Trubion, ShoreTel: Volume Movers

BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Trubion Pharmaceuticals (TRBN) was one of several stocks trading below $5 and poised to move on above-average volume Friday after the company agreed to be acquired in a $135.5 million deal.

Trubion Pharmaceuticals said it will be acquired by Emergent BioSolutions (EBS) for up to $135.5 million in cash and stock, including upfront consideration of $96.8 million and up to $38.7 million of success-based milestones.

Under the terms of the agreement, each share of Trubion Pharmaceuticals common stock will be converted into the right to receive an upfront payment of $1.365 per share in cash and 0.1641 shares of Emergent BioSolutions common stock. The upfront payment represents a value of $4.55 per share, based on the trading average of Emergent BioSolutions common stock for the five days prior to the deal being signed.

The average daily share volume for is 89,000.

Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCI) climbed by 11 cents, or 5%, to $2.30 in Thursday's late trading session after the company said it swung to a second-quarter profit of 13 cents a share from a year-ago loss of 9 cents a share.

Energy Focus said sales rose to $9 million in the quarter from $3.3 million in the year-ago quarter, and the company expects third-quarter sales to exceed $9 million.. The average daily share volume for Energy Focus is 128,000.
