Why Is JanOne Stock Trading Higher Today?


JanOne JAN shares are trading higher on Wednesday after the company announced it will sell all outstanding equity interests of ARCA Recycling to VM7 through a stock purchase agreement.

Customer Connexx is their Las Vegas based call center business and ARCA Canada is the Canadian arm of their appliance recycling business.

Tony Isaac, JanOne's CEO, commented on the sale: "I wish ARCA Recycling's new owner continued success in their business. This sale will allow JanOne to focus wholly on therapeutics where we see enormous potential for growth benefiting our shareholders. Our leadership team looks forward to continuing to bring non-addictive pain-relieving alternatives to market in an effort to reduce opioid abuse."
