Ecoark Holdings, Inc. Submits Listing Application for the Nasdaq Capital Market

ROGERS, AR (May 17, 2016) – Ecoark Holdings, Inc. (EARK), a provider of a growing suite of proprietary technologies and services that drive sustainability and facilitate sustainable growth for a wide range of clients, today announced it has submitted its application to be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market®.

“We are excited for the opportunity for inclusion into The Nasdaq Capital Market, as it represents the endless hard work of the entire Ecoark team. Joining The Nasdaq Capital Market would provide us with a much broader visibility, while also making our stock available to a greater number of investors,” said Randy May, CEO, Ecoark Holdings, Inc. “In addition to our existing revenue producing businesses, we expect Intelleflex, our solution for fresh food management, to enter into a period of significant growth in revenue and operating profit. We believe we are well positioned to continue our growth and leverage this significant market opportunity, and joining The Nasdaq Capital Market is a significant step toward achieving those results.”

The Company believes, with the completion of its recent equity offering and acquisition of Sable Polymer Solutions, it meets the financial and liquidity requirements for listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market.

The Company must also meet Nasdaq governance standards for public companies, including a board with a majority of independent directors, which was achieved with the recent appointment of three industry leaders to its Board. With these additions, the appointment of new officers and the adoption of corporate governance policies, the Company has taken steps to achieve the Nasdaq Capital Market listing.
