Aventis Pharma is now Sanofi India

Shareholders of the company had earlier approved the name change at the annual general meeting held on 3 May, a company statement said here.

Commenting on the name change, Shailesh Ayyangar, managing director, said, 'Just like Sanofi Group, the company in India is also evolving and diversifying at the same time. The new name reflects Sanofi's ambition to become a diversified global healthcare leader focused on patients' needs and the synergy between the Group and local entity.'

The decision to change the name of the Group's listed entity in India comes a year after the name of the parent company was changed globally from Sanofi-Aventis to Sanofi in May 2011.

'The change in name of the listed entity to Sanofi India Limited will also provide a common identity to the Sanofi Group across the world,' Ayyangar said on Wednesday.
