NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2014) - Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a technology company committed to enabling innovation through the licensing of its intellectual property (IP), today announced that it has sold its wholly-owned organic fertilizer subsidiary, Converted Organics of California, LLC to Converted Organics, LLC, a third-party entity, for $675,000 in cash.

With the sale of the subsidiary, Finjan Holdings' operations now relate exclusively to our web and network security technology line of business.

"This divestiture will advance Finjan's growth plan of acquiring quality, synergistic technology companies with complementary IP portfolios," remarked Phil Hartstein, President and CEO of Finjan Holdings.

Recognized globally as a pioneer and leader in web and network security, Finjan's decades-long investment in innovation is captured in its patent portfolio, centered around software and hardware technologies capable of proactively detecting previously unknown and emerging threats on a real-time, behavior-based basis.
