Bethesda, Maryland, Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC), a company competing in the rapidly growing materials and infrastructure industry in India and China, today announced the extension of the expiration date for 11,855,122 outstanding warrants listed on the NYSE MKT exchange with ticker symbol IGC.WT and CUSIP number (45408X118). The warrants have an exercise price of $5.00 and were scheduled to expire on March 8, 2013. The expiration date of the warrants has been extended from 5:00 p.m. New York time on March 8, 2013 until 5:00 p.m. New York time on Friday, March 6, 2015. As was the case prior to the extension, the warrants are subject to earlier expiration if the Company exercises its right to call the warrants for redemption. All other terms remain the same. The Company has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to register the shares underlining the warrants to permit the exercise of the warrants. Currently, the Company has such a registration statement effective. Holders of the warrants will be able to exercise the warrants for cash since such a registration statement is effective. This communication shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the shares underlying the warrants in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state. Currently IGC has three securities listed: Common Stock (IGC), Warrants (IGC.WT) and the Units (IGC.U). As previously disclosed the Company intends to delist the Units and continue listing the other two securities. Investors holding the Units are encouraged to contact the Company in order to split the Units into common stock and warrants. None of a) the delisting of the Units, 2) splitting of the Units, or 3) extension of the Warrant expiration will have any bearing on the basic or fully diluted shares outstanding.
