Taronis Fuels to Begin Trading
Initial Valuation Indicates Over $75 Million Market Capitalization
PHOENIX, AZ, Feb. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: TRNX), a sustainability technologies company with patented water decontamination and conservation applications, today announced that Taronis Fuels, Inc. (“Taronis Fuels”) has cleared SEC comments and the FINRA 15c2-11 process and will initially trade under the ticker symbol “TRFN.” This marks the successful completion of the final components of the spinoff of Taronis Fuels, a former subsidiary that was spun out of the Company in December of 2019. Additionally, Taronis Fuels has applied for quotation on the OTCQB Market and has requested the ticker symbol “TRNF.”
As part of the application process, a well-established and respected investment bank was required to advocate for the applicant, including making an initial market in the applicant’s common stock during the initial trading of the newly listed company. As a result, the regulatory bodies required the submission of an initial bid/ask for Taronis Fuels’ common stock, which the investment bank established at a market capitalization of over $75 million.
“We are excited to complete this process,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis Technologies. “We had a very strong conviction that we could unlock value for shareholders through the spinoff process, and we were clearly correct. We have now unlocked significant value for the shareholders of Taronis Fuels, and we are hopeful that with additional near term catalysts, this will continue to increase the value of that company, and drive a growing royalty stream back to the shareholders of Taronis Technologies to support our rapidly expanding water technology business model.”
