steps to target two important markets for our specialty products viz., Japan and Greater China. In June 2019, we announced licensing agreements with a subsidiary of China Medical System Holdings Ltd. (CMS) for the development and commercialisation of two of our specialty products - Tildrakizumab (for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis) and Cyclosporine A 0.09% (CsA) eye drops (for dry eye disease) for Greater China market. These licensing agreements will facilitate Sun Pharmas entry into the Greater China market, which is the second largest pharmaceutical market globally.

In August 2019, Sun Pharma announced the filing of an application in Japan for manufacturing and marketing authorisation of ILUMYA for moderate-to-severe psoriasis with the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), Japan. The PMDA has recently approved this application and launch preparations have been initiated. This launch in Japan will be a step forward for Sun Pharma in expanding the global franchise for ILUMYA.

We have also recently entered into an exclusive licensing and distribution agreement with Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC for commercialisation of ILUMYA™ in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Evaluating new indications for ILUMYA

In June 2019, we announced interim results from a Phase-2 study of ILUMYA in patients with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA). The interim analysis revealed that over 71% of patients treated with ILUMYA experienced a 20% improvement in joint and skin symptoms (ACR20 response), meeting the primary endpoint of the study.

The interim results showed that ILUMYA was well tolerated with a low rate of serious treatment-emergent adverse events. The Phase-2 study interim results also showed that across all patients receiving ILUMYA, 75.3% experienced a 20% improvement in symptoms of PsA (ACR20 response) at week 24 compared to 50.6% of patients on placebo.

The findings were similar in patients receiving 100 mg or 200 mg of ILUMYA on a quarterly dosing schedule. For some patients on 100 mg ILUMYA, results were seen as early as 8 weeks. Furthermore, an average of 47.1% of all patients receiving ILUMYA achieved an ACR50 response, with some results seen as early as 12 weeks, compared to 24.1% of patients on placebo.

Given the encouraging Phase-2 study interim results, Sun Pharma is in the process of initiating the Phase-3 trials for PsA. ILUMYA is already approved in the US for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy, and is being investigated for PsA, which affects up to 42% of people with plaque psoriasis.

Reiteration of ILUMYAS potential through long-term clinical data

In October 2019, Sun Pharma presented long-term follow-up data from ILUMYA Phase-3 reSURFACE 1 and resurface 2 trials. The data showed that the significant response rates seen in the initial 52 and 64 weeks, respectively, were maintained over four years for people with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis, with more than half the participants achieving at least 90% skin clearance [Psoriasis Area Sensitivity Index (PASI) 90] with no new safety concerns recorded.

Additional study analyses showed that the 75-100% skin clearance achieved with ILUMYA treatment over three years was sustained equally in people with and without metabolic syndrome, a common condition in people with psoriasis. This positive data reiterates the potential of ILUMYA and also indicates that the product provides a sustained response against moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis, thus giving long-term benefit to the patient.

Enhancing the specialty R&D pipeline

Developing/adding new innovative specialty products is imperative to ensure a strong R&D pipeline. We have taken multiple steps to strengthen the specialty pipeline.

In August 2019, Sun Pharma entered into a global licensing agreement with the CSIR Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad (CSIR-IICT), for patents related to certain compounds with potential therapeutic activity across multiple indications in Sun Pharmas specialty focus areas. Under the terms of the license agreement, Sun Pharma gets exclusive global license for the said patents and any other future patents covered in the agreement.

This collaboration for developing new drugs is part of Sun Pharmas broader strategy for enhancing its global specialty pipeline. This agreement will facilitate the addition of pre-clinical candidates to Sun Pharmas global specialty pipeline. A successful clinical development of these potential compounds may enable Sun Pharma to commercialise pharmaceutical products for various therapeutic indications over the long term.

We recently presented pre-clinical data for GL0034, a long-acting GLP-1R (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor) agonist at the American Diabetes Association Virtual 80th Scientific Sessions. GLP-1R agonists are used to treat patients with type 2 diabetes.

