IGC and MTP to Host Major Themes Investment Conference on June 9, 2015 in NYC Featuring a Legal Cannabis Presentation Track

Bethesda, MD, March 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE-MKT: IGC) announces its inaugural Major Themes Investment Conference featuring a legal cannabis presentation track to be held in NYC at the Harvard Club on June 9, 2015.

This event will feature corporate presentations, key note speakers and will include a specialized track of North American companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry. Midtown Partners LLC ("MTP"), our New York broker-dealer will host the conference.

"We are pleased to announce our first major themes investment conference as we continue to focus on providing investment banking services to the legal cannabis industry. This is a great opportunity for investors to hear from legal cannabis companies, access cannabis thought leaders, obtain market and regulatory analysis and evaluate investment potential in an industry that we believe is an emerging major investment theme. Over the next six years, according to a report by GreenWave Advisors, sales of cannabis could total $21 billion if just 12 states legalize recreational cannabis. The potential market of cannabis derived pharmaceuticals, cannabis delivery systems, and peripheral businesses could be significantly larger," said John Clarke Managing Director of Midtown Partners.

"We are looking forward to this important NYC major themes conference and remain confident in our efforts of building long-term shareholder value through a diversified base of operating segments," stated Ram Mukunda, CEO of IGC, Inc.
