India Globalization Capital (NYSE American: IGC) (dba IGC Inc.) will begin operating under the name IGC Pharma Inc. (dba IGC), effective March 30, 2023; the name change is one aspect of the company’s rebranding strategy designed to better reflect its strategic focus and vision for the future. IGC’s common stock will trade on NYSE American exchange under the new name on March 31, 2023; the symbol will remain the same: IGC. According to the announcement, the change in name to IGC Pharma better represents the company’s focus as a developer of drug assets for treating diseases, including but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease. IGC is currently developing what it believes is the first natural, cannabis-based, patent-protected compound that relies on low doses of THC and another compound as pharmaceutically active agents (“APIs”) for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The investigational medication, IGC-AD1, is currently in a phase 2 trial. “Our business has gone through a transformation over the past several years, and changing our name to IGC Pharma Inc. (dba IGC) represents a major milestone by now clearly aligning our name with our strategic focus as a leading developer and provider of THC-based drug assets,” said IGC Pharma CEO Ram Mukunda in the press release. “We’re encouraged by the performance of our investigational drug candidate, IGC-AD1, in FDA trials on agitation in Alzheimer’s, and our consumer products continue to gain traction in the market. Given our progress, we felt it made sense to rebrand and rename our company to more accurately reflect our business focus, our research and development progress in the phase 2 clinical trial on Alzheimer’s and our strategic vision.”
