In this month’s issue of ValueNotes Connect, our analysts cover the M&A activity in Q2 2011 and the effects of SEBI’s new takeover norms on M&As in India; explore opportunities available in India’s growing LED market; analyse the effects of the new Product Patent Regime on India’s pharmaceutical sector; and look at the opportunities for foreign players in the Indian waste water management sector. As always, we thank you for taking the time to go through this, and we look forward to your feedback.
