IGC Reports Financial Results for Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2024


IGC Pharma, Inc. ("IGC" or the "Company") (NYSE American: IGC), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, has announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2024 ("Fiscal 2024").

Full Fiscal Year Highlights

Ram Mukunda, CEO of IGC Pharma, commented, "During the fiscal year we accomplished multiple key milestones and significantly advanced our strategy to bring to market treatments to fight Alzheimer's ? a devastating disease affecting a growing patient population around the globe. The most important achievement in our development pipeline was the positive interim results on IGC-AD1, a significant development in the fight against Alzheimer's and a reflection of our commitment to advancing our product portfolio and delivering value to all stakeholders. Furthermore, the positive results from preclinical studies of TGR-63 demonstrated its success in reducing plaque burden in Alzheimer's cell lines and animal models, making it a promising therapeutic candidate for the disease. Looking ahead, we are increasingly optimistic about our prospects to build upon these positive results and deliver long-term value to stakeholders. We appreciate the dedication and hard work of our team, whose efforts have been instrumental in achieving these results. We remain focused on executing our strategic initiatives and are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead."

Financial Summary

In Fiscal 2024, the Company generated approximately $1.3 million in revenue, representing an increase from the $911 thousand generated in Fiscal 2023. The primary source of revenue in both years was from the Life Sciences segment, encompassing the sale of our formulations as white-labeled manufactured products, among others. The increase in revenue derived from the Company's commitment to its current strategy of driving sales in formulations both as branded and white-labeled products in the Life Science segment. Approximately 10%-12% of revenue in both years was derived from the infrastructure segment.

The Company reported selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for Fiscal 2024 at approximately $6.7 million, representing a decrease of approximately $2 million, or 21%, compared to the $8.5 million recorded in Fiscal 2023. This decline in SG&A expenses is attributable to a reduction in non-cash expenses and costs related to employees as well as legal & professional services.

In Fiscal 2024, the Company reported research and development ("R&D") expenses of approximately $3.8 million, representing an increase of $312 thousand or 9% compared to approximately $3.5 million in Fiscal 2023. The increase in R&D expenses is primarily attributed to the progression of Phase 2 trials on IGC-AD1 and pre-clinical studies on TGR-63, indicating the Company's dedication to advancing its product pipeline. As the development of TGR-63 and the Phase 2 trial on Alzheimer's gain momentum, the Company anticipates further increases in R&D expenses.

To streamline operations and dedicate resources to our core pharmaceutical business, we strategically divested non-core assets. This resulted in a positive impact on our focus and a one-time impairment of PP&E of approximately $3.3 million.

Net loss for Fiscal 2024 was approximately $13 million or $0.22 per share, compared to approximately $11.5 million or $0.22 per share for Fiscal 2023. The net loss for Fiscal 2024 includes a one-time impairment of PP&E of approximately $3.3 million.

About IGC Pharma, Inc.

IGC Pharma Inc. ("IGC") is focused on Alzheimer's disease, developing innovative solutions to address this devastating illness. The Company's mission is to transform the landscape of Alzheimer's treatment with a robust pipeline of five promising drug candidates. IGC-AD1 and LMP target the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, including neuroinflammation, A? plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles. IGC-AD1 is currently undergoing a Phase 2 clinical trial for agitation in dementia associated with Alzheimer's (clinicaltrials.gov, NCT05543681). TGR-63 disrupts the progression of Alzheimer's by targeting A? plaques. IGC-M3, currently in preclinical development, aims to inhibit the aggregation of A? plaques, potentially impacting early-stage Alzheimer's. IGC-1C, also in preclinical stages, targets tau protein and neurofibrillary tangles, representing a forward-thinking approach to Alzheimer's therapy. In addition to its drug development pipeline, IGC Pharma seeks to leverage artificial intelligence ("AI") for Alzheimer's research. Their AI projects encompass various areas, including clinical trial optimization and early detection of Alzheimer's.
