The Clearwater, Florida-based company said in a securities filing that every 20 shares of its common stock were combined into one share of common stock without any change in par value. The shares began trading on a split-adjusted basis Friday.
The stock declined 29% to $2.95 in Friday’s Nasdaq trading. Before the reverse split, the shares were trading at about $0.20.
In November the Nasdaq granted the company’s request for extra time to comply with the minimum price requirement of $1 per share.
The company said in a statement Friday that its new name is derived from Taranis, the Celtic god of thunder and lighting. Taronis added that the deity is associated with the Celtic wheel, suggesting a circular, sustainable economy.
“This marks the beginning of a new chapter in our company’s progress,” CEO Scott Mahoney said.
Taronis owns a patented plasma arc technology that enables applications for fuel generation and water decontamination.
In conjunction with its rebranding, Taronis said it launched a new website and plans investor content including a library of product demonstrations, corporate and client interviews and on-site video.
