Commenting on the results, Ashish Maheshwari, Chairman and Managing Director said, "In FY22, Balaxi has demonstrated solid execution and showcased the inherent strengths of its business model. We have achieved substantial scale-up in revenues, margin expansion and profit growth to deliver value in a tough operating environment marked by continuing impact of the global pandemic, geopolitical upheavals, inflationary trends and supply chain bottlenecks. While the Angola business continues to be a cash cow, we are now starting to see the results of our efforts in the LATAM markets. We will continue to pursue our strategy of targeting leadership in difficult-to-enter markets and have drawn out a roadmap to grow rapidly in other high-potential countries in Latin America over the next few years. We are also taking forward the manufacturing initiative that will allow us to create strong backward integration in our supply chain, completely reliant on outsourcing at present. Production from our planned facility will find immediate traction from established demand in existing markets. This EU GMP-compliant unit is also expected to open up new markets for our products, resulting in a shorter payback on the investment and a strong return on capital. We now look into the future with excitement and purpose, confident in our ability to drive continuing value for stakeholders by delivering on the strategic business plan."Financial consolidation of Angola operating entityEffective January 1st, 2022, Balaxi Global DMCC, Dubai, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Balaxi Pharmaceuticals Limited, which previously owned 49 per cent of the outstanding equity share capital of Balaxi Healthcare Angola has acquired the remaining 51 per cent for a cash consideration of USD 0.65 million (book value of the acquired entity).
