India Globalization Capital Announces Financial Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

Thursday, November 15, 2012 8:01 AM

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IGC) (NYSE Amex: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, 2012.

Total revenue for IGC was approximately $1.35 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to approximately $0.91 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The revenue in the quarter is mostly from trading iron ore and other materials.

In the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported a GAAP net income loss amounting to approximately $165 thousand and a GAAP EPS of $0.00 compared to a consolidated net loss of about $798 thousand and an EPS loss of ($0.04) for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were approximately $342 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to approximately $652 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The Company, as previously disclosed, has expended considerable resources aligning G&A to the mining and trading business. The significant decrease in G&A reflects a reduction in overheads associated with unprofitable businesses.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, our non-GAAP cash burn was approximately $109 thousand after adjusting for non-cash items and write backs. This amount does not take into account approximately $55 thousand of income from investments that do not flow through the P&L. Taking this into account the non-GAAP cash burn for the quarter was approximately $54 thousand.

For the period ended September 30, 2012, our cash and cash equivalents along with restricted cash was approximately $624 thousand.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company's stockholders' equity was approximately $15.2 million compared to about $15.8 million for the period ended March 31, 2012.

The Company reported total assets of approximately $24.2 million as of September 30, 2012 versus about $25.3 million as of March 30, 2012. As of September 30, 2012 the Company had $967,769 in working capital.

As previously disclosed, the Company has access to about INR 140 million ($2.5 million at an exchange rate of 55 INR to 1 USD) in funds deposited by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) with the high court in Delhi against an arbitration award that was won by TBL. The Company is allowed to access the amount deposited with the court immediately, but is required to make arrangements for a letter of credit to the high Court. The court is expected to meet on December 19, 2012 for a final decision on the claim. It is the Company expectation that the amount, subject to some adjustments relative to the rate of interest, will be released to the Company. The Company therefore, has decided not to issue a letter of credit preferring instead to await the outcome of the ruling.

Ram Mukunda, CEO of India Globalization Capital, said, "This quarter reflects our efforts to realign resources and the extinguishment of expensive debt. We have also brought our costs in line with our operational focus going forward. Finally, we have completed the integration of Ironman."

Mukunda added, "In the near future, after the once in a decade political process of leadership transition in China is completed, we will focus on opening the first of our mines. We are now beginning to fill orders from our Chinese customers through our trading operations. This lower margin business will transition to higher margins as we supply ore from our beneficiation plants. As reported in Bloomberg, in September, China approved $158 billion for infrastructure as part of a stimulus plan that is expected to boost the demand for commodities. Ore prices have started to recover from their lows of $86 in September to around $110. We are satisfied with the position we are in with about $500 million of iron ore deposits, four mine sites, and three beneficiation plants. We expect to be opportunistic in adding to these reserves and production capacity through strategic acquisitions."
