POTOMAC, Md.–()–India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE American: IGC) announces its financial results for the three months ending December 31, 2021 – quarter three of the Company’s 2022 fiscal year.

Highlights include:

  • The Company appointed former congressman James Moran to its Board of Directors. During his 24 years in Congress, Moran was recognized as a champion of innovative research and development in areas including healthcare and national security, environmental protection and sustainability, and international trade and fiscal responsibility.
  • The Company completed a Phase 1 clinical trial for IGC-AD1, an investigational new Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) based drug candidate designed to treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. As previously reported, the trial analyzed the safety and efficacy of different dosages, and the results were encouraging. Patients receiving the drug showed a decrease in agitation, anxiety, depression and other Neuropsychiatric Symptoms (NPS). From the trial, we gained valuable knowledge about the impact of dosing that will be studied further in additional clinical trials, subject to FDA approval. Complete findings have been submitted in the Clinical/Statistical Report (“CSR”) filed with the FDA.
  • While market conditions are subject to change, and there can be no assurances, the Company hopes and believes that, if IGC-AD1 can gain FDA approval, it can have a substantial impact on the lives of Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. We believe the demand for a drug that can reduce symptoms such as agitation, anxiety, and depression in Alzheimer’s patients is potentially significant. On September 17, 2021, the Company filed a patent application, IGC-513, to protect these initial trial findings.
  • The Company is currently planning to proceed with additional clinical trials for IGC-AD1. We plan to submit a protocol to the FDA, for a large, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial to test the impact of IGC-AD1 in relieving agitation in dementia due to Alzheimer’s.
  • On October 28, 2021, the Company won the Best CBD Topical award for its broad-spectrum hemp extract cream called Holi Wonder™ at the USA CBD Expo event held in Chicago, Illinois.
  • On October 5, 2021, the Company received a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certificate for its manufacturing and processing facility in Vancouver, Washington.

The Company’s financial results for the quarter ending December 31, 2021 relative to the same period a year ago:

  • The Life Sciences segment, which includes the sale of hemp-based products such as lotion, gummies, and hand sanitizers was the largest revenue driver with $134 thousand in revenue for the quarter, compared to $56 thousand the year prior.
  • The Infrastructure segment, which includes a construction contract, was $8 thousand in the quarter, relative to $52 thousand the year prior.

Primarily due to COVID-19, we expect volatility in both segments in the foreseeable future and it is difficult to predict when either segment will generate significant, stable revenue.

The following expense results refer to the quarters ending December 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020:

  • Research and Development (R&D) expenses related to the Phase 1 clinical trial described above and product research in our Life Sciences segment was approximately $377 thousand compared to $154 thousand the year prior. We expect R&D expenses to increase with subsequent IGC-AD1 clinical trials, subject to FDA approval.
  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $2.07 million in the quarter, a decrease of $116 thousand relative to $2.19 million the year prior. The SG&A decrease includes a one-time inventory-related adjustments of $245 thousand.
  • Net loss was approximately $2.38 million or ($0.05) per share, compared to approximately $2.32 million or ($0.06) per share in the same quarter the prior year.
