Wockhardt Limited, which was once a well known pharma major, ended up in financial mess after a spree of acquisitions in India and abroad, in large part through leverage. The increased debt burden and losses in complex currency derivatives hedging left the company in precarious situation. Overcoming these challenges in a gloomy economic environment and in a heavily leveraged condition was a challenge to the company.
