The cybersecurity and IT audit company had come into focus among investors during after-hours trading earlier on in the week on Monday when it soared by as much as 94%. The rally in the stock came about after it emerged that the company had inked a definitive agreement by way of which CynergisTek will be acquired by Clearwater Compliance LLC.
