MOIL Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

Our Company was incorporated on June 22, 1962 as a public limited company with the RoC under the name
Manganese Ore (India) Limited under the provisions of the Companies Act. Subsequently, the name of our
Company was changed from Manganese Ore (India) Limited to MOIL Limited and a fresh certificate of
incorporation consequent upon change of name was issued by the RoC on August 17, 2010. This name change was
deemed appropriate on the basis that our Company is better known within the industry, to its customers and the
general public as MOIL.

In 1896, a British company by the name of Central Provinces Prospecting Syndicate was set up. In 1924, it changed
its name to the Central Provinces Manganese Ore Company Limited ('CPMO'). CPMO ran extensive mining
operations for manganese ore within the present-day state of Madhya Pradesh prior to Indian independence.

Our Company was set up pursuant to an agreement dated June 8, 1962 between the GoI and CPMO (the '1962
Agreement'). Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, our Company was incorporated and certain assets of CPMO
were transferred to us in return for 49% of Equity Shares of our Company. Our Company was incorporated with a
view to inter alia, obtain and work mining leases for manganese ore over the Nagpur, Dongri Buzurg and other
areas.

In 1977, CPMO ceased its involvement with our Company following a sale of its entire shareholding and certain
other properties and assets associated with our operations to the Government of India, for an aggregate consideration
of ' 15,067,758 pursuant to an agreement dated September 21, 1977, (the '1977 Agreement'). The transfer of all
these assets, both movable and immovable was made free from any and all liens, encumbrances, lis-pendens,
charges and hypothecation.

The Government of India vide letter dated September 21, 1977 had nominated our Company as the recipient of the
assets transferred by CPMO under the 1977 Agreement.
