Positives for the Company:

One of the leading diagnostics companies in India and also well positioned to leverage the expected growth in the Indian diagnostics industry.

As of March 31, 2018, Company’s operational network is spread across 173 cities in India.

The diagnostics market in India is highly fragmented and largely unorganized. We are the third largest diagnostics service provider in India, by revenue.

It is estimated that there will be a shift from the unorganized providers to organized providers in the diagnostics market due to increasing trend of patient’s reliance on organized diagnostic providers for quality services and unavailability of complex tests with standalone centers.
