Syngene International Managing Director and CEO Jonathan Hunt said that the company posted strong results for the second quarter and first half of the ongoing financial year, particularly in its development and manufacturing services.

“In development services, we also added a new non-GMP capability centre to meet market demand for agile, cost-efficient, early phase development and scale-up services,” he said.

“In manufacturing, we made good progress on our long-term biologics partnership with Zoetis, as well as commissioning a state-of-the-art, digitally enabled quality control laboratory to support our growing biologics operations,” Hunt said.

The acquisition of a multi-modal facility from Stelis Biopharma Ltd, announced last quarter, is progressing, he added.

On the outlook, Hunt said, “Long-term sector fundamentals remain strong and we expect continued growth but at a lower level in the second half of the year… the short-term slowing in the US biotech segment is reflected in our latest outlook.”
