  No company in the Indian corporate history has propelled itself so huge by fructifying the tool called M &A (Merger & Acquisition) like Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Limited did. Currently it is the 5th largest generic pharmaceutical company in the world and the No. 1 pharma company of India.          

We all must have heard both success and horror stories of M&A, as it ‘shakes off’ the internal and external eco-system of the company involved.  But the key lies in execution –thereby having realistic mutual expectations from the merger. It ultimately leads to incremental value for shareholders.
Value creation is the goal here which Sun Pharma has achieved every time since 2004 it bought Caraco Pharma for Rs. 170Cr, right up to its latest acquisition of Ranbaxy Laboratories for $4 billion in 2014.      

Every company in the world thinks about ways of growing their business, keeping in mind money constraint and pace with competition.

  M&A seems to be an effective tool for bringing significant trans-formative changes.  Sun Pharma’s organic growth has been so unprecedented that it founds itself commanding market cap of nearly Rs. 2 lakh crores.


Dilip Shanghvi, Founder and Managing Director of Sun Pharma despite being conservative has always chosen distressed assets to acquire and has successfully turned around each of them. Such aggressive nature has paid dividends which no Indian pharma company could even conceive of cashing.



For Sun Pharma, M&A has served as a positive extension to the company helping it achieve greater efficiency, and stronger competitive strength so that the collective value of the products and services from 16 acquisitions/mergers has taken the company to the next level of excellence.       HAPPY READING !!  :)

Investment- Engine Of Growth

Friday, August 26th, 2016 | Author: Shruti Daftry | Category: Basic Finance

  Investment refers to a mechanism used for the purpose of generating future income. In simple terms it means when money is put to use through various avenues to earn a return on it in future”.   In today’s time everybody is running in the rat race to earn a penny extra and for that extra effort put in by us, we always wish to increase our earning. Investment can be done on anything which yields monetary return. It includes the purchase of bonds, stocks or real estate property etc. For example surplus left after all our expenses from our income is kept as savings but as we take a step ahead by opening a savings bank account we confirm a return on the money which would otherwise have been left unrealized. It has always been said:   “Sooner you invest, longer you secure and bigger you earn”          

Why should you invest?

The basic objective of investing is to earn a return on the money employed. Now again, reason behind investment varies on a personal basis but to keep a clear view of any investment you should always look into the important factors to rationalize your investment.
  • The factors include:
  • 1.    Source of investment and complete knowledge about it.
  • 2.    Fulfilling certain future objectives
  • 3.    Safety of the money
  • 4.    To reap a good return we should always keep a check of interest rate which will decide the amount of return.

The next question is what interest rate is and it depends on what?

It is a rate at which an amount is charged to the borrower for the privilege of using the lender’s money. The interest rate depends on overall economic structure of the country. After deciding on the above mentioned factors we think of the time span for which money is not required and we want the value of our money lent for that period. We need to decide on the tenure of investment i.e., if it is for short term or long term; depending on which we decide the avenues of investment.  

In market we have two ready avenues through which we can invest :

  • 1.    Physical assets- Real estate, Gold-Silver Commodities etc.
  • 2.    Financial Assets-Fixed Deposits, Government Savings Scheme, Insurance Funds, Pension Funds, Shares, Bonds etc.
  Image result for investment  

Bottom Line:

After discussing so much on investment we now know the importance of putting the idle money at work and how it is going to benefit us in future. Now the important takeaway is not just the theory we understood about investment, but its viability and practicality in our lives. Before planning any investment we should always ask ourselves 3 questions as to why, how and where are we going to securely earn extra from our money or savings?

   Plan strategically and choose wisely.
