India Globalization Capital Enters Into An Agreement To Acquire The Minority Interest In TBL

Bethesda, Oct. 18, 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 today that it has entered into a comprehensive agreement, pursuant to which TBL becomes a fully-owned subsidiary of IGC. Currently, IGC owns 76.87% of TBL.

As a part of the consolidation effort to create management efficiency and focus, IGC through one of its subsidiaries in India, is buying the remaining 23.13% of the TBL shares still owned by the other TBL shareholders. According to the Agreements, IGC will receive from the Jortin Antony Group their 23.13% shareholding in TBL and other miscellaneous items as described in the two Agreements filed today on Form 8-K. The Jortin Group will receive the Vypin Land, a property that is in the name of TBL and pledged as collateral to a bank in India, and about $200,000 (assuming 50 INR to 1 USD) on receipt of the money from TBL's claim against the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).

Both parties have agreed to a mutual release or indemnity against future legal actions. On receipt of the Vypin Land, the Jortin Anthony Group also frees TBL of the liability associated with the bank.

IGC's CEO, Mr. Ram Mukunda, said: "This is a great opportunity to fully acquire TBL which we believe has significant value. Currently, TBL has $3 million in filed claims and an estimated $6 million in other unfiled claims.  As we have said before, we expect to realize a substantial award on the filed claim in the very near future. TBL also has substantial operating assets which we are either redeploying in our mining operations or leasing out to third parties."
