Bethesda, Feb. 6, 2013 (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, today announced it intends to voluntarily delist its Units, which are currently trading under the symbol IGC.U (CUSIP number 45408X209 ), from the NYSE MKT (the "Exchange"). The number of Unit holders is less than a hundred and it barely trades. After a review of the expense of maintaining the Units listed, the Board of Directors of the Company determined that it is in the best interests of IGC to voluntarily delist its Units from NYSE MKT. The Company formally notified NYSE MKT on February 5, 2013 of the Company's intention to file a Form 25 - Notification of Removal from Listing and/or Registration under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with the SEC on or about February 15, 2013. The Company expects that the delisting will take effect on or about February 26, 2013. The Company does not intend to re-list its Units on another securities exchange. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock and two warrants. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of common stock. The common stock and warrants are currently listed and trade under the symbols IGC and IGC.WT, respectively. Holders of the Units may contact the Company in order to separate the Units into common stock and warrants at any time including after the Units are delisted from the Exchange.
