India Globalization Capital Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended September 30, 2013


BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IGC) a company competing in the rapidly growing materials and infrastructure industry in India and China, announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Ram Mukunda, CEO of India Globalization Capital, said, "We are pleased to report that we have begun to operationalize the first of our three beneficiation plants in Inner Mongolia. We currently have approximately $500 million of estimated iron ore reserves based on current pricing."

IGC's overall strategy is to acquire a significant portfolio of distressed assets in the metals and mining space to take advantage of current market opportunities. We are pursuing several strategic acquisitions intended to dramatically increase our mining reserves in a more diversified portfolio. This is an opportune time for us to build such a portfolio, as this sector is largely undervalued and many smaller mining companies are distressed. By focusing on accretive acquisitions, we believe, the Company can both diversify its holdings and generate strong returns for our shareholders. Our fundamental view to support this strategy is that the value of assets we are aggregating will grow rapidly in the more inflationary environment expected over the next several years given the expanding amount of currency in the global monetary system and a renewed growth in global GDP.

Total revenue was $1,133,585 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 as compared to $1,351,466 for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

In the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company reported a GAAP net income loss of ($615,187) and a GAAP EPS loss of ($0.09) compared to a GAAP net income loss of ($142,708) and a GAAP EPS loss of ($0.02) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 The increased loss is attributable to three non-cash factors: 1) increased SG&A from the grant of ESOP shares, 2) foreign exchange losses due to the devaluation of the Indian Rupee against the US Dollar and 3) non cash interest payments made on the loans outstanding. Non GAAP EPS after accounting for the non-cash one-time items was ($0.05) per basic and diluted share.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $474,951 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 as compared to $341,783 for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in SG&A is from the expense associated with the grant of ESOP shares for the fiscal year 2013.

For the period ended September 30, 2013, our cash and cash equivalents along with restricted cash was approximately $726,768.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's stockholders' equity was approximately $14,465,020 compared with about $14,974,230 for the period ended March 31, 2013. The Company reported total assets of approximately $18,541,672 as of September 30, 2013 versus about $19,252,593 as of March 31, 2013.

The book value of the company as of September 30, 2013 was $2.03 and the tangible book value was $1.95 based on the weighted average number of Basic and Fully Diluted Shares outstanding at the end of the quarter.

Mukunda continued, "We believe that the markets will begin to recognize the value of our assets, as these assets represent a stream of future income. We have an exciting opportunity to build a large valuable resources company both in the coming quarters and longer term in the coming years."
