Ipca Laboratories has witnessed a consistent improvement in its profitability along with strong growth in its business. The key business segments of the company, viz. its international formulation business and the domestic formulation business are likely to do well over the next couple of years. Going forward, there is a healthy ramp-up expected in IPCA's international formulations revenues. Though small in size, branded formulations is one of the most profitable businesses for IPCA, with an EBITDA margin of around 28 per cent. The US market remains its key growth driver over the medium-to-long term. The company has a very small base and strong vertical integration capabilities that offer it a cost advantage. With regard to the domestic formulations business, the company has consistently outperformed the industry in the past, led by a rising share of chronic segments, product selection, an increase in the field force and brand building activity. These factors will be major triggers for the stock going forward. One can look at the scrip from a medium-term perspective.
