Business Highlights

In March 2010, IBC completed a short-form prospectus offering that raised gross proceeds of $10.2 million and net cash proceeds of $9.1 million. The primary uses of proceeds were to acquire and expand Beralcast(r) Corporation, finance business development programs and fund exploration work on our mineral properties.

In March 2010, IBC completed the acquisition of Beralcast(r) Corporation, a privately held specialty alloy manufacturing business that owns proprietary and patented technology for a castable beryllium aluminum alloy that is currently used in a wide variety of aerospace and advanced technology applications.

"The March 31, 2010 quarter marked an important milestone for IBC with our manufacturing operations generating positive EBITDA for consecutive quarters. While the short-term prospects for the world economy remain uncertain, IBC continues to strengthen its business and financial foundation," said Mr. Anthony Dutton, President and CEO of IBC. "Also during the quarter we closed an over-subscribed prospectus offering reflecting the market's confidence in IBC's business plan. The financing will allow IBC to achieve critical milestones, including the purchase of Beralcast(r) Corporation and to begin a phased exploration program on our Juab Country claims adjacent to the Spor Mountain mine. IBC also received a significant boost to its nuclear fuels research program in the quarter" continued Dutton, "with the appointment of Jim Malone as VP of Nuclear Fuels. This is a significant endorsement of the BeO nuclear fuels research program and we are looking forward to continued progress on this front. IBC remains committed to its focus of business integration, core demand generation built on a platform of superior financial performance."
