Entourage Health Corp (OTCMKTS:ETRGF) Stock Falls 7% After The Acquisition News

Yesterday, investors did not seem particularly enthused with the Entourage Health Corp (OTCMKTS:ETRGF) stock and hence, it was perhaps no surprise that the stock tanked by as much as 7%.

Market Action

On Wednesday, ETRGF stock fell 7% at $0.1210 with more than 138k shares, compared to its average volume of 135K shares. The stock has moved within a range of $0.1201 – 0.1300 after opening the trade at $0.13.

Closes Acquisition of Craft Cultivator CannTx Life Sciences Inc.

While the decline in the stock was notable, it should also be remembered that there was no specific news about the company on Thursday. However, earlier on in the week on November 1, the Canada based cannabis distributor and producer had been in the news when it made a key announcement. Entourage Health Corp announced at the time that it had finally completed the acquisition of CannTX.

In this context, it should be noted that the company had previously announced about the potential acquisition. The transaction was supported overwhelmingly by the shareholders of CannTX and the other conditions with regards to the closing of the acquisition had also been satisfied.

Now that the acquisition is complete, CannTX is going to be operated as a fully owned subsidiary company of Entourage. It goes without saying that the acquisition of the privately owned micro-propagating company was a significant development for Entourage. Despite the decline in the stock price, it could still be a good idea for investors to keep an eye on the Entourage stock this week.
