Taronis Extends Taronis Fuels Dividend Record Date
Nasdaq Requirement Due to Reverse Split
PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / August 22, 2019 / Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:TRNX), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental conservation industry, today announced that it has filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation to effect a 1-for-5 reverse stock split, effective as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time today. The reverse stock split was affected by Taronis in accordance with the authorization provided by the Company’s stockholders at its previously adjourned 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on August 20, 2019.
Proportional adjustments will be made to the conversion and exercise prices of the Company's outstanding warrants, convertible notes, convertible preferred stock and stock options, and to the number of shares issued and issuable under the Company's equity compensation plans. The number of authorized shares of the Company's common stock will not change.
The reverse stock split is intended to increase the market price per share of the Company's common stock to allow the Company to maintain the listing of its common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company believes its common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on Monday, August 26, 2019. The Company's common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "TRNX." The new CUSIP number for the common stock following the reverse stock split will be 876214206.
On August 21, 2019, the Company was notified by the Nasdaq Capital Market that the Company needed to revised the record date for the Company’s proposed spin-off of Taronis Fuels, Inc. because Nasdaq is unable to process reverse stock splits while spin-offs are pending. Due to this last-minute request by Nasdaq, the Company has reset the record date for the spin-off of Taronis Fuels to November 5, 2019, which is the date Taronis Fuel’s Form 10 will go effective, assuming it is filed on September 6, 2019. The ex-dividend date will be set by Nasdaq and is expected to be on November 6, 2019. The Company now currently intends to distribute the shares of Taronis Fuels on the distribution date of November 13, 2019.
“Earlier this week, our shareholders overwhelmingly supported the decision to execute a reverse split in order to comply with Nasdaq listing requirements,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis. “As we coordinated this process with Nasdaq yesterday, we were informed that we would be required to extend the record date and ex-dividend dates for the Taronis Fuels spin-off due to Nasdaq listing requirements.”
“We believe this may provide a significant benefit to our shareholders. We intend to file a Form 10 for Taronis Fuels in shortly. We plan to host a teleconference to help investors see the improved financial performance of this business independent of Taronis Technologies.”
“Additionally, we believe we can provide material updates on our Turkey, El Salvador and Amsterdam MagneGas projects with significant milestones prior to the new ex-dividend date. This means that there is now an unexpected additional opportunity for current and prospective shareholders to participate in the spin-off process,” concluded Mr. Mahoney.
