Company background

Lupin is a major generic drugmaker that conducts business in more than 100 countries. Among India's five biggest pharmaceuticals, it has about 10 production bases in India and exports generic drugs to other countries.

It was founded in 1968 by Desh Bandhu Gupta, a researcher at a science university. Since the early 2000s, it has been actively buying companies in South Africa, Mexico, even Japan.

It got a head start on its Indian competitors by building a supply network in Japan. It did so in 2007 by acquiring Kyowa Pharmaceutical Industry, an Osaka-based medium-size generic drugmaker. In 2014, it set up a venture with Yoshindo, a generic drug company based in Japan's Toyama Prefecture, to jointly develop generic biomedicines.

Zyma Laboratories, an affiliate company run by Desh Bandhu Gupta and other executives, is Lupin's top shareholder; the founding family still owns some shares in Lupin.
