Dr Reddy's Laboratories Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Member,

There has never been a year such as this.

We pray that there never will be any more in our lifetime as well as of our children and grandchildren.

As on May 14, 2021, the virus has infected over 160 million and has claimed the lives of 3.4 million people worldwide. India, the second worst infected country in the world, has witnessed over 25 million cases and more than 270,000 deaths.

Your company's core dictum is ‘Good Health Can't Wait'.

Never before in the history of Dr. Reddy's has this maxim been more important than now. In the context of this horrific pandemic, let us briefly share with you what your company has done to address the situation.

With the pandemic flaring for the first time in April 2020, the primary objective was to ensure health and safety of our employees and their families while continuing to supply medicines across the world. Some of the interventions that we quickly put in place were:

• A well-being and support plan that comprised tele-consulting, helplines, 24x7 access to clinical psychologists through an online platform and a home isolation program.

• Dedicated separate COVID-19 care facilities were launched for employees and dependents in three locations to provide pre-hospitalization care.

• For employees working on-site, stringent social distancing and safety measures were deployed in work locations, transport facilities and cafeterias. Other measures included multiple stages of disinfection, provision of personal protective equipment, automating actions that require manual contact. Moreover, we provided a daily hardship allowance.

• We contracted for additional insurance coverage for COVID-19 which covered hospitalization and home quarantine expenses. This was extended to our employees and their dependents in India. Employees were also provided additional COVID-19 leave.

At the same time, Dr. Reddy's acted quickly to bring various preventive and curative medicines to deal with COVID-19, including a vaccine. Let us start with our vaccine journey.

Sputnik V vaccine

• In September 2020, when the first phase of the pandemic was still raging in India, Dr. Reddy's signed up with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) — Russia's sovereign wealth fund — to cooperate on clinical trials and distribution of Sputnik V vaccine in India. Upon regulatory approval in India, RDIF committed to supply 100 million doses of the vaccine to Dr. Reddy's.

• Thereafter, we created a partnership with the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC) of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, for advisory support and to use some of BIRAC's clinical trial centers for clinical trials of Sputnik V vaccine.

• From December 2020, we commenced clinical trials of Sputnik V. Based on satisfactory data from Phase II trials, we received approval from the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) to conduct Phase III clinical trial on 1,500 subjects as part of a randomized, doubleblind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study in India.

• Simultaneously, Sputnik V showed strong efficacy, immunogenicity and safety results in Phase III clinical trials conducted on 19,866 people in Russia by RDIF. The efficacy of Sputnik V against COVID-19 was reported at 91.6%.

• In February 2021, we initiated the process with DCGI for Emergency Use Authorization of Sputnik V. This authorization was granted in April 2021.

• On May 1, 2021, the first consignment of imported doses of the Sputnik V vaccine landed in India. These received regulatory clearance from the Central Drugs Laboratory, Kasauli, on May 13, 2021. The soft launch of the vaccine commenced and the first dose of the vaccine was administered in Hyderabad on May 14, 2021.

• Further consignments of imported doses are expected over the coming period. Subsequently, supply of the Sputnik V vaccine will commence from Indian manufacturing partners. Your company is working closely with six manufacturing partners in India to fulfil regulatory requirements to ensure smooth and timely supply.

• Sputnik V makes Dr. Reddy's, the third enterprise in India that has been authorized to supply COVID-19 vaccines.

• We will work closely with stakeholders in the government and the private sector in India to ensure the widest possible reach of the Sputnik V vaccine as part of the national inoculation effort. This is a reaffirmation of our determination to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in India.

Sputnik V is not the only commitment of your company regarding COVID-19 treatments. In addition, we have been involved in three other medicines.

a) Remdesivir: We signed a licensing agreement with Gilead Sciences, Inc. that grants us the right to register, manufacture and sell Remdesivir, a potential treatment for COVID-19, in 127 countries including India. We launched Remdesivir under the brand name "Redyx™" in India in September 2020. With the surge of COVID-19 cases in the second wave, we ramped-up our capacities to increase availability of the medicine.

b) Avigan (Favipiravir): We entered into a licensing agreement with Fujifilm Toyama Chemical Co. Ltd. to develop, sell and distribute Avigan (Favipiravir) in all countries other than Japan, China and Russia. This has enabled us to launch Avigan 200 mg tablets in India and few other markets. We are also conducting

Phase III trials in North America for outpatient setting with mild to moderate symptoms.

c) 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG™): The 2-DG has been developed by Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) laboratories, in collaboration with Dr. Reddy's. The drug received emergency use approval as adjunct therapy for hospitalized moderate to severe COVID-19 patients.

We are also working on Molnupiravir, Baricitinib and other COVID-19 drugs for treatment ranging from mild to severe conditions.

To retain basic continuity across our annual letters, let us share the consolidated financial results of your company for FY2021.

• Consolidated revenues were Rs 189.7 billion, or a 9% growth over the previous year.

• Consolidated gross profit was Rs 103.1 billion, which was 10% greater vis-a-vis FY2020.

• Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased to Rs 47.4 billion, or an increase of 2% versus the previous year.

• Operating profit increased by 52% to Rs 24.3 billion.

• Profit before taxes (PBT) was Rs 26.4 billion, which was 46% higher than Rs 18 billion earned in the previous year.

• Profit after taxes (PAT) was Rs 17.2 billion, or 12% less than in FY2020.

• Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was Rs 103.65 in FY2021, versus Rs 117.40 in FY2020.

We wish to take this opportunity of thanking every employee of your company for putting in all the extra efforts in these trying times to make these results happen. They have done spectacular work.

Two of our key promises have been addressing unmet patient needs, and helping patients to manage disease better. Nothing has underscored the importance of these promises as the COVID-19 pandemic.

We do not know when the second wave will subside. Neither do we know whether there will be a third wave and of what intensity. But we do know that the only preventive worth the name is vaccination. And we are committed to seeing that your company plays a key role in the vaccinating program for our citizens.

Because Good Health Can't Wait.

Many of us have lost loved ones during this pandemic, especially in the second wave. Our sincerest condolences to them and our prayers that the families have the spirit and strength to overcome their tragedies.

Stay safe. Vaccinate as soon as you can. Wear masks. Maintain social distancing. This, too, shall pass. But it needs our combined efforts. And determination to succeed.

With our best regards and prayers,

K Satish Reddy
Chairman
G V Prasad
Co-Chairman and Managing Director

Revenues from Global Generics were up by 12% and stood at Rs 154.4 billion. There was growth across North America Generics, Emerging Markets and India, with strong growth in Europe.

Revenues from North America stood at Rs 70.5 billion, registering a year-on-year growth of 9%. This was largely on account of revenue contribution from new products launched, increase in volumes for some of our base products, and favorable foreign exchange movement, partly offset by high price erosions in some of our products.

As of March 31, 2021, there were 95 generic filings awaiting approval with the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), comprising 92 ANDAs and three NDAs filed under Section 505(b)(2). Of the 92 ANDAs, 47 are Para IV applications, and we believe that 23 of these have ‘First to File' status.
