As previously reported, in December 2011, India Globalization

Economic and Trade Co., known as Linxi HF Economic and Trade Co.,
a Peoples Republic of China-based company (PRC Ironman), by
acquiring 100% of the equity of HF Ironman Limited, a Hong Kong
company (HK Ironman). The Acquisition was accounted for under the
acquisition method of accounting in accordance with ASC Topic
805, Business Combinations. Further information on this
acquisition and the purchase price allocation was set out in IGCs
Form 10-K for fiscal year ended March 31, 2012 filed with the SEC
on July 16, 2012. In February 2015, IGC filed a lawsuit in the
circuit court of Maryland related to the acquisition seeking to
have the court order rescission of the underlying 2011
Acquisition Agreement and to void any past or future transfer of
IGC shares to the defendants-sellers.

As reported in IGCs Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31,

185 miles from Tianjin Port and 125 miles from Jinzhou Port. At
the time of purchase on December 30, 2011, the beneficiation
