Overview

Oaknet Lifesciences was launched in April 2015 by R S Raghav and a distinguished team of experts combining 150 years of experience, significant achievements & status amongst the top 10 pharma companies in the Indian Pharmaceutical Market (IPM).

The Managing director & Founder of Oaknet Lifesciences has served one of India’s leading company and built a business from Rs 50 crores to Rs 1,500 crores and provided significant growth opportunities to more than 2,000 employees. The teams’ core strength is NCD business (Non Communicable Disease) i.e. cardiology, diabetes, neurology, building business & credibility for the team and organization. Value-integrated performance is a core strength of the team.

In November 2016, Oaknet along with Investors scaled up the business by acquiring the Indian Operations of South African MNC Adcock Ingram Healthcare. The new entity thus created, Oaknet Healthcare Pvt Ltd enjoys market presence of a legacy business of the Cosme Farma spanning close to four decades in such specialities as Dermatology, Gynaecology & Orthopaedics. This deal gave Oaknet Healthcare access to the fast-growing dermatology & gynaecology segments with brands having a presence for 40 years in the country. With the acquisition of Adcock Ingram, Oaknet Healthcare became one of the fastest Indian Company to reach amongst the Top 100 Companies in the IPM.

The combined operation of Oaknet Healthcare and Oaknet Lifesciences has a revenue size of around INR 1,500 million.

Oaknet with tremendous leadership expertise in the IPM is poised to create history by scaling up revenues to INR 10 billion over the next 5 years through organic and inorganic growth. Specialities of focus are Cardiology, Diabetes, Dermatology, Gynaecology, Pain Management, Ophthalmology and Neurology.

At Oaknet we believe our strength lies in our Brands and our Team.
