Arcadia Biosciences Announces End to Lawsuit Against Arista Cereal Technologies in New York

Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: RKDA), an agricultural food ingredient
company, today announced that its lawsuit in the United States District
Court for the Southern District of New York against Arista Cereal
Technologies, Pty. Ltd. has ended based on a jurisdictional decision by
the court. The lawsuit sought to correct inventorship on key patents for
Aristaa??s high-amylose wheat.

"The vast majority of our GoodWheata?? portfolio as well as the overall
target market for our wheat, soy and other nutrition and ingredient
products is unaffected by our dispute with Arista. Our global
commercialization plans for those products remain on track, with first
sales expected this year,a?? said Raj Ketkar, president and CEO of
Arcadia. "We remain committed to defending our intellectual property,
however, and are still pursuing other avenues to protect our technology.a??

Arcadiaa??s GoodWheat platform is a portfolio of novel non-GM wheat
varieties including high fiber resistant starch (RS), reduced gluten and
others. These varieties have been specially bred for unique value using
Arcadiaa??s non-GM TILLING platform and can be delivered as organic or
conventional wheat. For instance, Arcadiaa??s RS GoodWheat contains up to
94 percent amylose, the highest levels available, which has been proven
to deliver significant health benefits. These same wheat varieties
deliver total dietary fiber levels high enough to meet the US Food and
Drug Administrationa??s "Good Sourcea?? of fiber or "High in Fibera??
designations on consumer packaging.

In addition, Arcadia recently announced a major partnership with Ardent
Mills, North Americaa??s leading flour-milling and ingredient company, to
develop and commercialize innovative wheat trait improvements. The first
project focuses on extending the shelf life and improving the taste of
whole wheat products for North American consumers, driving the increased
consumption of fiber.
