India Globalization Capital Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2012

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2011) - India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE Amex: IGC), a company competing in the rapidly growing materials and infrastructure industry in India, announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 ended September 30, 2011.

Ram Mukunda CEO of IGC said, "This quarter the team has been focused on the announced acquisition of Ironman. This has involved completing the financial and legal due diligence, drafting a proxy statement with pro forma financials and testing iron ore samples in the Ironman plant in China to determine the optimal grade and price points at which low grade ore can be shipped to China for processing in the plant. We are excited about the potential synergies and growth opportunities this acquisition provides. We believe the acquisition will be highly accretive to the stock. In the next week, or so, we will announce a great deal more information on Ironman including the financials pro forma financials and an outlook."

Total revenue for IGC was $912 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to $1,682 for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The revenue reported does not include revenue of about $642 thousand that was generated by our joint venture.

The selling, general and administrative expenses this quarter were slightly larger than expected because of expenses involving the Ironman acquisition.

For the three months ended September 30, 2011, the Company has recorded an income amounting to $26 thousand resulting from its share in the joint venture that is reflected as another investment in the balance sheet. The joint venture primarily operates in the rock aggregate crushing and trading business. We are also entitled to an interest on the capital that is invested in this joint venture. The joint venture operates one crusher and for the three months ended September 30, 2011, generated revenue of approximately $642 thousand, which is not reflected in the consolidated revenue.
