Our roundup of Canadian small-caps of between $100-million and $2.5-billion in market capitalization making news and on the move today.

Just Energy Group Inc. (JE-T) announced it sold all of the shares of Just Energy Japan KK to Astmax Trading, Inc. for a “nominal” amount, “as the business was still in its start-up phase with more liabilities than assets and had fewer than 1,000 customers.”

“The sale of Just Energy Japan further exemplifies the company’s commitment and focus to optimize the organization and concentrate on its North American operations,” said CEO Scott Gahn. “The sale eliminates ongoing funding requirements for the Japanese business, as we continue to focus on our business continuity plans during these unprecedented times and on the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities.”
