In the world of growing economy and globalization, major companies on both domestic and international markets struggle to achieve the optimum market share possible. Everyday business people from top to lower management work to achieve a common goal – being the best at what you do, and getting there as fast as possible. On June 11, 2009 Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited, India’s leading pharmaceutical company, announced that it would become a subsidiary of the Japanese drug-manufacturing firm Daiichi Sankyo Co. Ltd. Ranbaxy, established in the 1960s by the entrepreneur Bhai Mohan Singh, had expanded aggressively over the years and became a global firm with manufacturing operations in 11 countries and it sells drugs in 125 countries. One of the earliest to have been called an “Indian multinational company” by the media, Ranbaxy represented in good measure the successes and ambitions of the Indian pharmaceutical industry. The acquisition of this company by an overseas investor thus raises some concerns about the nature of the recent growth in corporate India and in the pharmaceutical industry in particular. As part of the agreement between the two companies, Daiichi Sankyo bought the entire promoters’ shareholdings of 34.8 per cent in Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited for a price of $3.4 billion to $4.6 billion. Daiichi Sankyo, which is the third largest pharmaceutical company in Japan, intended eventually to establish majority control over Ranbaxy by raising its stake to over 51 per cent. The deal set the stage for the creation of a new pharmaceutical giant, likely to be the 15th biggest in the world. The Ranbaxy-Daiichi Sankyo deal shows that, internationally, India’s pharmaceutical companies are valued highly. At the same time, this deal was also a commentary on some of the weaknesses of the Indian pharmaceutical industry, especially vis-a-vis the major international drug companies.
