Ecoark Holdings is a diversified holding company engaged in three primary business segments: Oil and Gas, Financial Services, and Food Freshness Management solutions.
At Ecoark Holdings we understand that large, mature markets can be inefficient where dominant companies dictate terms and ignore efficiency for the sake of predictable performance and stable market share. Shifts in market conditions and/or technology present opportunities for smaller, more nimble institutions that can address these inefficiencies for sizeable gains. Ecoark Holdings specializes in identifying discounted assets that address market inefficiencies and positions them for growth and financial success.
