POTOMAC, Md., August 08, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--India Globalization Capital, Inc. ("IGC" or the "Company") (NYSE American: IGC) announces its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022, which is the first quarter of the Company’s 2023 fiscal year.
The highlights for the quarter are:
The Company has submitted a protocol to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) titled "A Phase 2, Multi-Center, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, trial of the safety and efficacy of IGC-AD1 on agitation in participants with dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease." The protocol is powered at 146 Alzheimer’s patients with half receiving placebo and is a superiority, parallel group study. The primary end point is agitation in dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease as rated by the Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory (CMAI) over a six-week period. The Company has signed agreements with trial sites for conducting the trial, pending FDA approval.
On June 7, 2022, the USPTO issued a patent (#11,351,152) to the Company titled "Method and Composition for Treating Seizure Disorders." The patent relates to compositions and methods for treating multiple types of seizure disorders and epilepsy in humans and animals using a combination of the CBD with other compounds. Subject to further research and study, the combination is intended to reduce side effects caused by hydantoin anticonvulsant drugs such as phenobarbital, by reducing the dosing of anticonvulsant drugs in humans, dogs, and cats.
On May 10, 2022, Hamsa Biopharma India Pvt. Ltd. ("Hamsa Biopharma"), a directly owned subsidiary of the Company, completed outstanding items in the agreement executed with the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research ("JNCASR"). The agreement was signed on March 28, 2022, and the Company obtained exclusive global rights to certain molecules, technology, patent, and patent filings.
Revenue was approximately $212 thousand and $77 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2022, and June 30, 2021, respectively. Revenue in both quarters was primarily derived from our Life Sciences segment, which involved sales of products such as lotion, gummies, and alcohol-based hand sanitizers, among others.
Selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were approximately $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, and approximately $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, a decrease of approximately $226 thousand or 13% stemming mostly from a decrease in marketing and legal expenses. SG&A expenses consist primarily of employee-related expenses, sales and marketing, professional and legal fees, other corporate expenses, allocated general overhead and provisions, depreciation and write-offs relating to doubtful accounts and advances, if any.
Research and Development ("R&D") expenses were $1.4 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022, and approximately $444 thousand for the three-month ended June 30, 2021. The increase of approximately $950 thousand or 214% is primarily attributable to the progression of Phase 2 trials on IGC-AD1 and pre-clinical studies on TGR-63. We anticipate additional increases in R&D expenses as the Phase 2 trials on IGC-AD1 commence.
Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022, was approximately $2.8 million or ($0.05) per share, compared to approximately $1.8 million or ($0.04) per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
IGC has two segments: Life Sciences and Infrastructure. The company is based in Maryland, U.S.A.
