The company attributed the decline in profits during the quarter predominantly to margin reduction of Oseltamivir in the US market. Formulations exports, including profit share, contributed Rs 257 crore to the total revenues, according to the company. The board of directors recommended an interim dividend of Rs 3.50 per equity share of Rs 2 each.
