India Globalization Capital Announces Financial Results for Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IGC) announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

IGC's fiscal year ends on March 31, 2015. Therefore the quarter being reported is the second quarter of fiscal year ending on March 31, 2015 ("Q2 2015") and the corresponding quarter for the previous fiscal year is Q2 2014.

Revenue for Q2 2015 was $2,117,816 compared to $1,133,585 for Q2 2014. Total revenue for the September quarter increased by 87% over the corresponding quarter in the previous fiscal year. The increase in revenue relates to an increase in the volume of trading commodities and electronics and leasing heavy equipment in India. The Company anticipates revenue to continue to grow as we expand our trading, leasing and vertical farming businesses.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $791,428 for Q2 2015 and $474,951 for Q2 2014. The increase in SG&A for the three months ended September 30, 2014 included a one-time expense of $258,209 related to acquisition cost. On a Non-GAAP basis, the G&A including non-cash items but excluding acquisition costs was $533,219 for Q2 2015 versus $474,951 for Q2 2014. The expanded G&A reflects our measures for reaching profitability and building intellectual property in legal cannabis.

In Q2 2015, the Company reported a GAAP net loss of $887,399 and a GAAP EPS loss of $0.07 inclusive of acquisition related expenses, compared to a GAAP loss of $615,187 and a GAAP EPS loss of $0.09 for Q2 2014.

For the period ended September 30, 2014, our cash and cash equivalents along with restricted cash was approximately $1,354,803 and our stockholders' equity was approximately $15,926,976 compared with about $14,145,296 for the period ended March 31, 2014.

Ram Mukunda, CEO commented, " Our short term goals are to increase revenue, expand margins and achieve sustained and growing profitability. We expect to achieve our goals through four business operations: the electronic trading platform for commodities and electronics; leasing of equipment; vertical farming operations; and our developing legal cannabis business. Two of these operations are now contributing to revenue. We expect them to continue to grow and increasingly contribute to profitability. We have been investing significantly in higher margin vertical farming facilities and products and expect this to contribute revenue and margins beginning in early 2015. Finally, we continue to develop a comprehensive strategy for the emerging legal cannabis market. We believe that we are in the very early stages of this industry and we hope to establish a leading position as it becomes better defined.

We believe that the best way to drive shareholder value is to execute in each of these business operations. We are very excited about the possibilities for next year as all the pieces of this strategy are beginning to come together."
