Orchid to exit joint venture in China

CHENNAI, INDIA: Orchid Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd is exiting its 50:50 manufacturing joint venture in China. The 50 per cent stake that Orchid holds in the Joint Venture company (NCPC-Orchid Pharmaceuticals) will be transferred to the partner company (NCPC) for a total cash consideration of $13.9 million.

“With the local Chinese players fast integrating, the operating conditions have grown quite competitive in China. Moreover, the products that the JV manufactures and markets in the local Chinese market have reached a mature stage resulting in flat growth prospects going forward. Hence, it was a prudent decision to relinquish our stake to the partner and exit the JV,” said K Raghavendra Rao, Chairman & Managing Director, Orchid Pharmaceuticals.
