Japan's third-largest drug maker Daiichi Sankyo acquired a 64- percent stake in India's most internationally known pharmaceutical brand name - Ranbaxy - last June. The deal between an emerging innovator and an established generics drug maker surprised many but was seen as a transformational one with a goal to expand reach and enhance cost-efficiencies.
