Pharma major Dr Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd has entered into a definitive agreement with Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd. to acquire select anti-allergy brands.

As per the agreement, which is subject to completion of certain precedent actions and closing activities, Hyderabad-based Dr Reddy's will acquire brands Momat Rino (for Russia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan), Momat Rino Advance (for Russia), Momat A (for Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan), Glenspray and Glenspray Active (for Ukraine), along-with rights to the trademarks, dossiers and patents for the territories mentioned.

“The new brands are a great addition to our product portfolio in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan which are important core markets for us.
