Be Active Holdings Engages Hayden IR
Readies Itself for Re-Launch After Year of Transition Launching Investor Relations Effort to Target and Expand Investor Reach
NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Be Active Holdings, Inc. (JALA), a manufacturer and marketer of frozen Greek yogurt under the Jala brand, announced it has engaged Hayden IR, a fifteen-year old, highly recognized, national investor relations firm, to raise its visibility, strengthen its relationships with the investment community and provide strategic corporate development advisory. The Jala brand is low fat, low calorie, all natural probiotic enriched frozen Greek yogurt designed to appeal to the health conscious or weight conscious consumer. Be Active Holdings’ Founder and President Sam Pugliese was previously President of Skinny Cow ice cream brand which was sold to Nestle for $76 million.
“Over the past year, we have taken the necessary steps to better position us for growth and reward shareholders. Jala frozen Greek yogurt, with limited capital, generated $1 million revenue in 2012, proving its natural taste, business model and distribution relationships. 2013 has been a transition year as we became a public company in January 2013 and have since derived a plan for growth and prepared Jala for a re-launch of its natural Greek yogurt brand. These are important steps as we begin to enter the re-positioning and growth phase for Jala,” said Sam Pugliese, the Company’s Founder and President. Mr. Pugliese continued to say, “we believe it is an appropriate time to retain a national investor relations firm to help us target and expand our investor audience and ensure we are communicating effectively with Wall Street. We look forward to working with the team of professionals at Hayden IR to execute this important goal.”
