SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - Infinity Resources Holdings Corp. (
While the merger was not completed during this period, the management teams and Boards of Directors of both organizations believe that a combination of the businesses can be in the best interest of many stakeholders, and they continue to seek a transaction structure that will achieve the combination of the two companies and result in an overall growth in shareholder value.
Brian Dick, Chief Executive Officer of Quest, said, "The economic and structural reasons to combine these organizations are many.
