Biocon Biologics Limited has sold its Indian branded formulations business to Eris Lifesciences Limited for an aggregate consideration of ₹1,242 Crore.

As part of this deal, Biocon Biologics Limited also signed a 10-year supply agreement with Eris Lifesciences Limited.

JSA assisted Biocon in navigating complex legal issues, including those under Indian pharmaceutical regulations, intellectual property laws and tax laws, each of which had material commercial implications for the transaction. The team helped the client balance various commercial considerations while structuring the deal and helped parties enter this long-term collaboration seamlessly.

The transaction team consisted of Probir Roy Chowdhury (Lead Partner), Yajas Setlur (Partner), Soumya Bhargava (Senior Associate), Moushami Nayak (Associate) and Nikhil George (Associate).
