These segments are distinct and have independent operations by itself and don’t have any inter-segment linkages with the other segments. The Manufacturing operations, production process, Customer Profile etc for each of these segments are also separate. All these segments require different strategy for long term growth.

AIL has been investing in these segments for various expansion and debottlenecking activities, and all these segments are expected to grow. The demerger shall facilitate special attention to each of these segments.


The Manufacturing units of Pharmaceuticals are located at Tarapur, Dombivali in the State of Maharashtra and Vapi in the State of Gujarat, while the manufacturing units of Home & Personal Care Segment are located in the Union Teritorry of Silvassa and at Pithampur in the State of Madhya Pradesh.


Thus the Board expects that the proposed demerger would lead to more focused approach for the growth and success of these three segments and thus would also facilitate increase in shareholders’ value.
