Kiran Majumdar-Shaw, Biocon's Chairperson and Managing Director, said, "The year ended March 2011 delivered strong multi-sectoral growth. Emerging markets have realised significant and sustained growth for our active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), whilst our branded formulations have scripted business success in India."

She said that licensing income from Pfizer and others has contributed materially to the company's profit generation in FY11. Further on, she mentioned that research serviced business supported by Syngene and Clinigene may witness a turnaround. Adding she said, "We are confident this will drive robust profitability next fiscal. To support our expanding business operations, we expect to increase out employee strength by around 1000 in the year ending March 2012."

Biocon's current headcount was at 5500 employees.

The company also announced that it will sell its stake in AxiCorp, the German drug distributor, to minority shareholders. On the occasion Mazumdar-Shaw said that was in the best of everyone's interest to exit.
