Drug firm Aurobindo Pharma on Tuesday said it has completed the sale of Natrol LLC, a wholly-owned unit of its US-based subsidiary, to private equity firm New Mountain Capital. In October this year, the company had announced that it had inked a pact to divest Natrol LLC to private equity firm New Mountain Capital for USD 550 million.

"The aforesaid transaction has been completed on November 30, 2020," Aurobindo Pharma said in a regulatory filing. Aurobindo Pharma had acquired Natrol in December 2014.
