Eligible Shareholders will Receive Five Shares of Taronis Fuels Initial Listing Price Set at $1.00 Per Share
PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2019 / Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis Technologies” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:TRNX), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental conservation industry, today announced that the Board of Directors of Taronis Technologies has approved an increased stock dividend ratio of 5:1, which is an increase from the previous 1:1 ratio. This means that Taronis Technologies will distribute five shares of Taronis Fuels, Inc. (“Taronis Fuels”) common stock for every one share of Taronis Technologies common stock outstanding on the record date for the share distribution. The new record date for the share distribution is anticipated to be November 5, 2019, which is 60 days from the date the Company plans to file the Taronis Fuels Form 10 registration statement.
It is important to note that during the period from the record date to the distribution date, shares of Taronis Technologies will be trading “with dividend” in the “regular-way” market, which means that any seller, including short sellers, of shares of Taronis Technologies common stock will be liable to the buyer of these shares for the full amount of the stock distribution of the Taronis Fuels common stock related to such shares.
The Board of Directors elected to increase the dividend ratio to offset the effects of the Taronis Technologies reverse stock split for the benefit of existing shareholders. Nasdaq also required that the value of the upcoming stock dividend be declared in advance. Based on the Company’s current estimates of the value of Taronis Fuels, an initial dividend value of $1.00 per share has been submitted to Nasdaq.
“Our leadership team has consistently advocated for our shareholders, and we have and will continue to diligently pursue objectives to provide maximum shareholder value,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis Technologies. “The upcoming spin-off of Taronis Fuels is intended to provide the maximum possible additional shareholder value. By increasing the Taronis Fuels dividend ratio, we are intentionally undoing the unexpected effects of our recent reverse split of Taronis Technologies on the previous stock dividend ratio.”
“We are also in a unique position where the declared value of the stock dividend now gives shareholders greater clarity on the potential value of Taronis Fuels. We are confident that our anticipated near term milestones for our Amsterdam, El Salvador and Turkey MagneGas projects could further validate this valuation,” concluded Scott Mahoney.
