Trxade Health (NASDAQ:MEDS) stock is falling on Tuesday after the company announced it would undergo a merger with Superlatus.

That merger will see Trxade Health distribute 3,839,176 shares of MEDS stock to current shareholders in Superlatus. This will result in these shareholders owning 19.99% of the combined company.

To go along with that, Superlatus investors will also receive a new class of non-voting shares in Trxade Health. These shares will be distributed based on shareholders’ pro rata percentage ownership.

Why This Has MEDS Stock Down

Investors will note that MEDS stock isn’t actually falling on this news. Instead, the merger announcement actually sent shares soaring almost 94% higher during normal trading hours on Monday. Today’s movement is simply the stock settling to a slightly lower price after such a massive rally.

As far as other stock movement goes today, about 155,000 shares of MEDS stock are on the move as of this writing. That’s still well below the company’s daily average trading volume of about 427,000 shares. It also pales in comparison to the 13.5 million units that changed hands alongside the merger announcement yesterday.

Keeping all of this news in mind, shares of MEDS stock are down 12.9% as of Tuesday morning.
