@Cipla_Limited1 Limited is in preliminary discussions and have made an indicative proposal of acquiring approximately a 51% stake in Cipla Medpro South Africa Limited for a total consideration of $220 Mn.
The acquisition will help Cipla to integrate the marketing arm in South Africa with its manufacturing, regulatory and research units.
Johannesburg listed Cipla Medpro is a distributor Cipla Ltd.’s products in South Africa and in some neighboring countries.
Cipla Limited currently does not hold any stake in Cipla Medpro. Medpro used to source 80% of its products from Cipla, and the companies agreed Medpro would use the brand name of Cipla for selling products in Africa.
Joining the likes of entrepreneurs to back and fuel startups, Infosys’ cofounders SD Shibulal, and Kris Gopalakrishnan are reuniting again to launch an incubator, Axilor Ventures that would invest up to $1 Mn in each early-stage startup they pick.
