Drug firm Jubilant Life Sciences on Wednesday reported a 10.13% decline in its consolidated net profit to 224.12 crore for the quarter ended September, mainly on account of higher taxes.

Total revenue from operations stood at 2,374.89 crore for the quarter under consideration. It was 2,265.93 crore for the same period a year ago, it added.

Tax expense of the company for the quarter was 89.55 crore as against 42.84 crore for the same period of the previous fiscal, the filing said.

With the strong demand recovery and new business sign-ups, "we expect strong performance in our Pharma, Life Science Ingredients (LSI) and Drug Discovery & Development Solutions (DDDS) businesses in the H2'FY21," they added.
