Ram Mukunda CEO of IGC said, "PRC Ironman has audited revenues of approximately $13.5 million and approximately $5.9 million in net after tax earnings for FYE March 31, 2011 and a good liquid balance sheet. In addition to an immediate impact on earnings, this acquisition will greatly enhance our position in the materials business by creating a rapidly growing, profitable iron ore business for IGC. PRC Ironman refines low-grade ore to high-grade ore, which commands a higher price and margin in the market. Our strategy is to both mine and ship low-grade ore to the refining facilities and through a beneficiation process convert the ore to high-grade ore. Over the next 24 months, we expect to expand this business rapidly through organic growth. Additionally, there are great values in this space which may provide additional opportunities for bolt-on acquisitions. This is the first step towards creating a value added, vertically integrated iron ore business that extends from India into China."
