Ecoark Holdings Is Exploring Strategic Options

Ecoark Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK:EARK) announced that the Board of Directors has given its leadership the authority to explore strategic options related to Zest Labs, Inc., including but not limited to a potential spin-off of the company. Ecoark leadership will evaluate all options for Zest Labs in an effort to unlock long-term shareholder value and maximize Zest Labs' opportunity to lead the agriculture and supply chain industries with cloud-based software solutions, helping farmers, distributors and grocers substantially reduce the 30 percent food waste problem currently burdening the post-harvest fresh food industry. "Our executive team unanimously feels there is great potential for Zest Labs to generate more shareholder value as a standalone company than as a wholly owned subsidiary within our holding company," said Jay Puchir, Chief Executive Officer of Ecoark. "We are closely evaluating all options, and this board authorization is a key step to establishing Zest Labs as a viable standalone player in this rapidly emerging market."
