When I founded Lupin over 48 years ago the goal was simple; to manufacture and deliverquality affordable medicines of the highest national and social priority. It has been thecore principle and guiding philosophy behind everything we have undertaken and achievedover now close to five decades. This is reflected in how Lupin has expanded over theyears the markets that we have chosen to focus on and in how we have nurtured and grownthem. It is also reflected in how Lupin has gone about investing in and growing ourresearch programs to build an impressive product pipeline and in how we have created aquality driven global manufacturing organization second to none in the pharmaceuticalindustry. FY 2016 saw us invest the highest ever in Research & Development to date.
Today it is clear to me that the unassuming choice that we made of being inclusive increating relevant products that people need is what has made Lupin the globalpharmaceutical powerhouse that it is. It has also been the key trigger driving Lupinyttsto be creative in working together to innovate execute and deliver efficacious productsto our communities. This differentiator has ensured Lupins continued progression andascendance as a global leader and a true innovator.
At Lupin success is not just about growth or performance it has always been aboutdoing the right thing no matter how challenging the environment; about backing our ideasand having the conviction to see them through. It is about being the transformationourselves. That is the only thing that ensures leadership in a changing world.
At Lupin leadership is a given and numbers are just milestones on a glorious path.
