Sun Pharmaceutical Industries acquired Canada-based Aquinox Pharmaceuticals for $8.2 million through its wholly owned subsidiary Taro Pharmaceutical Industries.

Taro Pharmaceutical, a US based subsidiary of Sun Pharma, will acquire 100 per cent stake in the company.

In a regulatory filing, Sun Pharma said Aquinox Pharmaceuticals is a corporation organised and existing under the laws of the Province of British Columbia that carries on the business of research and development of pharmaceutical products for purposes of their commercialisation.

The company said that the acquisition is likely to be completed by 31 July and no approvals are required for it.
