Basta Holdings Comments on Monarch Air Group's Ordering Agreement With the US Defense Logistics Agency Energy Department

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Basta Holdings Corp. (OTCBB:BSTA), an aviation services and logistics management company, today announced that Monarch Air Group has entered into a five year Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) with the Defense Logistics Agency Energy department (DLA Energy) for the supply of jet fuel to various locations outside the continental United States.

Basta Holdings has an exclusive marketing and private jet charter agreement with Monarch Air Group, LLC. The terms of Monarch's BOA agreement with the United States DLA Energy department provides that Monarch will have the ability to bid on any commercial requests from the DLA Energy for "JA1" commercial jet fuel to be provided to OCONUS locations, which are outside of the continental US. Only companies that have signed a BOA agreement with the US government can compete for these contracts.

Basta Holdings' President, Jacob Gitman, commented, "Due to Basta's close working relationship with Monarch Air Group, we believe the Company is in a prime position to broker jet fuel services when DLA Energy puts out contracts that Monarch can now bid on via their BOA agreement. We believe that Monarch and Basta Holdings both have great potential to financially benefit from this five-year US government agreement."
