CURRENT REPORT ON FORM 8-K

India Globalization Capital, Inc.

 Item 3.01.

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

 

On October 29, 2018, India Globalization Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notification letter from the NYSE American LLC (the “Exchange”) stating that it had determined to commence proceedings to delist the Company’s common stock from the Exchange. The common stock has been suspended since the market open on NYSE American on the same date.

 

NYSE Regulation commenced delisting proceedings against the Company pursuant to Section 1003(c) (i) of the NYSE American Company Guide (the "Company Guide''), which states that where the issuer has substantially discontinued the business that it conducted at the time it was listed or admitted to trading, and has become engaged in ventures or promotions which have not developed to a commercial stage or the success of which is problematical, it shall not be considered an operating company for the purposes of continued trading and listing on the Exchange.

 

NYSE Regulation also considered Section 1003(f) (iii) because the Company or its management have engaged in operations that, in the opinion of the Exchange, are contrary to the public interest. Section 1009(a) (ii) of the Company Guide states that it is necessary and appropriate for the protection of investors to immediately suspend trading in the Company's common stock.

 

Under NYSE American delisting procedures, the Company has a right to a review of this determination by a Committee of the Board of Directors of the Exchange, provided a written request is filed with the Assistant Corporate Secretary of the Exchange, within seven calendar days after receiving this notice, specifying the grounds on which the Company intends to challenge NYSE Regulation's decision for such a review, and along with payment of a non-refundable appeal fee in the amount of $10,000 for an oral hearing or $8,000 for a hearing based on a written submission.

 

The Company is in the process of evaluating its options including (a) challenging the NYSE decision, (b) applying to alternative exchanges in the U.S. for example, the OTC markets, and (c) applying to an exchange in Canada to list our common stock for public trading. The Company is actively pursuing the resumption of trading.
