Taronis Will Not Pursue a Reverse Split to Maintain Listing Status
The Company Has Adequate Capital to Execute Business Plans For the Remainder of 2020
PHOENIX, AZ, April 16, 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 the Company will not take any immediate actions to initiate a reverse split. Management has cleared all material short term liabilities and the Company projects to have adequate cash on hand to fund operations for the remainder of 2020 based on the current business objectives and capital requirements.
“The Company has taken a very proactive position with regards to capital and liquidity management, given the highly uncertain business climate caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis. “The capital markets have become extremely unpredictable, and the Company elected to secure a significant amount of capital to ensure we can execute our business plans without further reliance on the capital markets for the remainder of 2020.”
“We have cleared all material indebtedness. We plan to retire the entire $3.5 million existing convertible preferred equity in the immediate future, and we expect to have little to no vendor and service provider liabilities going forward. We have significant cash on hand at this time, and we intend to make this last for the foreseeable future.”
“However, as a nationally listed Company, our listing status may exceed the value of our current business model. We have been solicited for a variety of potential strategic alternatives, and we will entertain all potential options to maximize shareholder value,” concluded Mr. Mahoney.
