Founded in 1957, the privately-owned LOBA provides specialty APIs, organic intermediates, biochemical diagnostics, and customs synthesis. With facilities conforming to top Euro cGMP and USFDA specifications, LOBA counts some of the world's largest pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies as its business partners. The company's product range covers 500 organic compounds available from kilo-to-small ton quantities.

LOBA is a profit-making company, with current annual revenue at nearly 15 million dollars.

LOBA's acquisition, if successful, will fast forward Shilpa Medicare's vision of becoming India's leading manufacturer in the high growth oncology and CRAMS sectors, said Vishnukant Bhutada, Managing Director, Shilpa Medicare.