The data demonstrated significant outcomes on various diabetic parameters evaluated, viz. glucose reduction, decrease in HbA1c (an important marker for clinical efficacy), augmented insulin secretion, lowering of glucagon level and a marked and meaningful reduction in triglyceride levels. All these outcomes with GL0034 were found to be higher or significant to the currently marketed once a week GLP-1R agonists compared in the study. GL0034 also induced a larger body weight reduction, 1.9x and 3.8x times higher than the two different standard once a week GLP-1R agonist drugs compared in the study, with similar food consumption. We look forward to validating this data in human clinical trials with the Phase-1 trials likely to commence by Q3FY21.

In May 2020, Sun Pharma in-licensed SCD-044, a new chemical entity targeted as a potential oral treatment for atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and other auto-immune disorders. SCD-044 is entering Phase-2 clinical trials.

CGMP compliance

With global CGMP standards undergoing constant upgradation over the past many years, the pharmaceutical industry needs to be constantly on its toes with an unwavering focus on 24x7 compliance, which, in turn, raises compliance costs. Adherence to these quality standards and ensuring that each manufacturing facility remains compliant has become a key priority for pharmaceutical companies worldwide.

During the year, many of our facilities underwent successful audits by multiple regulatory agencies, including the USFDA. Our Halol facility was inspected by the USFDA in December 2019, which resulted in 8 deviations. The facility was subsequently classified as "Official Action Indicated (OAI)", which implies that all new approvals for the US market from this facility will be put on hold till it is cleared by the USFDA. We have already initiated the corrective actions required to get the facility back into compliance.

Focus on improving productivity

We are continuing with our efforts to reduce expenses to achieve an optimum cost structure relevant to todays business and market realities. These efforts are being implemented in multiple areas of the business with greater involvement of people in order to make the Company more efficient. Further enhancement of manufacturing efficiencies, optimising manufacturing footprint, rationalising generics R&D investments, reducing fixed costs and interest cost are some of the areas targeted for efficiency improvement.

Overall outlook

We will continue to focus on growing each of our businesses faster than the market in which we operate. R&D investments in developing a differentiated generic pipeline as well as in building our specialty pipeline will continue in the coming years.

Our strategy of developing the specialty business as an additional growth engine has started delivering, with a gradual ramp up in specialty revenues. We expect this momentum to continue over the next few years although the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns may throw up some uncertainties in the near-term. The specialty business is also helping us to move up the pharmaceutical value chain and bring in more innovation to our business. We have invested significant resources over the past few years in building this business and are now focusing on commercial execution to ensure that future cash flows justify these significant investments.

Generics will continue to be an important part of the overall healthcare management globally. Focus on healthcare may increase in the post-COVID period and hence generics are likely to retain their importance as an effective and economical health solution. Sun Pharmas strong positioning in the global generics industry and continued investments for the future will ensure that it remains a prominent player in this space.

Despite our proactive COVID risk response initiative, we do estimate some softening of sales in the near term due to the lockdowns and economic slowdown across various countries, although it is difficult to quantify the impact as of now. Our endeavour will be to ensure that we are the least impacted.

Key focus areas for us will be:

1. Employee protection and keeping workplace COVID-19 free

2. Digital engagement with doctors and patients

3. Supply chain protection, ensuring optimum utilisation of our factories and working closely with vendors to ensure continuity of supply

4. Enabling work from home for employees wherever and whenever it is necessary

5. Focus on cash collection and cash conservation in the business to ensure adequate liquidity

6. Continuing our focus on improving R&D productivity and throughput

7. Focus on cost optimisation and target higher efficiencies

8. Continue to invest in developing new technologies and innovative products

Our talented employees have done a remarkable job of ensuring business continuity despite the multiple disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. All our teams, including Supply Chain, HR, IT, Finance, Manufacturing have worked tirelessly to:

1. Maintain adequate supply of our products in various markets

2. Enabling WFH for a large number of employees in a very short time

3. Ensuring overall productivity without compromising on safety protocols

We are also grateful to our Board of Directors for their guidance and support in these uncertain times.

We are thankful for your support as a shareholder and we hope that you will continue to repose your confidence in us in future as well.

Warm regards,

Dilip Shanghvi
