The company had posted a net profit of Rs 1,587.12 crore for the same period of the previous fiscal. Net profit was adversely impacted by professional charges, harmonisation of policies of erstwhile Ranbaxy with the company, Sun Pharma said in a statement.
"The impact of these items appearing above EBITDA was approximately 10 percent of net sales and on items appearing below EBITDA was around 7 percent of net sales," it added.
Net sales of the company stood at Rs 6,144.90 crore for the fourth quarter, while the same was Rs 4,043.57 crore in the previous year, it said. For the year ended March 31, the company posted a net profit of Rs 4,540.60 crore, while the same stood at Rs 3,141.47 crore in the previous year.
Net sales of the company stood at Rs 27,286.50 crore for the entire fiscal. The same stood at Rs 16,004.39 crore in 2013-14. The financials for fourth quarter of 2014-15 and full year include the impact of the merger of Ranbaxy into Sun Pharma, and hence are not strictly comparable with the same period last year, the company said.
Almost a year after announcing a USD 4 billion deal, Sun Pharma in March this year completed the merger of Ranbaxy with itself. In April 2014, Sun Pharma had announced the acquisition of troubled rival Ranbaxy in an all-stock transaction worth USD 4 billion that includes USD 800 million debt.
